Beta Reading Request
Beta-reading provides one read through of your manuscript and a report highlighting areas of your work that could be improved. 

I will consider:
Readability: Was the story enjoyable? How quickly did I read it? Were there parts where I couldn't put it down? Were there parts that dragged?
Opening Scene: I will evaluate how effective I thought the opening scene was and whether or not I believed the manuscript started in the correct place.
Reader's Opinion: From the perspective of a reader, I will provide my thoughts of your characters and plot. I will detail whether I thought the characters were believable and their motivations clear. I will look at the plot and detail any questions that arose while reading, and highlight any inconsistencies I find.
Author specific queries: Should you wish to provide a list of questions or have an area of focus that you are specifically concerned about, I would be happy to look at these issues.

WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED:
Copy editing, proofreading, grammar, and sentence structure (I will correct obvious mistakes, but will not go out of my way to look for them).
In depth developmental editing. this is not a detailed developmental edit. I am happy to clarify my comments, but they are open to your interpretation, and I will be unable to spend too much time attempting to fix potential problems.
I will not fact check for dates, historical, or scientific accuracy etc.
