Looking For an Alpha/Beta Reader?

Post by Wyeth Doty

Hello Path2Pub readers! 

You may recognize me from the Countries We Write In series here on the blog. I shared snippets of my life and writing journey in South Korea. 

Now I’m back with a little bit of a different post. Today, I want to share my business with you. I have recently ventured into the world of Freelance as an alpha/beta reader on Fiverr. If you are an author looking for someone to read your book and give you feedback, I am totally your girl! 

First of all, I want to explain my process and what I offer. I have 3 different packages that I currently offer. 

1. The basic package, which is anything up to 9,000 words for $15 and is delivered after 3 days. 

2. The standard package, which is up to 80,000 words for $25 and is delivered after 14 days. 

3. The premium package, which is up to 150,000 words for $35 and is delivered after 21 days. 

What I offer with each of these packages is: my first impressions of the story and overall thoughts about what works and what doesn’t work or what needs a slight rewrite, line by line reactions/questions, notes on the characters, plot, etc., and encouragement. I also give a full report with my overall thoughts, and then my thoughts on each individual chapter and character.

I have a few “beta/alpha reader” questions that I like to answer as I am reading, and I include the questions and my answers to them in the detailed report. I try my best to be as thorough as possible. I’m also an author and I love to get feedback from others about my stories, so I want to make sure I am giving out exactly what I would want to receive as an author. 

I absolutely love this work. I love the chance to be exposed to other up and coming or aspiring authors and helping them make their stories greater. Being a writer myself, I know how daunting and scary it is to give your story to someone else for critiques, so I do my best to be honest while still being professional and kind. I want authors to know that I am on their side and I support their journey and them telling their story how it’s meant to be told. So, if you are an author out there and you need someone to read your story, I’d love for the chance to work with you. Currently, I only offer my services on Fiverr. You can find me by searching my name: wyethdoty or by following this link: https://www.fiverr.com/share/xpldx1

I look forward to hearing from some of you very soon! Have a great day, and happy writing!
