What about copyright and privacy?
I save and store your manuscript on a private computer and will never share or distribute your work. I will ask your permission before sharing any feedback or testimonial you provide to me and otherwise all communication and correspondence will be entirely confidential.
The vast majority of beta readers are helpful and avid readers looking to provide writers with useful feedback on their work. However, there is a lot of trust involved in sending someone your manuscript before it is published and concerns over privacy, plagiarism and copyright are a good reason to use a professional beta reading service.
