Feedback is powerful. As we respond to it, learn from it, and sometimes resist it, our writing-muscle grows.

But the process can be complicated ...

  • "I can't find the right beta readers."
  • "They don't give me anything useful."
  • "They all have a different opinion."
  • "They hated my book and broke my heart."


Multi-award-winning author Belinda Pollard has faced these challenges and developed unique solutions, drawing from her work as a developmental editor over two decades.

This practical, enjoyable book shows how to get the feedback you need and apply it to your writing in a way that strengthens your book while protecting your vision and your voice.

Use the Power of Feedback to Write a Better Book will help you become the writer you were born to be.

Use the Power of Feedback to Write a Better Book was originally published as Beta Reader Superhero.
