Editing and Proofreading Services

Beta Reading

What’s Included:

Do you need feedback on your article, short story, or manuscript? Submit your work to me for beta reading.

You’ll receive a detailed critique focused on language usage, plot and character development, structure, voice, and anything else I find that may assist you in the development of your story.

This is not a proofreading or editing service.

For any work up to 80,000 words, expect up to a 7 day turnaround. Turnaround for longer documents will be discussed with the writer.
