Manuscript Beta-Reading

60


60 simbi per hour - Virtual OK

I will read your fiction manuscript (max 90,000 words) and provide detailed, professional feedback on plot, character arcs, overall tone, and my impression of general marketability. On an average YA novel of 70,000 words, my feedback is usually hundreds of tracked changes and comments in the manuscript, plus a 2000 word write-up. Note that this does NOT include a thorough line-edit (though I may make line-edits as I come across them).

I accept all genres but have the most experience in YA and adult SF/F. On average, it takes me roughly 10 hours to complete a 70,000 word manuscript and an additional 2 hours to complete my write-up. Instead of a write-up I'm also happy to meet locally or on Skype and discuss for 2 hours.

Please allow 2-3 months turnaround. I will require a Word .DOC/X if you would like tracked changes and comments; otherwise, any Kindle-readable format for general written feedback.
