Chris (chris83) | 78 comments 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
Romance
Horror
New Weird
(I will read most genres.)

I charge $1 per 1,000 words. Contact me directly for a custom order.

Jill Campbell | 31 comments I'm am interested in your beta reading of my memoir, nonfiction 85,000 word, of an extraordinary couple facing their last years in quixotic way. It is humorous and tragic simultaneously. If interested please give me a quote.
Thanks,
Jill
