Beta Reading Service

I love reading. It’s one of my favorite things. I’ve been doing it for a while and it’s why I started this blog. I wanted to take things a step further so I decided to start this service. I know that there are plenty of Beta Readers that are free or have a longer list of credentials to be considered professional. I, however, am a reader and who better to read your manuscript than an avid reader?

If you choose this service I will read your manuscript and provide detailed, honest, feedback. I will critique plot, characters, pacing, dialogue. How engaging is that first paragraph? How satisfying is the ending? I will only provide light grammatical edits that stand out while reading because I’m not an editor but sometimes you can’t unsee a typo.

My fee is 0.0005/word with a minimum $10.00. At that rate, 100k words would be $50.00. Most Beta Readers charge 0.001/word but I wanted to be accessible and cost friendly. Payment would be needed upfront and paypal is the only accepted method. I will send an invoice to you and once payment is received, you can send me the manuscript.


I would prefer to receive the manuscript in an editable format however I can accept any format that you feel comfortable with providing.

  • Genres: Horror, Thriller, Psychological Thriller, Suspense, Mystery.
  • Age groups: Adult and Young Adult.
