Brittany (brittanybeverly) | 7 comments **BOOKED UNTIL 1/1/19**

I'm a new beta reader excited to get started! I want to help you develop your work so you can feel extra proud of it (not that you don't already), which is why I want to offer my services for free.

Currently, I am only reading young adult, new adult, and contemporary romance. I don't have an issue with sensitive subject matter either. However, I'm not really much of a fantasy reader. There are a few times I can make an exception as long as it's not that extreme. If asked, I may ask for a few chapters so I can get a feel for the storyline depending on the blurb.

As your beta reader I will:
* Offer constructive criticism as well as praise/excitement for the things that worked.
* Provide you with as much feedback as possible. I will try to keep it from being too wordy, but sometimes my brain works in mysterious ways. I know some may not understand the point I'm trying to get across, so it's important that we keep an open line of communication to prevent confusion.
* Do my best to read and provide my feedback in a timely manner (depending on the length and if I am reading anything else). It's my hope to keep it under a week, but I will let you know if this isn't possible. I will give you an expected date once we've agreed to work together.
* Be willing to provide additional feedback if you have a question about something specific in your manuscript. It would be best to let me know if you'd like me to focus on it beforehand, but I understand that isn't always possible.

I ask that you:
* Remember that I am new at this and will get better with each read.
* Be understanding if I need a little extra time to provide my feedback. I may have a lot to say, your manuscript may be longer than expected, or something might have come up. I will always let you know if my original date needs to be extended.
* Don't be afraid to ask me any questions about my feedback. I'm here to help you.
* Don't get upset about any feedback I give. Again, I'm here to help you!

If interested, please message me a blurb to my account or my email at brittanybeverly33@gmail.com.

Thanks and good luck!
