Skilled Beta Reading
I'll read through your manuscript once, leaving the occasional comment with my reactions, and write a short note summarizing what I feel are the book's main strengths and weaknesses. While not as thorough as a developmental edit, a beta read can be an economical alternative that provides you with a reader's perspective.
Ready for someone else's eyes on your manuscript? Here's what you'll get from me:
I'll read through your manuscript once, taking notes on what sticks out to me as a reader, including strengths, questions, anything confusing, etc.
When I'm done reading your work, I'll write you an approximately 2-3 page note summarizing my reactions to your manuscript, the biggest strengths and weaknesses, and any light suggestions I may have.

A couple of notes...
I primarily work with fantasy and speculative fiction for middle readers, YA, and adults. Read more about my interests and editing style to see if I am a good fit for your manuscript.
A beta read is a response to your manuscript from the perspective of a reader, not an editor. It is not an equivalent or replacement for the deep feedback and suggestions that come with a developmental edit.
