Beta Reading Service

Well done for all your hard work. Now, with our expertise and a fresh set of eyes, let us help you make your story the best it can be.

Beta readings do not guarantee positive feedback. If you are sensitive to critical feedback, please consider other options.

We will provide you with feedback covering the following:

  • Readability of your manuscript. In other words, how quickly did we read your book, how much did we enjoy it, and where did it drag?
 
  • Reader’s opinion. As readers, what did we think of your plot, your characters, and your writing style?
 
  • Positives and negatives. What about your book did we love or hate?
 
  • Questions. As readers, what questions did we have about the story? It’s up to you to decide whether this is what you want readers to be asking themselves when reading.
 
  • Subsequent discussion of your manuscript. Limited to broad question and answer format.
 

Feedback will be provided in the form of a PDF / MS Word. You are welcome to submit a list of questions as a guide, but they will not be reviewed until after the reading AND after the feedback report is written.

We want to work with you as you take your first steps along the publication process by helping you make your fiction & nonfiction stories the best that they can be.

Whether you’re self-publishing, a first-time author, or even a best-selling author, we assure you that your book is with professional beta readers who understand the story writing process and the publication market.

Our honest and constructive beta reading style is friendly, informative, and thorough. We will critique your book and let you know what works and doesn’t work in your writing by covering aspects such as –

As your beta reader, we will give detailed feedback on:

  • Our overall view of your manuscript
  • Readability
  • Plot Development
  • Author Voice
  • Themes
  • Pacing
  • Character analysis
  • Dialogue
  • Plausibility
  • Plot holes and inconsistencies
  • Repeatable issues
  • Light proofreading
  • Setting/Aesthetic
  • Any specific areas that you wish
 

PLEASE NOTE – This service is Beta Reading, not a detailed proofreading and editing service. See this page for book editing or this one for general proofreading and editing services.

The feedback is delivered to you in the form of a Reader Report. We cover your strengths as well as areas that we feel need developing (always linking closely to your text). This report is designed to be developmental and used as a source for you to continue your drafting or refining process.

Our writers, editors, reviewers, and researchers have been working as professionals for over 18 years. They have experience creating, reviewing, and editing content ranging from technical papers to website articles to novels, etc.

Consequently, we know what makes a text tick. Providing honest, unflinching analysis and feedback is part of our training and experience. Let us share this expertise with you, and help you reach your writing goals.

So, looking for objective feedback on your writing? Uncertain about how well your story hangs together, or whether your characters are engaging and plausible? Send your work to us for feedback!

We will beta read your book, short story, or article and provide a detailed, constructive critique. Our feedback will include commentary and analysis on structure, voice, reader engagement, language use, and anything else we find that may help you develop your work to its potential.

If necessary, we’ll provide a sample edit for spelling, grammar, or writing techniques. So that you can be well guided as you refine the rest of your written piece. 

We will offer you an unbiased, thorough critique of your novel, short story, or other written work.  Our writers are voracious readers with an eye for sections of a book that just don’t work. Some of them are that member of the book club who offers their opinion on how the author could make it better. Don’t let future book clubs tear your work apart, let us help!

We would love to help you with the plot, character development, dialogue, structure, and more. Let’s work together to build up your writing, novel, or short story to be the masterpiece you have in your head.

PLEASE NOTE – This service is Beta Reading, not a detailed proofreading and editing service. See this page for book editing or this one for general proofreading and editing services.

We have experience writing content on different topics, in different mediums, and in different styles. We can write SEO-optimized blog posts, articles, emails, product descriptions, and more. We are also diligent editors. We have worked closely with new writers to edit their debut books.

Let our experience help you! Feel free to get in touch with us for your beta reading, writing, and editing needs.
