A beta reader essentially test-reads your finished manuscript and gives you feedback before you revise and send your work to agents (if you’re going the traditional route) and before you have it edited (if you’re self-publishing).
This kind of manuscript critique is an essential step in the publishing process. It helps you identify the strengths and weaknesses of your story so you can improve it before moving on to the next step.
Why hire me to be your professional beta reader?
Unlike friends, family, and even many fellow writers, I will:
- Be impartial and honest with my feedback
- Respond to your work in a timely manner
- Comment on each chapter, as well as on the book as a whole
- Give feedback in a clear, constructive way.
