Professional Beta Reading Services

What is beta reading?

Beta reading is when someone usually a close friend or family will read your story, and they will tell you what they liked and didn’t like about it. Depending on their skill level, their commentary can range from a few sentences to 3 to 5 page reports covering every plot element in your story. 

Beta readers are essential to making sure readers will enjoy your story when it’s published. It’s best to get beta readers when you’re nearing your final draft so that you can fix any last minute sections in your book before publishing. My professional beta reading packages provides in-depth feedback and a fast delivery to push your story further to getting published.

Hear From My Past Clients

“I found Diamond’s critique services to be one of a kind. I truly feel lucky to have found such a reliable, honest and professional reader. Her feedback helped me to strengthen my novel precisely where it needed it by pointing out both what’s working and what’s not in a well organized report. I will certainly be coming back to Diamond for my next project.”
