Beta Reading

When you're writing, you can get so involved in the plotlines and characters, that mistakes happen.

That's where I come in.

I get the privilege of reading your unpublished work, and you get my honest opinion as a reader.

I will look at plotlines, character development, language and general 'flow' of you book.

This is not an editing service. 

'Hayley was great to work with!


She delivered her feedback within the agreed upon time frame and offered sound and helpful advice for the beta read of my novel.

I had been pretty stuck in my progress before working with Hayley but with her critique I have been able to move forward.


She identified issues with the story, made helpful suggestions, but was still very positive and encouraging with her feedback. I would very gladly work with her again!'

Sending your work into the world can be a daunting task, whether you are a first time amateur or a seasoned professional.

Before work begins, I will email you a 'Confidentiality Disclaimer' to ensure you that your work will remain between us. 



I work at an average rate of £5 per 1500 words.

This can be subject to negotiation.


I would prefer a Google Doc format, so I am able to comment  as I read.

However, I will also accept email, word documents and hardcopies.
