5 stars. Heidi's thoughtful and intelligent comments were quite valuable in identifying possible problem areas while providing encouragement at the same time. Particularly useful were her declarations of what works and what needs to be punched up or expanded. I am not making all the changes she suggested, but I gave each one careful consideration because I respect her thinking process and her stated reasons. She is my current favorite in Starr's wonderful stable of beta readers.
5 stars. I thought Nia did an excellent job of beta reading my manuscript. She was outstanding at pointing out the project's strengths and weaknesses, and she was an extremely astute reader with a close attention to detail. I've never had a beta reader before, but it turned out to be a very good experience.
—Sarah Ward, author of Things I Meant to Tell You
5 stars. Nick did a fantastic job beta-reading my book. He clarified some point of view issues with my novel and how to correct them along with many other suggestions and corrections. My novel is much better as a result.
5 stars. A quality, in-depth feedback with so many valuable points for me to consider. Great beta reader, great service, it exceeded my expectations. Thank you!
—STK Chan, author of Future Comes from Behind (Paradigm Shift, #1) STKChan.com
5 stars. Jennifer T. was exactly what I needed at this step in my writing process. She addressed every aspect of my novel and gave me constructive criticism that I desperately needed. She asked questions about the book that I failed to answer and gave me excellent tips on how to make my book better. Great experience and a great beta reader! I will definitely be using her with any future projects!
—Kasey Litchfield, author of Letters to Milo
Jessica's feedback is very thoughtful and constructive, exceeding the bare minimum required. Furthermore, Jessica's turnaround time is excellent! She has given me two reviews ahead of our agreed-upon deadline.
—Belanna Cologne, author of Snakes of Seduction
5 stars. Jennifer did an amazing job beta reading my YA novel. I can't say this emphatically enough. By providing comments as she read, I learned the real-time reactions a reader had to the story, and it immediately shed light on all the areas that need improvement or clarification. She was positive and encouraging and quick to point out what she liked about it. I feel so excited to go back over my draft and incorporate her thoughts. I was also impressed she caught tiny details that I didn't even think of. Thank you so much, Jennifer!
5 stars. Jennifer has a very professional voice for a beta reader. She offers quality, thought-provoking feedback without being excessive. I loved the attention she gave to my opening chapter! I also loved how she shared her impressions as she read along. I will definitely hire her again in the future!
—BJ Leonard, author of The Way of the South Visit Bonnie's website: Bonnie.info
5 stars. Jennifer is a fabulous reviewer. As a writer herself, she knows what to look out for when it comes to plot holes, world building, and characterization. I was blown away by her feedback in the report and the markup. It was not only thorough and on point, but she really took the time to explain the why behind each of her comments and suggestions. I highly recommend her and will gladly hire her again in the future.
5 stars. Jennifer did an excellent review of my book. She gave tips and advice that I wouldn't have noticed or thought about. She caught big flaws that I'd overlooked. I didn't even notice things that she found. So thankful for her review. It was very thorough and informative and very much appreciated!
—Holly O'Keefe, author of Life Broker
5 stars. Jennifer did a fantastic job. She left helpful comments throughout the text, and her feedback was well thought out and exactly what I was looking for. I revised the manuscript with her feedback in mind, and it's much stronger for it. I would gladly ask Jennifer to beta reader for me again. Highly recommend her.
