The beta readers on our team are intelligent experienced readers who provide constructive criticism and logical feedback to authors. Each reader has signed a nondisclosure agreement (see below to read the agreement) that guarantees your manuscript remains confidential. At Quiethouse, we strive for excellence.
$1.50 USD per 1,000 words, per reader, rounded to the nearest thousand (A 100,000 word book would be $150 for each reader hired. 100 x 1.5 = 150)
Minimum fee is $50.

How It Works:
*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.
NOTE: This is not a paid review service. Writing/posting review is optional for the readers. If the beta reader feels the book warrants a three-star review or above, he or she has the option to post a review on Amazon and Goodreads. No reviews under 3 stars will be posted. This is just a bonus, not a given. If the beta reader chooses to write a review, the author will have the option to approve the review before it is posted but will not be able to change it. The purpose of offering optional reviews is that sometimes a reader enjoys a book so much he or she would like to support the author by reviewing the book.
