What is a Beta Reader?
Beta readers are people who read a manuscript before it gets published. Beta readers have an opportunity to tell the writer what they did or did not like about a story, point out plot holes, unlikely scenarios, inaccurate information and so forth.

The King's Inquisitor
The queen of Scotland is dead and the almoner’s son, William, has fulfilled his father’s wish that he should serve the king, James VI, at court. But when William finds himself caught between loyalty to his long-time friend and sovereign, and following his own conscience, he finds the choice too difficult to make. As William is forced to serve as the king’s inquisitor in the North Berwick witch trials, he must make a decision. Will he do what the king asks, and earn the wife, title and prestige he has always longed for, or will he let a wild Scottish lass with suspicion hanging over her own head, influence him to follow his heart and do the right thing?
