Editorial and Beta Reading Services to Suit Your Budget 

As a writer myself, I know how quickly expenses can pile on when getting ready to publish your book, and that's exactly why I want to offer my services at a price that suits your needs. 

Beta Reads

Full service beta reads include notes on characterization, plot, pacing, dialogue, and readability. 

I will not make any changes to your text and just leave notes at the side. I provide commentary on my thoughts as I read so you can get an understanding of what a first-time reader is experiencing. I may ask questions that get answered later on, but I will leave my comment in so you know what I'm thinking at the time.

Editing

Editorial services include two passes through the document and a conversation with you in-between. A third pass can be added on for an extra fee. 

On the first pass, I will read through the manuscript and only make notes on the side. Afterwards, we'll have a conversation and cover all my observations and answer any questions. Once I have a full sense of the story, I'll do the second pass and add in all the edits. 

  • No poetry, please.

  • Any length is okay.

  • All genres welcome, but sci-fi and high fantasy are not my forte. 

  • Erotica is accepted.

I’ve had her beta read a couple of manuscripts, and she always provides great insight into consistency, character development, story pacing, and ideas for improvement, along with mechanical editing.
