Amazon Best Selling Author, Beta reader, Reviewer

Beta readers are pre-publication readers who go through your manuscript as a general reader would, but with a critical eye, highlighting plot inconsistency, holes, dialogue issues, etc. Their goal is to help you improve your work and provide you with independent opinion about your story, characters and settings with a professional eye. Usually you'll receive a report, but few inline notes. 

 I cover, via a report and inline comments;

  • Opening scene
  • Characterization and motivation
  • Plot and conflict
  • Pacing
  • World building
  • Dialogue
  • Craft
  • Overall impression
  • Inconsistencies & plot holes
  • Strengths & weaknesses
  • Showing not telling
  • Filler words
  • Lazy writing
  • Writing ticks
  • typos
