Looking for a Few Good Readers

Space NeedleRegular readers of my blog know I’m preparing an ebook about Seattle photography.The book describes over 80 places in Seattle to take some great photos.

The book is now completely written and has been through one edit. All the photos are inserted (except one, which I still need to take, and hope to do so in the next week or so). And now I’m looking for a few good readers to give me feedback before putting it to press. If you want to be a “beta reader” and tell me what you think, please leave a comment or send me a separate email. I’ll pick several people to send a draft pdf copy of the book to, and those that give me feedback will get an acknowledgement in the book and a final production copy. Here’s what I ask:

1. give honest feedback – what you like, what you don’t like, how can the book can be improved

2. provide a quote (and give me permission to use it) that I can use in marketing the book

3. try to get it done by May 15th

4. and consider writing a review of the book on your own blog (I’d really appreciate it)

So if you are willing to help out, please let me know. I’ll email volunteers next week. Thank you for considering helping.

  2. Joe, I’d be delighted to take a look at the PDF and offer some feedback. I have never visited Seattle, so it would be the eyes of a total outsider to the city, if that is helpful to you.

  3. Joe,
    I have enjoyed you blogs over the past couple of years so would be glad to assist if you like.
    You are my most used photo connection to my hometown as a child.

    I do quite a bit of editing in my work, so if family members are allowable help, let me know.
    I’d love to see the photos.
