I'm pronouncing this round of Helen COMPLETE. Now I just have to wait for the betas to read it.
This is the worst part. The waiting for readers to read. It's funny, because the general reader complains about how long it takes authors to write books, but I have a hard time finding people who can keep up with me--reading as quickly as I write. It isn't even that I'm all THAT prolific, but reading is something people do in their spare time, and writing is something I do with the majority of my time. Plus, I need fresh eyes for rereads and altered drafts.
I wonder how many readers it takes to produce one book, on average? How many betas do you need to make it from start to finish for your novels?
I have never felt as though I had too many readers, even when I end up with a glut. I'm always eager for just one more, to look at the latest revisions I've made. What about you?
