THE "DUOLOGY" PACKAGE:

I used both Taylor and Sarah as beta readers, at staggered times, and I believe it was the most valuable decision I could have made for my book. I had the expertise of one reader, was able to draft and revise based on what we talked about, and then got new feedback.


Getting staggered feedback meant getting specific help with things, and shaped my book into the best version it could be. My finished book wouldn't be what it is without the help and guidance of the ladies at the Beta House Collective and I'm grateful to them.


I plan on using their Duology package for all of my future projects, that's how valuable it was to me!

BRAINSTORMING POWER HOUR:

Before approaching my next draft, I booked a brainstorming sesh with Sarah. I had worked with her previously to get feedback on my manuscript so I knew she’d be the best person to act as a sounding board.

Sarah did not disappoint. She came prepared with ideas that helped me shift from overwhelmed to clarity. It was also a lot of fun to chat with someone who knew my story and characters as well as I do.

 

I would highly recommend booking this service if you’re struggling to make decisions about your story. Thanks to Sarah I feel confident to tackle the next draft.

BRAINSTORMING POWER HOUR:

If you've received feedback through the Beta House Collective, I highly, highly recommend you use the brainstorming option.

 

I talked with Taylor and was able to expand on ideas and things I've been struggling with in a huge way. I walked away from the session with a complete plan of what I need to go to improve my story moving forward.

 

I wish people understood how useful these brainstorming sessions are! If you received feedback through Taylor or Sarah, use them for brainstorming! They are incredibly helpful, come with really specific ideas, and are so kind.
