Beta Reading

For those of you who don’t know, a Beta Reader is someone who reads an author’s manuscript before they publish their book. All Beta Readers critique books differently.

Some Beta-Readers line-read, which means that they comment on the manuscript itself. They normally focus on correcting grammar and little mistakes.

Other Beta-Readers go through a list of questions and focus on the generalities of the book. They look at the book as a whole and answer all of their questions.

Personally, I have done both ways, but throughout my Beta-Reading experiences, I have come up with my own idea.

Beta Package 
I will give you chapter by chapter critiques. Yes, this literally means chapter by chapter. I will give you feedback on every chapter, including thoughts on scenes and grammar mistakes. I also will give you overall thoughts on the book, such as character developments, plot inconsistencies, favorite quotes, and unanswered questions that I have for you.

This critique is very similar to my developmental editing services. Being as such, as of now, I will be charging a nominal fee for this package.

No matter what you decide to do, I want to discuss with you, the author, exactly what you want, so that there are no miscommunications.

Also, below is a list of my favorite genres.

My Favorite Genres:
~Young Adult
~New Adult (some)

Even if your book doesn’t fit into one of these genres, that’s still okay! I will read almost anything EXCEPT horror and erotica.

    Please fill me on your develepmental editing fees and what that entails exactly. I’m not too familiar with beta-readers. I apologize in advance for any further inquiries.

    Kind Regards

  2. Hi

    The contact form doesn’t seem to be working, I’m interested in your fees and wonder if you prefer to read a book once it’s complete or as a work in progress?

    Many thanks,
