beta read and critique your novel or short story

About This Gig

Have you ever wondered if your story is any good? Have you ever painstakingly finished your novel and awaited comments from a beta reader only to hear, “Yup, it was good,” or nothing back at all?

The hardest part about writing is getting someone to read it and finding a good beta reader can be difficult.

Let me do that for you.

Here is what I offer: I will beta read 2,000 words of your novel, focusing on the following:

Opening Line - Does it hook the reader?
Dialogue - Does it flow or is it overly wordy?
Character inconsistencies – Do they all behave like they should?
Pacing and Flow – Where should your story speed up or slow down?
Description - Do your descriptions fall short or too long?
Plot holes – Is everything wrapped up in a neat little bow?
Overall critique of the manuscript from the perspective of a reader.

Please be aware that this is not a grammar edit. Should I spot any errors in your work, I will leave a passing correction. I will leave comments and suggestions for you to fix and to improve your manuscript.

*For works over 2,000, please contact first*

Thank you for checking into my gig and I look forward to working with you. Until then – keep on writing!
