Because we love to read, we are offering this service free of charge! That's right!
With our Beta Reading service, we will provide feedback on plot development, character development, consistency, etc. We will point out areas that take away from the story and let you know how we feel about the story as a whole.
You will receive a minimum of one comment per chapter, detailing what works for and against the story.
Beta Reading Plus
For a more detailed review of the story, we do offer Beta Reading Plus. With this service, we will take a deeper look at consistency, believability, plot holes, writing style, flow, dialogue....the works! We will look at each scene with a fine tooth comb, ensuring that each scene and the details included add to the story instead of taking away from it. We will research the subject matter, if necessary, to make sure that the story stays relatively true to the subject matter.
Up to 20k words: $10
