Sharon Umbaugh | 379 comments Professional editor and beta reader with traditional publishing experience. The Writer's Reader, offers reading services for literary fiction, contemporary fiction, suspense, romance, psychological thrillers, YA and fantasy. Other genres will also be given consideration.

Visit my web site to see my extensive publishing credentials as well as types of services offered.

My unique "beta brain read" focuses on flow, structure, voice, character development, showing verses telling, dialogue, language, level of interest, description and much more. This type of beta reading allows writers to "see" into my mind as I read so they can view their works from fresh perspectives.

I have a stable of 62 writers both published authors and indie writers. New writers are welcome.

WIP submissions are encouraged. If you are uncertain if or how you should proceed with a particular manuscript, I will offer my opinion and suggestions.

Contact me at so we can determine if we are a fit. Now booking for June. Thanks.

Elaine Hi Sharon, I sent you an email on 27th May for beta reading and haven't heard back. Should I send you an email again? Thank you!
