Structural edits and beta reading
Structural editing and beta reading services
I extend structural editing and beta reading services. My speciality genres are romance and fantasy but I'll happily look at your manuscription if it falls into another category. I'm afraid I don't read dark fiction or horror.
To see my rates and the types of structural edits I do, please look at my service package on Fivver. I will also beta read, which is a light structural edit of the book and offered as the "Basic" package of a structural edit. Prices are on Fivver.
"I had a manuscript that just felt lifeless, like I'd beaten the life out of it and I could not objectively see what needed to be fixed. I asked Renée to beta read it and give her opinion. Renée took painstaking effort to read my manuscript, carefully examine the style and prose, and gave valuable feedback on whichever aspects of the work I asked for. I was most concerned with readability and continuity; not only did I get feedback on that, Renée was so thorough that I got much, MUCH more! After Renée's review, I went to work on revisions and I feel like its a brand new novel. I will not stop singing Renée's praises; she's earned them!" -A.P.
Renée Gendron is a great beta reader. She approaches each story with the writer's best interests at heart. She points out vague passages and nudges tangents back on the main line again. As the passages become clearer and more focused, the author's purpose shines more brightly. KJ Cartmell, author of the teen love story The Gospel of Thomas, and the Liam Wren series. HPFF and HPFT.
