Things about you that make you a good beta reader: I am well-read, analytical, honest, and thorough. I have been through the editing and revision process many times, and I understand the “mechanics” of a good book. My insights, while subjective, are concise and considerate.
"5 stars. Nick is a rare find. Knowing he was outside my target audience, I was a little apprehensive on what to expect from his feedback — but I shouldn't have been. Nick detailed suggested words changes, typos, some grammatical errors, and also provided detailed feedback on each section and character of my manuscript. I loved that he was so honest. His feedback told me the questions he asked himself as he read, his thoughts on the characters' desires, and also the overall impression of the manuscript. He reads, offers you suggestions on the finer points, and then takes a step back to assess what he thinks the author was trying to achieve when writing. As long a Nick is willing, I'll be seeking him out to read each one of the manuscripts in the future." --T. J. Dakin, author of Come, Mess Me Up
"5 stars. Nick takes the time to fully digest your manuscript. He understands the paranormal romance genre very well. His suggestions have made a great impact on my work for the better. He always brings a level-headed unbiased view towards your manuscript. I’m glad I trusted him with my work." —Daniel Hunter, author
