Engage Reading In A New Way

advanced reader copy reviewers and beta readers program

Are you willing and able to provide feedback and reviews?

Would you like the opportunity to see new books before anyone else?

If you are an avid reader, with a good working knowledge of English, CDP would like to invite you to join our Advanced Reviewer and Beta Reader Programs.

If you are an active reviewer or a specialist in children’s literature, we would love to send you a free Advanced Reading Copy. All we ask is that you provide an honest review, and publish your review on your blog and at least one large site (Amazon, Goodreads, B&N, etc).

Our Beta Readers are an integral part of the publishing process, and we only chose a few for each book.

You receive an e-copy of the book in a pre-publication format to read for plot, pacing, dialogue flow, character believability and likability, what works and what doesn’t. We really want to hear what kids and parents think!

We formally acknowledge our Beta Readers, and you receive a free copy of the final book!
