As of the other day, I’ve completed the first round of edits to “My Best Friend, Marty”. I cut around 5,000 words, found roughly 2,000 grammatical errors (which is pretty good considering it’s over 111,000 words!), and re-arranged a handful of scenes.
That said, I’m now looking for beta readers! If you aren’t familiar, a beta reader is someone who reads an early draft of something and provides honest and unfiltered feedback hoping to help the finished product become better!
If you’re interested in an early reading, let me know in the comments below and I’ll reach out to get you the file.
The summary of the book, in case you didn’t see it on social media: Matt meets Marty one night. They quickly become inseparable best friends. The book takes place over 20 years and details the ups and downs of their friendship, lives, and their relationships.