—Paige Howland, author of License to Spell
5 stars. I am very happy and satisfied with the feedback I received from Jennifer! I can tell she took great care and time in going through my manuscript and pointing out helpful ways of improving it. She also took the time to correct a few grammar and typo errors, which I was very grateful for! I would highly recommend Jennifer if you are looking for an honest and helpful beta reader. —J.B. Pettry, author of The Witch's Portal
5 stars. Very good feedback. I got to read many of the things through her comments that I have been working to eliminate. Number one of which was the excessive technical data. I love the science and feel I am writing to that audience subconsciously. Anne-Marie and the other beta reads made me realize how much of a turn off that is. I plan to cut to cut it down down significantly. An interesting thing about the 3 betas reads and in particular this one from Anne-Marie is that the rewrite makes me feel that I am weaving the pieces together now. The creative part of writing the plot points is done. I have the entire story, now getting it weaved together, tight and readable is the task. The feedback was invaluable for me to make a commercial book for a general audience. Not an audience of scientists and engineers, hard for me to let that part go. In part, because it was the essence of my motivation for writing a book about a real landing, and the real risks tied to the technology to make it happen. This was productive feedback. I am glad I had her review my book. —Dan Hurley, author of Mars Polar
Five stars all the way. I’ve gone over the feedback from Christina, and I have to say that it was far beyond what I expected in terms of how much she liked it (yay!) and how well thought out her feedback was. She was incredibly helpful. As someone who has never used a beta reader, I was a bit nervous. But Christina was thorough and insightful and knowledgeable and very fast! My manuscript is better with her advice. I’m so glad I went ahead with using Quiethouse! —Amy Hughes, author of The Wilds
I'd give her a solid 5 stars for beta feedback. Seriously, honesty is the best policy, and receiving her feedback only shows that it is better to go through a service than through someone you know. --Mia Kayla, author of The Scheme
5 stars. Excellent, particularly in regards to characterization. Perceptive, identified crucial areas where fine adjustment is needed. Great feel for pacing and flow. --Kim Zimring, author of To the Death
5 stars. Christina is a wonderful beta reader, and her candid feedback on my manuscript was invaluable. She has a great sense of humor, and this is always helpful for me! She commented on items she enjoyed, as well as areas I might consider revising. The solid information she provided helped me determine if the story I had written was true to the one I had hoped to convey. To have a successful book, the reader must develop emotional attachments to our characters and the storyline must be compelling. Christina allowed me to see where my novel succeeded but also addressed other items I might want to change to give my story or characters more depth. I highly recommend hiring Christina to evaluate your manuscript. She will provide you with insightful feedback and suggestions that will improve your book. --C. Biskamp, author of Trammel
5 stars. I submitted only the first three chapters of my very first attempt at writing a book. This is my memoir. Christina did an outstanding job of answering my questions. I wanted to know if my story was at all compelling and she gave me much encouragement in that area. I also wanted to know about my writing style. Christina was very helpful to me by giving me a very honest assessment of this question and gave me several great ideas as to how I can improve. She was also great at letting me know the parts of these first chapters that flowed very well and which parts seemed jumpy. —Don Tomlinson, author of There Must Be Something Wrong With You
5 stars. Christina gave detailed feedback in the body of my work as well as giving me several thoughtful comments on the questionnaire. She helped me to understand what people would love about my novel and areas that I could continue to develop. —Wendy Million, author of Across the Realms
5 stars. Christina is a great beta reader. She was fast, which obviously made me happy as a writer since we always bite our nails waiting for the feedback. Her comments were insightful and her enthusiasm uplifting. I especially loved that she commented all the things that crossed her mind while reading. It was like riding her emotional journey as she read the book right alongside her. My novel is a better book thanks to Christina's help. I cannot recommend her enough. —Regine Abel, author of Bluebeard's Curse Connect with Regine: Goodreads| Twitter| Facebook
5 stars. Great job! All suggested text changes/issues were right on the money. The responses to the detailed beta reader form were extensive, not short answers. The reader provided a lot of insight about my story, what worked and why it did. And where it didn't work suggested changes or areas to clean up. —David M. Gillespie, author of Obake Neko (Ghost Cat)
