Beta Reading
I will get back to you within two to three weeks (depending on your word count) with a detailed four-page beta report about character, style, plot structure, inconsistencies, voice, tone, dialogue and description, as well as answer any additional questions you may have. You can also send me a beta report format of your own choice, and I'll answer that as well.


Editing
This involves heavy proofreading as well as copy and line editing. Developmental editing can also be done on request for a premium charge. Rewriting of scenes will be done ONLY if you require me to do so. The voice of your manuscript will be maintained. This takes anywhere between three to four weeks, depending on your word count.

Both services will take four to five weeks, depending on your word count.

Have a lovely day, Geeks. Can't wait to hear from you! :)

  1. Swati was most helpful in beta reading my manuscript. She was encouraging and honest, giving valuable feedback on tone, character development, plot pacing and so much more. She was also prompt and friendly to work with. I'm definitely working with her again.

  2. Swati is a careful proofreader, a fantastic editor and an exceptional talented writer. She does far more than 99.9% of other editors and proofreaders. You may end up paying twenty times as much for an editor but your money won't buy this astonishing and unexpected attention to detail, meticulousness and dedication to your writing, all the incredible things that you get with Swati. She is absolutely first class. She also provides an unexpectedly thorough analysis of your work and will tell you honestly what's wrong with it, why she liked it or what she ;liked, and what she didn't and even furnish some well-founded reasons why she didn't like a particular aspect of your work. For me Swati was a pleasant discovery in the world of mediocrities and disappointments, I love what she did for my story and I am most definitely going to work with her in the future.

  3. Big thanks to Swati for her fast turnaround and excellent beta report on my fantasy novel. Given the low cost, I was surprised by her speed, accuracy and attention to detail, all delivered with honesty and professionalism. Money well spent, and look forward to working together again.

  4. Dedicated, insightful and constructive, Swati is by far one of the best beta readers I've had. When you give your manuscript to a beta, you expect truth. It does no good to be told you have a great story when you in fact do not. Swati is constructive in her criticism; she's upfront but kind, and gives you helpful alternatives. She lets you know what she loves and what she hates and why. Whilst reading her comments on the manuscript, you can't help but feel that she is really into the story as if she were right there with you. Her editorial skills are wonderful, pointing out errors where you didn't see them. She also has a charming personality and a wonderful sense of adventure when it comes to reading. I want to keep her to myself, but I suppose I will have to share her!

  5. I've just finished working with Swati for the first time. She beta- and proof-read my manuscript, and I've already signed up for another. I loved her helpful feedback, her attention to detail, and her fun side. Worth every penny.

  7. Swati is amazing! I just worked with her for the first time and I will absolutely be calling her for my next book. I hired her for all three services - beta reading, editing, and proofreading. She did an incredible job. She is detail oriented, loves books, understands what readers need, and is a consummate professional. I recommend Swati to all indie authors. She will help you present a polished manuscript you can be proud of and it will make your readers happy!

  8. Swati was very fast on delivery with her beta report! I definitely recommend hiring her. She was very very thorough on what worked and what didn't. And! She had no problem with follow up questions which is something that is very important for authors. Answers to questions. This is a very good service and I will be returning again.

  10. Swati did a beta read of my 74,000 manuscript over a weekend - amazing! Also, she updated me via email as to her progress. Swati's comments helped me look at my characters, scenes, plot as a reader would, which turned my thinking around to develop stronger characters, scenes, etc. She provided detailed suggestions that made sense.
    I recommend Swati!

  11. I am so pleased with Swati's work. She was quick and thorough, catching all my mistakes. She also provided insight to areas where my story needed some improvement.
    I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs an editor, proof reader or just a new set of eyes for their manuscript.
    I will definitely be using her services again!

  12. I returned once again to hire Swati to read the remainder of my novel; I was not disappointed in the least. With her feedback, I was able to spot various points I could enhance within my novel to bring it even closer to perfection. Swati is very insightful and open; she helps clarify much and offers great responses on proposed solutions to any errors. For my future sequels, I will be returning here for a beta read.

