Testimonials

“I hired Lydia to beta read my manuscript. She was absolutely wonderful! She was timely in her completion. Her feedback was equal parts constructive criticism and positive encouragement. Her suggestions definitely helped strengthen my manuscript. I highly recommend her services. I will certainly be reaching out to her for future projects.”
– Kristine Anderson, author of the upcoming novel “When War Knocks”

“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 

“I approached Lydia with Book 2 of a series, wanting to know if a reader could pick it up as the first book and still follow along. She worked with me to get it to that point, and I’m starting to feel confident about pushing it out into the world.” 
– Author Anitha Perinchery 
“Lydia is a great pleasure to work with. Her beta-reading focuses on the characters and believable world-building, which was infinitely helpful in my fantasy novel she reviewed. Her commentary is both witty and detailed throughout the process. I strongly recommend her as a beta-reader for a writing project and definitely hope to work with her again!”

“Lydia did a wonderful job helping my vision come to life in a timely manner and provided wonderful feedback to me! Definitely would recommend!” Elia Norina, author of After Him, Over, and In Between 
“Lydia was everything you would want in a beta reader: thorough, responsive, and fast.  She pointed out what worked and what didn’t and gave suggestions for what to do instead, which will help make for a much better story.  I’d be happy to recommend her to anyone.”
