Jaclyn Warren | 3 comments Hi everyone,

I’m looking for three beta readers for my novel. It’ll be ready in roughly two weeks.

I also need two sensitivity readers for mental disability (the book mainly focuses one bipolar but does dip into anxiety and depression).

Marta :} | 52 comments Hi Jaclyn,

I would love to beta read for you and while I can't offer sensitivity reading for mental disability - I have a Bachelor in Psychology and I have knowledge when it comes to bipolar, anxiety and depression.
I offer general feedback on plot, characters, inaccuracies, any possible areas of improvement, initial reactions (my reactions as I read your book - my feelings and thoughts on particular scenes) and notes on the manuscript. Optionally, I ask authors to send me a list of questions if they are concerned about specific themes.
I charge 1 Euro per 1000 words and I offer a two weeks turnaround, you can check more details about my service here (including testimonials): https://thecursedbooks.wordpress.com/...
You can contact me at marta_antonella@yahoo.com if you're interested.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Kindest regards,
Marta

What I offer is as follows:

-An honest, in depth review of your writing, i.e what works and what does not. 

-In depth suggestions on how to improve issues with dialogue, wording, story structure and plot points. All of which will be provided to you through a word document.

-I also offer brainstorming sessions through email or discord if you are interested. These are provided at no extra cost.


I charge $2 per 1000 words through PayPal or e transfer.

Esther (estherarenal) | 16 comments Hi, I would love to beta your book! I am finishing my Psychology degree so I can deliver the best feedback on mental health issues. Not only I will provide you with detailed feedback but I will be your copy and developmental editor, meaning that while I will provide you with an extensive critique, I will also give you different pathways in order to improve.

You will get:

- Impressions on the first chapter and hook of the first line.
- Initial reader reactions.
- Feedback on character arc, the cohesiveness of plot, worldbuilding, pacing, and tone.
- I will also correct general grammar and spelling errors.
- Ensure the text has the best readability

My feedback PDF usually consists of these sections:
- Small overall review
- First chapter
- Characters
- Relationships
- Dialogue
- Setting and world-building
- Plot and pacing
- Overall
- Resources

In terms of software, we will work to use one that fits us both. If you have a questionnaire, I will work with it instead of a full critique. In terms of price, it depends on the number of words: up to 50k words it would be 40$ (deliver in 10 days), and up to 100k words it would be 90$ (deliver in 15 days) but if you can't afford it we can work something out!

If you are not sure if your work fits me or want feedback on things I did not mention do not hesitate to message me here or email me at esarenal99@gmail.com (also I can provide reviews of past clients). I will gladly answer any questions you have. Have a great day and hope you find what you are looking for!
