Beta Reading

Special Offer! $350 for Critique of up to 100k words

What’s Included

A beta read is an analysis of the book from the point of view of a reader, after you’ve finished all your edits.

Feedback will be summarized comments at the end of every chapter on the following aspects:

  • Character impressions

  • Plot cohesiveness

  • Reader engagement

  • continuity errors 

  • Overall arc and theme impressions

  • Other feedback points as discussed

Upon completion of the manuscript, we will provide a Reader’s analysis, generally about one to five pages, summarizing the overall feedback and our suggestions for revisions

What to Expect

When you request one of our services, we will send you an email to discuss your project and our timeline to see if we are a good fit. If we are a good fit, we will schedule your critique and send you a working contract that encompasses our working relationship.

All project reservations require a 50% deposit to confirm. Payment may be made via Paypal.
