I want to shine the spotlight on one of Quiethouse's beta readers. Kristina G. has been beta reading for Quiethouse for about seven months now and has received nothing but glowing reviews from the authors she reads for. Kristina is definitely one of our shining stars.
After a beta reader finishes their review and I email it to the author, I always ask the author to rate and review the beta reader. I want to make sure authors are getting what they've paid for and that this service remains helpful to authors. Gregory Austin, author of Philosophical Nonsense & Gunplay, sent a fantastic review after I returned Kristina's beta feedback to him, and I'd like to share it. There is nothing more rewarding to my little editor's heart (as far as work goes) than waking up in the morning to see great feedback from authors, whether it be regarding editing or beta reading. Here's Gregory's feedback:
Kristina was a fantastic beta reader. Not only was it clear that she took the task seriously, there were also many facets of her review that showed she had a vested interest in making the novel I submitted to your service, the best novel it is capable of being. Being a regular participant in local and online critique groups, I entered this process with an intermediate idea of how a proper beta should be, at least in my mind. Kristina far exceeded my expectations.
You can see some of her other reviews here: https://www.quiethouseediting.com/kristinas-reviews.html. If you'd liked to schedule beta readers, please contact us.
Thank you, Kristina. You are a gem. So glad you're on our team.
