Having a completely fresh pair of eyes, that aren't too close to the project is always a plus. With the beta reading approach, you can gain some valuable insight into your book, novel, or comic before you publish it. Everyone hates criticism. It just doesn't feel good to have something you work on picked apart. However, this is necessary to grow in your field. I am a freelance writer, who has written many pieces over the years, including scripts/screenplays, fiction stories, and articles, and I currently own and operate a video game entertainment website with frequently published articles. I have great attention to detail, and have an understanding of the more complex ideologies/psychology and symbolism/philosophy that many writers try to invoke in their stories. I will give you constructive criticism and ways to improve, not make you feel as if you cannot write. All manuscripts will be kept strictly confidential, and treated professionally and with integrity. Let me help you create the best story possible with my advice and feedback regarding your project!

What is included

  • A list of the areas that need improvement, marked by page number and highlighted, followed by the suggestions.
  • An extra appendix list of all the changes I would make and what was particularly engaging, crucial to the story, and what was impressive.
  • Valuable feedback regarding flow and fluency, readability, syntax, grammar, punctuation, character development and descriptions, dialogue, continuity and more!

What is not included

  • Writing the story for you.
  • Proofreading and editing.
  • If these are something you are interested in however, please see my other Task Army services.
