About This Gig

BETA READER for your Young Adult or Middle Grade novel.

I will be your TEEN beta reader.    This gig is for full manuscripts.   I also have another gig listed that will provide in-depth feedback on 1st chapters. 

I am a teen guy who is a huge reader.  I do not just read, I analyze. I adore a great story and characters that stick with you.  


I am not an editor.  I am offering a teen guy's perspective on the overall appeal and quality of your story.  

For basic $10 gig:   I will review first 5,000 words.  Next size packages are for full manuscripts.   

Just pick the package that matches your manuscript word length.   You can also buy extra gigs, if needed to match your word count.    

I will read your full manuscript and focus on the overall impression of:

  • Main character
  • Secondary characters
  • Plot and Pacing
  • Setting and World Building
  • Overall impressions
  • Any parts that I think are awesome

I will provide one full, multi-page summary of my overall impressions.     If you have more specific needs or questions, must message me.   I can make custom orders, too.

If you need an order FAST, let me know and order the extras.   

No erotica or graphic adult themes, please.   

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will you help me write the next Harry Potter?
    Wow, that would be amazing and I wish I could but that will have to come from inside you. Instead, I will give you feedback on what I think works and doesn't work for your story. I will give you a fresh perspective and hope that helps you connect with the best creativity inside you.
  • Are you the typical, average American teen?
    That's a trick question. Is there a average teen? That said, I like a lot of things that people associate with American teen guys. For example, I like video games, music, and movies. I also like a lot of geeky stuff, too. And, I am a big fan of fantasy, science fiction and comic books.
  • How do you recognize if a story is well written?
    I look at things such as if the setting and world feel alive to me or not, is there humor to relieve tense moments, or how do the characters feel in relation to other characters. If I see something that feels off, I share that with the author. I also look for how the plot unfolds & if draws me in.
  • Do you read fantasy or science fiction?
    Yes!! YES!
  • Will you review manuscripts other than YA fantasy and science fiction.
    Sure, I have loved some of the stories that I have reviewed that didn't fit these categories. I think the authors appreciated a teen guy's perspective who was not their typical reader (especiallly when their book kept me interested).
  • Do you take custom orders?
    Sure, just message and share details of what you are interested in. We can likely work something out.
  • How about graphic novels or comic books?
    I love them! So, yes, I will definitely enjoy reading either. Just message me, if not sure of which package will work.
