18 & Over Book Blogger Follow #45: Say you're a beta...

ReadingBetweentheWinesBookClub
 
18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that begins on Fridays and runs through the weekend, hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines. This is a Friday blog hop with the objective to find and visit other book blogs that share the same interest as you, namely books geared towards the 18 & over crowd, and make some new friends!


How to join in:
-You should run a book blog that features and reviews mostly adult reads, some Y.A.’s are okay but 18 & over adult reads should be your majority.
-Make a separate post for the 18 & Over Book Blogger Follow on your blog.
-Copy the html for the button above and place it at the top of your post.
-List & answer the ‘Question of the Week.’
-Place your name and blog title in the linky below and the url for a direct link to your post
-Visit the other blogs on the list and say 'Hi!' Following each blog is not mandatory but I know it is always appreciated, and if someone comments saying they’re a new follower it’s polite to follow back. J It’s always nice to spread the 18 & Over Book Blogging love!
-Contact me (readingbetweenthewines10 at gmail dot com) with any questions!


Question of the Week: If you could beta read for any author who would it be and why? 


There are so many great authors that I would fall at their feet to beta read for but if I had to pick just one it would have to be J.R. Ward. 
As to the reasons why; I would like to say it had something to do with watching the story come together first hand, the characters develop, seeing it all raw and all that but I'll be honest. I'm not a patient person, I just want to get my hands on the story early without having to wait for all the publishing hoopla and release. lol I want it now, now, now! ;) I think a lot of you all can relate. True. 

Double Time (Sinners on Tour, #3)I think Olivia Cunning would be great to read for as well. I've seen her make some comments about the editing process that makes me curious as to how her Sinners would be pre-edit. Hmmm...Yes, I think I would like to see that very much. So ladies, if you need someone to look things over for you I'm available! Wow, sounds like a really bad line in a single's ad doesn't it? lol 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Great choices! I'd love to be privy to the Warden's thought processes, too, and Olivia sounds like she'd be great to beta for.

Oh yeah Ward would be great! It would definitely be interesting :) Haven't read Olivia Cunning yet but from what I've heard that would be a good time too!

Great choices! I couldn't pick just one to be honest. There are just too many wonderful authors out there.
