Reviews & Promotion:
I would love to read and review your book. The review is posted on Goodreads, Amazon page where the book is sold, and a special post including a mood board on my blog. Includes the author’s guest post on my blog, and an interview with the author.
Completion Period Estimation: 1-2 weeks upon receiving the book.
Price: $25 per book.
I would love to help you spruce up your unpublished book by beta reading.
Completion Period Estimation: 1-3 weeks upon receiving the book for full manuscripts. Otherwise, the time frame is determined by how much of the manuscript the author has completed. I read 1-3 chapters for free so that the author and I can see if we’re a good fit. Then, half is paid upfront and half is paid upon completion.

0-30,000 words – $25.

(This price is based on an entire draft of an entire manuscript. An additional $25, $50, $75, $100, or $115 would be charged for a second draft. If the author desires to have only part of their manuscript beta read, they can contact me for price-per-word rates.)

“Lydia did a great job pointing out where I was telling more than showing. Additionally, her comments helped me understand which characters needed to reveal more of their motivations. I had cut quite a bit of backstory from the early chapters and Lydia asked good questions that helped me identify which parts I needed to put back into the story. Lydia didn’t just point out areas she thought were problems, she also commented on areas she thought were good.” – YA Fantasy Novelist RR Harper
