    I have a stable of beta readers now, but back when I was just starting out, I offered potential beta readers the first three chapters of my book, and I made certain that what I gave them was as polished and as carefully proofed as it could be.

    If they liked it well enough to continue, only then did I give them the whole manuscript - and again, I made sure it was as carefully proofed and polished as the first three chapters.
