Beta Reading

๐ŸŒŸ I have been beta reading for 4 years now. I have worked with more than 30 authors, some of whom I worked with multiple times. I read and review a lot of books and you can find many reviews on my blog for traditionally published books.


๐ŸŒŸ The Genres I read include: Adult fantasy/ YA fantasy/ Contemporary/ Thrillers and Mystery/ Non-fiction/ Medicine/ Romance/ LGBT/ Picture books and Comics.

๐ŸŒŸ Genres that I don’t read include: Erotica and Historical fiction.

๐ŸŒŸ What can you expect? I like to treat books that I beta read as any other published book I read. In my regular reviews I comment on the Writing style, Characters, World building, Pacing and Plot. I have written a whole post about my reviewing process and feel free to check it out here.

๐ŸŒŸ Do you have questions? If you have any questions after finishing the book, I am happy to answer as many questions as you have and whenever you want, don’t worry and shoot me an email with your questions!

๐ŸŒŸ Medical expertise: I am a doctor and I am happy to help you with any medical question that you have!


Sensitivity Reading

๐ŸŒŸ I am willing to help you with anything related to Arabs, Islam, LGBT and the medical field.


Proofreading

๐ŸŒŸ I am not a professional proofreader but I always had a kind of an eagle eye for this kind of thing. I can provide this service while beta reading your book for an additional small charge.


Translation

๐ŸŒŸ I have been reading more books with Arabic words and unfortunately the translations suck and looks like it was written using Google translate. I can help you polishing the translation and making sure it fits perfectly into the MS!


Turnaround Time

๐ŸŒŸ I can always work with deadlines but the average turnaround time is 1-2 weeks.


Rate and Payment

๐ŸŒŸ I charge 1$ per 1K words for both the beta reading and sensitivity reading services! (A 100K words book = 100$). Proofreading is an additional 20$. I only use PayPal for payment for now.

However, Payment is only after you receive the MS back and you are happy with the review. Otherwise, you don’t have to pay for it! Fortunately, this has never happened before and all the authors I worked with were satisfied!


Additional Note

๐ŸŒŸ I am hard to please, so If I don’t give your books 4 or 5 stars that does not mean it is a bad book! I gave 5 stars only to 10 books among the 200 last books I read. I will make sure to explain why is it not a 5 stars read for me and what could be improved. I will always be supportive and nice to writers as I am also trying to write something!

Best,
Hamad
