A beta read looks at your manuscript with a reader's eye. We look at the bigger picture of the story, focusing on elements such as character motivations, plot holes and dialogue. We will provide comments, suggestions and questions within your manuscript as well as a feedback report to help writers in their future revisions and edits. If you have any questions for us to bear in mind whilst reading, we can take these on board too.
We offer a free sample edit of 500 words for each service, so you can see if we're the right fit for you and your work.
We work using Track Changes in Microsoft Word, so you can see the edits we have made to your manuscript. Either American English or British English can be used depending on your preference.
Check our Fees page for more information about rates and payment.
