Whether it's for your book or you're looking for a production assistant, assistant director. We're here to help, learn and grow.
We offer a specific beta reading service for authors. It's important to note we are not professional editors, but we will simply read your writing project as a reader. With that we will check your grammar, the flow of your story and provide feedback, it's all up to you what you need. You can request the beta reading service through the contact form. From there on we can discuss the details. We work through Fiverr. Due to our own experiences this beta reading service is offered at an author-friendly price.
It's important to know we can only offer the beta reading service for a writing project that falls within our range of interests and expertise. Therefore we only offer this beta reading service in the following genres of fiction: General Fiction, Historical Fiction, Romance and a mix of genres. We don't do horror, science-fiction, detective and so on. If your writing project is a genre that isn't mentioned here, you can fill out the contact form and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Our Take On Feedback
Yarrow House Publishing believes in proper feedback. We have experienced it ourselves as well: you receive feedback that isn't at all useful to you. Simply stating if it's bad, not highlighting the strong points of your writing project. Not even providing you with some tips, only giving a one-way advice that reads: stop writing. That's not the job of a beta reader, nor is it what feedback should be.
It's important to receive feedback you can learn and grow from. Good and bad. Getting good feedback with some tips on how to make it better, information how the reader reads it and understands your story. You can receive bad feedback in a way you can learn from and improve your writing with.
What true bad feedback means to us? Feedback that it isn't at all providing you with useful information. No single tip, no single piece of information on how your romantic novel is read and also not highlighting what is great about your story.
For us, feedback means that it's explained what is seen, how it can be approved, what is good about it and what makes it not work. Feedback shouldn't be just an opinion, it should come with more than that. There should be looked at the story from a reader's point of view, but also with a certain expertise: how can you make it better? We may be able to give you some tips on your writing project. But again, we're no professional editors, we simply read your writing project as a reader.
This service applies to everyone needing or requiring a helping hand. Whether you need some help writing your story, because you struggle with writer's block or you need help in the entire process of an on-screen production, think: a TV-Series or an (independent movie). It's important to know that we firmly stick by our House Style guide and our formula, meaning we do not focus on certain genres that includes: science-fiction, horror, detective and particular dramatic works. Check out our About page to learn more about our formula.
