Superbly professional, [Maria] is a top-shelf beta reader and editor here on Fiverr. Her work demonstrates a solid grasp of the writing craft, and her commentary and review of my WIP novel will be uniquely beneficial to me when I begin the revision process. I’d recommend you grab a gig before she realizes just how good she is and raises her prices.

I am extremely impressed with this beta read. [Maria] included a report that captured some high-level issues with my work and details that needed tweaking, in addition to comments about where my writing was strong. I felt as if [Maria] spent significant time reading and thinking about my story, and then offered fantastic advice on how to improve. All the suggestions were expressed with compassion — so important for a starting writer. The feedback arrived early and I would absolutely recommend [Maria] as a beta reader.

This was an outstanding service, it far exceeded my expectations. From the full report to the inline notes within the text, Maria showed that she has great attention to detail and took the time to read through my manuscript. Maria was extremely thorough and gave me sensational advice to improve my story. If you are looking for someone to beta read your manuscript, Maria is the person for the job.

[Maria] is in a word, outstanding. Her comments and insights about the plot and characters are incredibly helpful. I wrote a trilogy and from book one, which she read several months ago, through book three, her suggestions for deepening the characters have been a tremendous help to making these stories much better than they might have been. I highly recommend her work.

She did exactly what she advertised. It was obvious she did a very slow, detailed read of my book and provided very comprehensive report, complete with descriptive margin notes. She even caught the typos/misspelling/misplaced words. I will definitely be revising this work based upon her recommendations and run it by her again.

I am absolutely bowled over with pleasure, surprise, and gratitude with the effort Maria put into my order. I really don’t think I could have asked for any more. She has a critical eye and a kind tongue, which makes her beta-reading both enjoyable and – perhaps more importantly – useful to read. I couldn’t recommend her more, thank you. Use her services!
I am not a fan of paying beta readers to read. I do need feedback quickly, however, so I came to Fiverr. I’ve had bad and mediocre results till now. This seller is also an editor. I cannot speak on her editing as I’ve never hired her for such services. She did go through my manuscript and point out inconsistencies VERY well. And although I did not hire her for proofreading, she did highlight some misused words that I’d overlooked that could have been pretty embarrassing on my part. Her full reading (not skimming, but ACTUAL THOROUGH READING) & inline comments were invaluable. I’d say this was less of a beta reading and more of a manuscript assessment. I’m very happy with my purchase.

Maria communicated well and delivered ahead of the due date. She provided many detailed observations to the manuscript and challenged me on a few issues regarding clarity and pacing which were very helpful. Thanks!
— Erin Brockus
I sent [Maria] a manuscript that I knew had problems, but couldn’t identify on my own. Her feedback was excellent and zeroed in on all those things that I couldn’t see for myself, which is EXACTLY what I needed a beta reader to do. Would highly recommend.
