Beta Reading Requests

This page is for beta reading requests. If you are looking for book review requests, click → HERE

I do not charge for beta reading, but I would truly appreciate if you could leave any notes or testimonials on my feedback. I am new to beta reading and would love some feedback on how to better help writers with their books!

General Disclaimer: I am not a professional editor, reviewer, or publisher. I am not a professional beta reader either.

Opinions Are My Own: My feedback will be honest.

Timing: Please provide me with a deadline of any sorts. I will do my best to adhere to that deadline and will let you know if I cannot meet it on time either beforehand or during the read.

DNF: I reserve the right to not finish a manuscript but will let you know. I will also provide feedback up to the point I stopped reading. Reasons for DNF’ing a MS can be due to timing, getting busy, or I am not connecting with the story. I will let you know and do my best to provide what feedback I can.

  • Dialogue
  • Flow and Plot

  • Pacing
  • How immersed I was or how much I got lost in the read (Hook)
  • World Building