5 stars. All of Diane's feedback was helpful. She was thoughtful and clearly put a lot of effort into answering each question on the Beta Reader Questionnaire. —Stacy Benedict, author of Hound Dog Confidential
5 stars. I found Diane's notes constructive and helpful. She was thorough, something I really appreciated. —Devorah Friedlander, author of You See Me
4 stars. Diane lent a great set of fresh eyes to my manuscript, which has really helped me to see where I can improve and where I was being too critical. She was open and genuine in what passages and which characters she enjoyed and where she felt the manuscript could be improved, with specific examples that were easy to understand. Her beta reading certainly helped me to understand my work better, and I expect to see many improvements by addressing her suggestions. —Patrick Cristea, author of House of Shrikes
5 stars. Fiona was remarkably fast and thorough. Her critiques were well-informed and polite, and her compliments were encouraging. Highly recommended. —J. Holmes, author of Torn - Atlas I - The Cloud Cutter

5 stars. Jesse went above and beyond with her carefully though-out responses. Her feedback will definitely help me improve the story. Thank you! —Beau Derque, author of Cheddar the Cat
4 stars. I was very pleased with the work Jesse did. It was exactly what I had hoped for when looking for a beta reader. It was not a rough edit or a thorough summary, nor should it have been. She read the novel and critiqued it based upon character development, voice, narrative arc, style, and flow. For the price of beta reading, what more could one expect? I was very happy with her comments and suggestions. She was able to pick up, with amazing accuracy, subtle foreshadowing early in the manuscript—most encouraging. One highlight for me arose in her comment of the title of the book. She suggested that perhaps I consider a title based upon The Boy Who Cried Wolf, a metaphor subtly eluded to a few times throughout the novel. What she could never have known is that until only a few weeks before I submitted They Flutter Behind You, the title of the book had been The Boy Who Never Cried Wolf. And now I have to rethink the title. Very well done, Jesse. Thank you very much. —Brian Douglas, author of They Flutter Behind You
5 stars. Jessica did an excellent job with my book. She clarified so many points that I had doubts about and gave me excellent tips and resources to improve not only the book, but my writing too. She gave an in-depth report and now I know exactly how to go about improving the story. —Liz M. Dunbar, author of The Crown and the Fortress Connect with Liz on Facebook
Jessica is an excellent beta reader; she pointed out aspects of my story no one else had identified before. She made great suggestions to help me add depth to my characters and clarify some of my disjointed plot lines. I appreciate her thoughtful comments and candid critique. As a new author, I can only strengthen my writing style and story development by obtaining an assessment from a skilled beta reader; and I got this much-needed feedback from Jessica! --C. Biskamp, author of Trammell
4 stars. Jessica was quick, thorough, and made specific comments, often backing them up with examples from the text. She made herself available for follow-up communication and reflected a depth of reader experience in her review. Very pleased! --Dennis Anthony, author of Debunker: Independence Day
5 stars. Jessica's comments were thorough, insightful, and very helpful. She clearly expressed what she believed to be the strong points of the story, as well as the points that she thought could be improved. Her suggestions will serve to strengthen the novel. —Stu Newman, author of Jenny Faltman Books| Twitter| Website
5 stars. Thanks for the quick turnaround on my beta read by Jessica L. Her comments were insightful and helpful. This was my first use of this service, and I expect I'll be back for more. I'll also recommend your company to my friends/author peeps. —anonymous author
4 stars. Jessica provided a thoughtful balance of positive feedback and constructive criticism. She identified several 'big picture' problems with the manuscript, to help me decide what the focus of my next round of edits should be. And she highlighted passages that worked for her, as a reader, which was encouraging and helped me see where my writing style is likely to resonate with readers.. —Clare Favara, author of The Optimist's Apprentice
5 stars. Jessica did a great job, with lots of insights that I could use. After her comments, I felt I had the concepts I needed to make the story shine. —Steve Rodgers, author of Mountain Witch Visit Steve's website
5 stars. Jessica was an excellent beta reader. I found her insights specific, useful, and worthwhile. My work is the better for her input. I will be requesting her to review more of my work. —CT Hawk, author of The Four Paths A Collection of Short Stories
