Alexia was great. She provided a reader’s report with her impressions and suggestions and I really loved her in-line comments that showed how she was reacting to the story in real-time, which is super useful for me as a writer. Highly recommend!
Alexia’s report was thorough and helpful, and she answered some additional questions I had (if this book was more or less setting me up for the next in the series). More than that, though, she really ‘got’ what I was trying to do with the character and her arc, which made me feel good about my story *and* helped give me feedback that really targeted what I was going for. Would definitely consider working with her again.
An author’s dream beta reader, for sure! I searched for honesty, and that’s exactly what I got with bookishends. She caught onto some errors that even a professional copy editor I previously hired had missed. Her comments made me laugh, yet also motivated me to polish certain areas to make my book a better reading experience. Everything was also done in a timely manner. Highly recommend!
