I'd recommend Melanie Kirk with eyes closed to anyone looking for an insightful beta reader who will provide intelligent feedback. This was our first time working together, and I can safely say it won't be the last. Do yourself a favor and send her your book today. - Noel Davila

Authors who have completed several drafts of their novel and who are seeking objective feedback on the big-picture aspects of their novel prior to the copy-editing and proofreading stage.

What's included?

I'll make comments in Word as I read your manuscript, giving you my immediate reaction to the story. I'll also write up a three to five page report with detailed feedback, letting you what works and what doesn't in the following areas:

  • Plot

  • Characterisation

  • Pacing

  • Dialogue

  • Setting

  • Point of View

  • Writing style
