Beta reading, also known as alpha reading, can be your first step towards manuscript improvement.

Entrust your work to me, and you’ll gain valuable insights from an outside reader who evaluates your story from a fresh perspective.

What to Expect from the Beta Read:

During the beta read, I’ll dive deeply into your narrative, identifying strengths and areas for improvement. My inline comments provide immediate feedback, offering you valuable insights into reader reactions. You will also receive a written report with my feedback.

Developmental Editing

For authors seeking a thorough examination of their work, my developmental editing service focuses on the big picture. I assess plot, characters, structure, tension, theme, genre, and writing style.

What Developmental Editing Includes::

Developmental editing can also be called content or substantive editing. It is a comprehensive makeover for your text that improves its structure, content, and organisation. Developmental editors often work with writers from the very beginning of a project or right after the first draft.

Flexible and Transparent Pricing:

Choose from my tiered packages that match your editing needs and budget. Each package includes a set number of dedicated editing hours per month, with the ability to add more at discounted rates.
