I have suspicions my Beta readers are not as objective as they say...
I am wondering how to go about finding honest Beta readers. I had three good ones, from different demographics, while I wrote my first novel and it helped massively in the process. Additionally, they were useful when the substantive edit was finished. So now my copy edit is finished and I am sending my ms to agents, I wonder if perhaps I should have endeavored to discover more beta readers?
Where are they all? perhaps my 'polished' ms isn't as sparkling as my editor and my beta readers led me to believe.
