I offer FREE beta readings and book reviews to aspiring writers and indie authors.
Why? Because I am a published fantasy author and avid reader of fiction. Because I want to give back to the writing community that helped support and encourage me. Because I’m an indie author and writer-mom. Because I know how hard it can be to gain feedback while writing or to aquire published book reviews on sites like Amazon and Goodreads.
My Guidelines: I can beta read an unpublished story or provide a book review on a published book. I prefer reading New Adult Fantasy, Adult Fantasy and Paranormal Romance. I will occasionally read Young Adult Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Romance, Cozy Mysteries, Graphic Novels and Children’s Books. I do not read Erotica, Westerns, Thrillers, Horror, Poetry, Comics, Memoirs, and Non-Fiction.
My Style: My readings are slow and in-depth, covering everything that catches my attention. I focus on the characters, readability, my first impressions, my thought process as a reader, any plot related issues and/or confusion, etc.
My Preferred Format: I prefer to work in google documents for beta reading and with MOBI (or EPUB) files for book reviews.
Contact Me: I can be contacted for a beta reading and/or a book review via email or Twitter. While there is no guarantee that I’ll agree to read your story or provide a fast turnaround, I’ll be genuinely delighted to hear from you.
I’ll also promote the authors I read on social media.
I’m glad I discovered fantasy author Azaaa Davis. Her Nadira Holden, Demon Hunter series is a #mustread. #urbanfantasyauthor #urbanfantasybooksTweet
