Hello fellow writers! I’m offering comprehensive feedback on your stories
What kind of feedback does that mean? It means I’ll leave in-line comments and an overview comment at the end of your chapters! The overview comment will highlight what I liked, what i thought your biggest issues were, and something nice to take the sting away.
I prefer fantasy genre’s, but I’ll look at anything if it piques my interest. I am extremely picky when it comes to reading a book. I have to be absolutely sold before I’ll invest my time, so there needs to be a real good story and hook to grab me. So, that either makes me a niche reader, or I a reader with really high standards. I like to think it’s the latter.
I reserve the right to deny your requests, there’s no sense in getting sub-par feedback from someone who isn’t interested in your story
I also reserve the right to stop reading at any time If this should happen, I will still comment as stated above, but I will include the reason why I chose to stop reading. Depending on what type of feedback you choose, you won’t be obligated to continue further payment once I stop.
If you don’t like my feedback, that’s too bad. My goal is to help writers grow, not hold their hand and sugar coat things.I’m not afraid to tell you if your writing is crap; however, I’ll do it eloquently, and not meanly. Again, this is aimed to help you improve, I won’t just say your writing is crap, I’ll let you know what I think will help you improve it as well.
What experience do I have? I was an English TA during my last year in college, and personally worked with a number of students helping their writing go from failing grades to A grade material. I’m also a CRLA level 1 certified English tutor which is a national certification.
What types of things do I look for? I’ll look for grammar issues, sentence structure errors, etc. I will state what type of issue you have, and how to fix the issue. I’ll also analyze your plot, character development, any lore or descriptions, and discuss how I feel those contribute to the overall success or failure of your story. I can be nit-picky, and I’m not afraid to call out your mistakes.
Option 1: A thorough examination of your first chapter including prologue with in line comments and an overview at the end of chapter one letting you know what I liked, what I didn’t like, and if I think you have the makings of a decent opener.
Option 2: A thorough examination of your first two chapters (I won’t let you pick and choose chapters because if I don’t know what happened first, I can’t tell you if it’s working or not). I will leave in-line comments and an overview at the end of each chapter, and tell you if I would read on from this point.
Option 3: I will read as many chapters as you like assuming that I’m invested in your story; however, I may not leave an overview comment at the end of each chapter. Once I’ve identified the common issues with your story, there’s no need to beat a dead horse. I will let you know if I see any other common issues, and leave in-line comments for new issues.
NOTE: I’m not going to point out every single issue. The idea is to point out the first one-two common issues, explain what’s wrong and how to fix it, so you can learn to find and fix those issues yourself.
Payment: Should you chose to enlist my services and be accepted, I will require payment in full in the following format, depending on the level of service you choose.
Option 1: A follow, plus a read and thoughtful comment on my first chapter. Did you like it; what did you like about it, etc.
Option 2: A follow, plus a read, thoughtful comment on chapter one, and a followup on chapter two. Does the story make sense, did the chapters flow into each other easily, would you read on at this point, etc.
Option 3: A follow, plus an equal amount of reads, and an add to a reading list for easy access. Depending on how many chapters you’ll need to read, I would be more interested in knowing if there’s any major plot issues or inconsistencies in my writing.

Disclaimer: For options 1 and 2, payment must be made in full before I will begin. For option 3, I will try to keep pace with you; meaning, you read and comment, then I’ll read and comment. Also, with option 3, please preview my book. I want you to be interested in it, not power through it so you can get feedback. If I feel you’re doing this, I will terminate our agreement.
