Sunset Reading



Congratulations!  You've finished a piece of writing; a short story, maybe a novel or a non-fiction book, and now you need a reader's perspective.  That's where I come in.  :)


I will read your complete work.

do not edit nor proof-read; I am here to provide you feedback from a reader's perspective.


I will provide honest, constructive, and supportive feedback from a reader's perspective.


A written report focusing on: characterization and motivation, plot holes and inconsistencies, credibility of dialogue, anachronisms, plot and conflict, developmental insights, and overall impression.

Open Book

What I read

Fiction (adult), creative non-fiction, and non-fiction, between "one hundred" and "one hundred thousand" words.

do not read: fantasy, paranormal, dystopia, nor poetry.

What I Charge

I charge 1 cent per word, that's it.

"Bette's wonderful beta reading of my most recent novel, The Life of Gronsky, was indispensable. She pointed out several factual inconsistencies, especially in a portion of the novel that occurs in post-war Winnipeg... so her specific knowledge was useful but also her, dare I say, occasionally effusive enjoyment of the book was helpful and supportive."

Bill Englesson, author of The Life of Gronsky
