Wait time for Beta Readers
« on: May 14, 2020, 07:54:01 AM »
I’ve got my book out to 11 beta readers and I’ve only heard back from three of them. This weekend will be one month for most of them. Should I reach out with a little push to see how things are going? I feel like if someone agrees to read your book they are avid readers and shouldn’t take forever. Everyone’s thoughts??

If you've swapped beta reads, yeah, I'd nudge (e.g., "how's it going, am loving yours"). Otherwise, I'd let it slide; radio silence may their way of saying it's not working for them, but they're not keen on saying so directly.

Tough situation.
