The beta readers on our team are intelligent experienced readers who provide in-depth constructive criticism and unbiased feedback to authors. Each reader has signed a nondisclosure agreement (see below to read the agreement) that guarantees your manuscript remains confidential.
What Is Included:
In-depth feedback from experienced beta readers who are familiar with your genre
Our detailed Beta Reader Questionnaire (see below) and comments throughout your manuscript
A rating (0 to 5 stars), which allows you to know how other readers might rate your book if published at this time
How It Works:
Use the form below to request beta reading. We will respond to your request as soon as possible.
Once we have everything set up, we will send an invoice to you. Payment is required before work begins.
You send the manuscript to us via email, and we will then send it to the readers. Word documents are preferred because it is easier for us to leave comments in the manuscript.
The feedback will be returned to you when it is completed by the reader(s) on or before the deadline, barring any extenuating circumstances (which is rare).
You may contact Quiethouse any time during the process with questions or concerns.
*We do not accept first drafts. You will need to have done some revising and self-editing before sending to us. Read your manuscript through at least one time to make sure you've told your story the way you intended to. It is a waste of your money to send your story to us before you've completed your work on it. We will not accept newer versions once the reading has begun.
$2 (USD) per 1,000 words, rounded to the nearest thousand, per reader (For example, a 60,563-word book would be $122 for each reader. [61 x 2 = 122]) Rush jobs will incur an additional fee.
Minimum fee is $75.
If you want previous books in a series read (with no beta feedback) before the current book is beta read, the rate is $0.50 per thousand words per book, per reader.
