Professional Beta Reading

Not sure what kind of editing your book needs? Need some feedback on your work-in-progress? I'll read your manuscript, make notes in the margins of specific areas that need attention, and provide a thorough critique to help improve your work. This service is similar to light developmental editing.

**Sometimes a book is estimated to need one level of editing but is later discovered to need something more substantial. If I think your manuscript needs more work than I was contracted for, I will contact you as soon as possible so we can renegotiate the terms of the edit.**
