Chris (chris83) | 78 comments The first two people to respond will receive a free beta read of 25,000 words of fiction.

I can keep reading after that for $1 per 1k words.

Here is my website and information. Comment on this post or contact me through the site.

Your beta readers take a long time to read your book, fail to give you any useful feedback, never finish reading the book, or don’t start reading it at all. People ask me why writers need to pay beta readers; I think the answers to that are obvious.

I’ve read over 630 books in the past five years. You don’t read that many books without learning to pick out what makes stories work. Additionally, I practice critical reading and have studied creative writing. With two novels under my belt, I’m confident I can pinpoint any problems your manuscript has.

My feedback is prompt, organized, honest, and constructive. I believe in encouragement. As a writer myself, I know how much work you’ve put into your novel, and I won’t waste your time. Tell me what areas you struggle with, and I will give it special attention.

Here are a few of the things I will be examining:
Plot structure and pace
Character development
World building
Plot holes
Dialogue problems
Scene structure

My favorite genres:
Science Fiction
LGBT Fiction & Romance
Horror
New Weird
(I will read most genres.)

J. Z. Kelley (jzkelley) | 18 comments Hi! I realize it’s been a while since you posted this offer. Is it still available?

I’m seeking betas for a queer dark fantasy short story. I’d be happy to pay your usual rates if the offer is closed.

Margaret | 28 comments Does this offer still stand? It’s from a long time ago so probably not. Just wanted to check
