Deluxe: Up to 20,000 words beta read

I will deliver a short report afterwards (250+ words), as well as in text comments.

I am happy to read short stories, ebooks, novellas/short novels, essays, articles... anything you want some feedback for.

Longer works will also be considered, please contact me for a custom order.

To get the best out of your beta read, here are some tips:
-ask your beta reader to focus on certain elements you might be concerned about eg plot lines, character motivation, realistic dialogue etc.
-edit your own work - I can edit for you (this is an additional price), but the easiest beta reads are the ones that send through their best work.
-remember that the beta read should be one of the last things you do, not the first! If you want an alpha reader (the first reader to see your draft), you can search for this gig on Fiverr.

My fiction interests include:
-realism
-romance
-young adult
-children's literature
-chick lit
-Christian themes
-self help books

I will read almost anything though, please contact me if you would like any clarification.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you read academic papers?
    Yes, I sure do! I can read academic work, such as essays and papers. I am trained in education, theology, youth work and communications. A beta read for academic writing will have a focus on the essay structure..
  • I have a novella or novel I would like beta read. Can you help?
    I sure can! Please request a custom order if your work is over 40,000 words.
  • What does a beta reader do?
    A beta reader finds the bugs in your work for you - think about beta versions of apps. Lots of people don't want to ask their friends to read for them, so they access beta readers. Remember, beta readers want to read your best work - make sure you have reread and edited before sending.
  • How will you help me?
    I will provide honest feedback in a beta reader report. Usually these are around 500+ words. I also make comments in your document, so you can see exactly what I am talking about straight away. I can answer questions you have about your work during and after the process also.
