Beta Reading

A read-through of your unreleased first draft from a reader's perspective by a decade-long writer who does not have the emotional labor of love connection to the piece. The read-through includes written specific line-by-line commentary on the story’s structure, pacing, consistency, and advice on better developing the characters and filling in plot holes. The feedback is given with the goal of helping the story to emotionally and intellectually impact its intended target audience. An hour-long discussion via telephone or video conference on the feedback will accompany the written notes.

PRICING: $25 per 5000 words ($0.0005 per word)
