My manuscript is 84,000 words, women’s fiction, and has completed two edits. This is my first novel and at this point, I am looking for a beat read to go over what works and what doesn’t in the plot/voice/conflict/etc. I’m not concerned about line editing. I would be looking to get this completed as soon as possible, so please let me know your timing and pricing for this.

I’m keen to find out your price for a beta read of my 86,000-word time travel thriller. The key issues I’d like a keen-eyed reader’s feedback on are: 1. Is the pace too great? 2. Is the ending too wild? 3. Consistency of MC’s growth.
I’m known for sharp twist endings but I’m a little worried I may have stepped over the edge. Please reply to email@example.com

I forgot to ask whether speculative fiction is your strong suit.