4 stars. I think Justin did a good job giving me feedback that I needed. I found myself agreeing with a lot of what he said that I didn't think about enough (certain characters, lack of descriptions, names, etc). I was looking for realistic feedback and not praise, which I received. I was worried about not getting good feedback and was very happy to be proven wrong. —Tyler Nicholas, author of Galactic Conflicts: First Contact Follow Tyler on Twitter
5 stars. Kat did an excellent job providing feedback at all levels of the book. I felt I needed the beta input to improve the story and to broaden the appeal and readability of what is a very technical science-fiction book. She hit the mark, the feedback will be incorporated into my revision. —Dan Hurley, author of Mars Polar Dan's Blog
4 stars. Kristina was able to meet my expectations by doing everything that we asked her to do. Where she went above and beyond was in the time she took time to consider her thoughts before providing them. The consideration and care was appreciated and I recommend the reader to any author looking for feedback. It's been a fantastic process. It can be nerve wracking as a new author to find someone who will give you truly unbiased feedback, and Quiethouse provided me with that opportunity. —Jeff Renoe, author of The Fracture Saga
5/5 [stars]. Great attention to detail. Chapter-by-chapter scrutiny provides the perfect checklist of details to tweak. Thoughtful, smart analysis. --Kim Zimring, author of To the Death
5 stars. Kristina is a wonderful beta reader. She was enthusiastic about my novel which made me enthusiastic about it. She pointed out inconsistencies and grammar issues. She left notes and page numbers so I would know exactly what page to find the errors I had made on. That helped me greatly so I wouldn't have to go searching for the errors. It saved me time by knowing exactly where the errors were. She pointed out flaws but in a nice way, and I really appreciated it. She beta read my first novel and had done such a great job that I requested her for my second novel as well.
She even left me her e-mail address so I could contact her with any questions or to keep in touch, and I have contacted her on a few occasions. I thought that was wonderful of her to provide me with her e-mail address when she didn't have to. I am so glad she did. When I do contact her she's always pleasant and responds back right away. She also left me a very nice quote that I could use for my novels or social media. I have used that quote over and over, and I don't know what I would have done without it. I can't stop saying enough good things about her. I will definitely ask for her when I need my third novel beta read. —L. J. Epps, author of I Wish I Could Remember You
5 stars. Kristina will provide honest, helpful feedback and give the author thoughts and ideas on what a reader might be looking for in the storyline so it doesn't get overlooked. --BJ Leonard, author of The Defiled and the Second Son
5 stars. Kristina’s beta reading feedback for my novel was very beneficial. Notes provided in the manuscript were concise and helpful. Her summary report of the manuscript covered every aspect, enabling me to act as needed. I was extremely pleased with my services from Kristina and I look forward to working with her in the future. --Thorn Osgood, author of Waning Chance, Book 1.5 of The School of Ancestral Guidance Saga
5 stars. Kristina offered great insights into my novel that helped pinpoint certain problem areas that required addressing yet was encouraging about the big picture. —LD Parker, author of The Tao of Kristen LD's website: https://thetaoofwriting.wordpress.com/
5 stars. Nick was a very thoughtful and thorough beta reader. He gave much more feedback than expected and all was useful, to the point, and improved the quality of my stories. I plan on submitting more material for Nick to review and would recommend all authors to take advantage of a beta reading. —CT Hawk, author of The Four Paths A Collection of Short Stories
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
5 stars. The feedback from Nicole was deep and detailed. She not only read the story and analyzed its plot, she reviewed its characters and pointed out grammar and punctuation errors. Quite an assignment! I very much appreciate the time and effort that went into her review. --Jeanne DuBois, author of Devil in the Pinelands
Thank you so much for the first report on To The Death. Nicole's feedback is excellent—clear, pertinent, and very well thought-out. --Kim Zimring, author of To the Death
5 stars. Nicole provided valuable feedback to let me know how a reader responds to the story. Her comments regarding action scenes and how the characters evolve were especially helpful. She pointed out inconsistencies, which I'd missed and made helpful suggestions regarding transition and flow. Her review definitely helped me make improvements. —Rayna Morgan, author of the Sister Sleuths Mystery series Blog| Facebook
5 stars. Nikki's feedback was very comprehensive, and I appreciated that it was well balanced (with some constructive and some praise). She also provided helpful links to provide further details on her recommendations. I'd definitely ask for Nikki on any future reviews. —Alicia Cardenas, author of Unworthy
