I'm doing something different this time with book #2 before I send if off to beta readers.
My Mac has a text to speech program that I'm utilizing. If I were to read my manuscript aloud (and I've done this previously) I know for a fact that I will skip over unwanted or incorrect words. But with a mechanical rendition that's impossible. As I've followed along, I've picked up too many repeated usages (not an alliteration), the wrong word because one letter was off, and many other things.
Have you tried this before?
It's all better with friends.
