If you've ever shared an early manuscript for review, you know the pain: Instead of receiving the big-picture, actionable, negative feedback you so desperately require, you end up hearing about typos and trivialities.
Instead, Help This Book nudges your readers with a set of high-value reactions to reveal where they are becoming confused, bored, or loving it. It's a simple change that hugely increases both the quantity and quality of feedback.
We aren't trying to change where you write; only to improve how you get feedback. Continue writing where you're most comfortable and then, whenever you're ready to start hearing from your early readers, simply import the manuscript onto Help This Book, share the link, and enjoy your insights. Posting a fresh version of your manuscript is an instant import from Google Docs and a matter of minutes from anywhere else.
Reviewing hundreds of comments on GDocs or Word can feel like a scrolling scavenger hunt for fresh feedback. (And sending attachments via email is an unspeakable mess of version conflicts and confusion.)
Instead, check your author dashboard for an at-a-glance view of what’s new and where you might want to focus next. In addition to reviewing individual comments, you also data about where readers stopped reading and which chapters are currently most confusing, valuable, or enjoyable. It's a game changer.
