Maureen | 9 comments Hey there!
Beta reading is a crucial part of writing, editing, and publishing. No matter what stage your manuscript is in, it can always be helpful to solicit feedback on high-level concerns and development, as well as the finer details. That's where I come in...

I offer my book services for the following genres:
YA (including most sub-genres)
Romance and erotica (including m-m)
Folklore / Fairytales

If you have a question about your novel fitting into one of the genres above, feel free to reach out and ask from my site:

As a beta reader, I will look for and include the following:
Standard industry formatting (unless you have already done this to your own specifications)
Plotline consistencies
Character development
Overall flow and pacing
World-building, if applicable
Showing vs Telling

Additionally, I would love to purchase a copy once your book is available for pre-order (or after), write a review, and share through any of my outlets. I also provide free site features of authors I've worked with.

I will provide any questions, thoughts, or general comments I have while reading and am happy to answer any of your along the way as well. I have a published children's book and am a self-published author of a YA fantasy novel. I have been through this process, as well as formal editing and formatting processes, and will do my best to pass along any relevant insights or recommendations I may have in addition to the above.

After reading a manuscript, I ask for a few days to mentally process the work, which allows me time to give more thought to the plot and characters. I ask for 1 - 2 weeks in total once I begin and will let you know if I am going to need any additional time due to length or other variables.

If interested, please visit my site: and submit your info on the beta reading page.

I prefer manuscripts to be complete but have made exceptions, especially for those seeking developmental feedback. If you are unsure if your writing is a good fit, reach out through the form on my site.

My pricing is based upon the length of your manuscript.
$25 for 49,000 words or fewer
$50 for 50,000 - 74,000 words
$75 for 75,000 - 99,000 words
$100 for 100,000 - 125,000 words

Is your book longer than Moby Dick? Let's chat and I'll price it from there.

Have we worked together before? If yes, you get a FRIEND discount!

Thank you for your interest!
Maureen Saul
