I've just had a crazy idea and I'd like to know what you guys think.
What are your opinions on a Goodreads or facebook group meant to critique an author's work before it is published? For example: If I were to create a group where a select number of you (random genre-fan strangers) were provided with one of my novels, told to read it, and then asked to share your thoughts (good and bad) with the group. My hope would be that the members could create a round-table sort of discussion that would (hopefully) aid in the author's editorial and creative process.
Would any of you join?
What kind of benefits and drawbacks do you think there would be?
Please leave comments to let me know?
