I've joined writing groups on facebook and asked for beta reads of my next book.  For anyone else that plans to do this, a warning.  You will trigger everyone.  I asked for anyone that would be interested and gave a short teaser about the book.  The I asked them to put their age, sex, and what genre they loved if they were interested in reading.

............One comment I got was, "Why do you need to know their gender?  That's creepy."  Well 75% of readers are woman.
another one, "Why do you need their age?  The request should only be about the story."  It's a YA or New Adult book so I need more people in that age group.
And another person told me I needed to use more futuristic terms in my teaser, and the story has nothing to do with futuristic stuff.

Over forty comments on my post and only two people were interested in beta reading the story.

We Love But By Degrees
 We love but by degrees
 A little at a time
 We love with our heart,
 soul, and mind;

 We love but by degrees
 every time
 Someone's life is touched
 by our very presence-
 And we leave a kind
 remembrance on another's mind.

 We love but by degrees
 every time we share the love
 inside of us
 with another on life's way-
 We love but by degrees, every time
 We take the time, from our busy day
 to really listen with our heart
 to what another has to say.

 Yes, we love but by degrees-
 a little at a time
 Often never realizing what part
 Our love has played
 in another's life and heart.

Thanks very much. I wasn't sure which was the most appropriate place for my post.

Welcome to My Writers Circle, weíre happy to have you as part of the community!

Happy to read that you're ready to share and get advice on your own work, that's what this community is all about and we're looking forward to your contribution!

Thanks for the call out on that spam post as well, some do sneak through, in the future feel free to report posts like that so we can get them off the site.

There arenít a lot of rules here as we want to give everyone creative freedom, we ask that you respect fellow community members and help us maintain a friendly place.

Start by checking out the different threads, youíll find Sticky topics at the top of each one which shares a bit about the thread and the purpose it serves, try to use the relevant thread for your topics and if you canít find one shoot us a PM so we can help!

One rule often missed by new members is the 2000 max word count for posts in Review My Work, 1500 max for posts in Review My Script and 100 lines in Review My Poetry. A reasonable limit considering critiques are often quite detailed. You will gain valuable feedback more easily digested in bite-sized chunks.

Please Take Note: With the exception of The Gallery, any work posted in the prose or poetry boards is subject to review by fellow members. You may find some critiques to be worthwhile. Some you may feel do not fit your work. Virtually all are an honest effort to help you improve your writing. Take what you find useful and disregard the rest. This is how we learn our craft.

As a newbie to MWC, you will not be able to edit your posts until you have reached the 50-post milestone. Should be easy, especially if you spend some time on the Games thread. It will also improve your vocabulary and hopefully bring on a few laughs. Have fun.

And please read and comment/critique other memberís work. You will find it also helps you with your own creative effort.

The moderators are easy to spot due to all the blue stars floating above our heads. If you have a problem, we are happy to help. Just click on the private message (PM) icon of any moderator and send along your question or problem.

Let us know if there is anything we can do to help with your writing journey!

Hey iwannabeone,

Moved this topic to Self-Publishing Central as it's more related to self publishing then a writing question.

Let us know how this method of promotion works out for you.

Thanks for sharing!

Barnes and Noble is offering an arrangement for Nook book promotions and, since my books haven't been selling as well as I hoped, I took advantage and set one up, on the B&N website, for all of my (self) published books.

It is a 25% off deal, good until the end of the year. The coupon code is BNPKEN2019. You can review and purchase my books at:

You can also visit my website - for some additional information about me and my books.
