Beta Reading (fiction only)

Honest Reader Feedback

Our beta-reading service is for any writer seeking honest feedback from readers about their book. A beta read can help identify issues with readability, cohesiveness, or marketability. When you send us your book, we’ll share it with a pool of trained beta readers. You can choose to hire one, two, or more readers to read your manuscript and provide an honest response to your work.

You’ll receive a detailed beta-reader report outlining the reader’s thoughts and opinions on the strengths and weaknesses of your manuscript, if there were many grammatical or spelling issues, and whether they would recommend a more advanced editorial service. This is an important next step when seeking an unbiased opinion, working on a budget, or dealing with a novel of complexity that could use a professional eye.

We are accepting only fiction manuscripts at this time.
