I am a language professional, but more importantly, I am an eager and passionate reader. I read to learn something new, to be swept away in a story, or to get to the heart of the questions underlying intriguing research. As a beta reader, I aim to provide writers with feedback as a representative of your audience.
I will read fiction and non-fiction manuscripts intended for various audiences and seek to give you insight into the mind of your reader. What did your text make me feel or think? What questions did it evoke? I will watch for issues that may disengage, confuse, or bore your reader and alert you to weaknesses such as
lecture-like exposition that is uninteresting or unnecessary,
too many or too few details,
weakly supported arguments or plot holes, and
areas that still need development.
If you're interested, please message me before ordering to confirm availability and the appropriacy of this gig for what you're seeking. NOTE: This is a sample edit. A custom gig will be created for short-form fiction and beta reading beyond 2,000 words. Gig does not include copy, stylistic, or developmental editing.
I will assess your MS for readability, continuity, accessibility, and clarity. [2,000-word sample]
