BETA-READING

Beta-reading is a great way to get feedback on your project in the early or stages, or even before you commit to line-editing work. Below are our list of available beta-readers.

Cat Voleur

Cat offers beta-reading services with a quick turnaround time. This comes with an annotated copy of the work and a follow-up summary.

In your email, please include the length of the story, the genre/subgenre, and any applicable content warnings. Please note also if there is a required timeframe for the project.

Rates

  • $5 flash fiction (1,500 words or under)

  • $10 short story (10k words or under)

  • $5 for every additional 10k

  • +$10 for a rush request

Turnaround

I try to have all beta-reading projects completed within 1 week of request acceptance, but this varies depending on length and my availability. If you need it in a certain timeframe, please make that apparent in your request so we can discuss accordingly. I may charge a rush fee if I have to bump you up on my priority list to finish in time.
