Beta Readers For The Sword of Shannara

Hi Everyone,

The time has come. The Sword of Shannara Limited Edition is about ready to go to the printer. Marc Simonetti has finished signing the signature pages for the book and Terry Brooks will finish signing this coming week, I am told.

That means the book can go to the printer by late next week, maybe early the next week. But I am a perfectionist when it comes to the books I love and no other book has influenced me as much as The Sword of Shannara.

So I’d like to offer 10 beta readers the chance to read the Limited Edition of The Sword of Shannara. The more eyes on it, the larger chance we catch something that is an error. The files that Random House sent me were older files built in an older software, and I want to make sure the transition from Quark to InDesign files happened correctly.

What is needed? The beta readers will read the book as a PDF on an electronic device. That’s the first thing that is needed. You also have a week to do so. The Sword of Shannara is a large book so if you can’t read the book in the next week, please do not offer your services. It helps no one to do that.

Those who can beta read will be given a rare Marc Simonetti piece of artwork from the book. It will be signed by Marc and Terry.

Use the contact form below if you want to read The Sword of Shannara Limited Edition. I will select beta readers on Monday.

Clock is ticking! Let’s get this book finished and sent to the printer!

  1. Hello,

    I would absolutely be ecstatic to be a beta reader for this book, and it would be my honor to provide any input I possibly can to help you guys catch any errors.
    Reading The Shannara books has been a passion of mine for several years now, and it would be a dream come true if I could help in getting this book finished
