I haven't done this yet, and wouldn't plan to without some assurance it wouldn't be detrimental. But since my beta responses thus far have been very positive, I was curious if there's a way to use that to my advantage other than just for my own satisfaction?
It seems like it might seem amateur to an agent, but I figured it would be best to hear the community's opinion on this. Thanks!
Nope. Don't do it. Don't even think about it. As a former agent, I can promise you it will garner nothing but eye rolls; and yes, it does look very amateurish.

Also, if your mother loved the book---don't mention that, either.
