Beta Reader Sci-fi or fantasy


20 per unit - Virtual OK - Posted Feb 11, 2017

I will read your sci-fi or fantasy manuscript and give you unbiased feedback. I will comment directly in your manuscript on the smaller issues, and give you a one page overall review. I will be honest, and strive to help you make your manuscript the best it can be.
Please be aware that I am not acting as a professional editor. I will not find all of the grammatical or typographical errors (though I will point out the ones I do find). Primarily I will be looking for bigger issues - for example, did you character say something that contradicts information given previously? Did you repeat actions in a scene? Are you switching back and forth between first person and third person point of view (accidentally)? I'll point out errors like these, and ask questions when something is unclear.

Training & Qualifications

I've been reading sci-fi and fantasy novels since I was 5 years old. I read about 200 a year. I know this genre, and I can give you some good advice for your writing. Or I can tell you if it's great and ready for the big time.

About Amitra Schwols

I guess it's easiest to explain who I am by describing what I've done. I've earned a Bachelors degree in science, with an emphasis in math and physics. For fun I also earned a minor in English. I also... have a Masters in Public Administration. I've worked as a nuclear electrician in the Navy, a middle school/high school mathematics teacher in public school, an educational content analyst and curriculum writer, and a homeschooling mom. So, that's what I've done. I guess the other part is - what do I believe in. I believe that people are innately good, though they sometimes get led down a bad path. I think children, when given gentle guidance, can thrive a lot better than they do in a rigid structure. I believe in using science and research to determine public policy. Finally, I guess to tell you about me, I have to tell you a little bit about my family. I live with my husband, father, son, two dogs and a cat. I guess that's it - now you know everything important about more
