Beta Read

“In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.” – Mortimer J. Adler

A reliable and timely beta read. This is one pass of a self-edited manuscript in order to prepare it for further self-edits before querying or sending to your editor.

This is not an edit, nor a meticulous comb-through of your manuscript. This read will look at the overall entertainment quality from a reader’s perspective where we look at what works well for the manuscript, characterization, plot cohesiveness, pacing, and obvious spelling/grammatical errors. Special attention to certain areas can be requested. Continued correspondence is also included in this service.