  13. Swati did a great job on beta reading and editing my novel. She gave her honest opinion and it helped polish my novel into publishing shape. She's very easy to work with and replies to emails quickly. She works very quickly and I will be using her services again.

  14. I requested Swati's Beta-reading, proofreading, and editing services for a book I had already self-published at the end of April 2016. The feedback I was provided with was excellent. She provided good and helpful feedback to take my book to the next level, and the turnaround time was only a few days. I am incredibly happy with the services I received, not to mention the price was the best I've seen for the quality of service I received. I will definitely be sending my next book to Swati for more of her appreciated feedback in the future.

  16. I hired Swati to beta read, edit and proofread my first novel. She did an excellent job! She kept me updated throughout the process providing feedback, both issues to work on and what she liked, at close to 25% intervals. She was so easy to work with, professional but very friendly. Her prices are unbelievably reasonable for the services she provides. I would definitely recommend her and will be using her again when I finish my next book!

  17. Swati took a look at my book pitch package and made some excellent suggestions. Her observations on my first two chapters helped me see them in a fresh way and lead me to make them more streamlined. Her answers to my follow up questions were well thought out and detailed. She's prompt, professional, and has very reasonable prices.

  18. Swati's work is constructively critical, yet encouraging. Her approach to editing is exceptional, as she followed a beta reader outline that provided very thorough feedback.

    Swati's copy and content editing are just as superb. Her attention to detail is like no other editor I've seen. She is fair in pricing for the length of manuscript.

    Overall, Swati conducted herself professionally, maintained editor/client confidentiality, and replied to my e-mails in a prompt fashion.

  19. Swati is quick to respond, very professional, and extremely thorough. She got through my 112k manuscript in a timely fashion, was willing to answer any questions I had about her thoughts as a beta reader, and I'm completely satisfied with her proofreading and editing. I look forward to working with her again on the second book.

  20. Swati was wonderful to work with! I had worked with her previously when she reviewed my books for her blog, and I always found her reviews to be fair and constructive. I was happy to learn she was now editing. I am so pleased with the attention to detail in the edits made on my book. I will certainly be hiring her again in the future!

  21. Swati was very helpful and encouraging in her beta read for my YA novel. She was able to pinpoint the things that are working best and where I need more explanation in my world-building.

  22. It was great working with Swati. She examined my work from multiple angles and provided me with new insights. It's hard for a writer to remove themselves from their work enough to see what's working and what's not, and Swati provided that much needed extra pair of eyes. I highly recommend her services and will work with her again in the future.

  23. A friend referred me to Swati, and I'm so glad she did.

    I ended up hiring her for beta reading services. She was remarkably timely, efficient, and sharp. Her insight and comments were spot on and, more than that, her contributions have been invaluable to ensuring my book will be the best it can be once I publish.

    I certainly made the right choice when I hired her, and I'm looking forward to using her services for the next book as well.

  24. I am so grateful I stumbled across Swati.

    She was absolutely incredible. I had her copy edit my 130,000-word manuscript, and she completed it very quickly. Her critiques and suggestions were fantastic.

    I will definitely work with her again.

    Thanks again, Swati. :)

  25. Oh.
    My.
    God.

    I cannot rave enough about Swati and her work. I stumbled across her ad on Goodreads and could not be happier with her work. Her editing services are fantastic, catching the tiniest little missing comma to tense agreement and beyond. Her comments and critiques are frank but amazingly encouraging and always justified. She is my first beta reader, and has set the bar incredibly high! Thank you so much!!!

  26. Swati edited a novel for me. She addressed grammar, syntax, mechanics, continuity, character development and plot. She is a meticulous, imaginative and passionate editor who digs deeply into the text to expose problems and offer solutions. She works in a timely fashion and her rates are very reasonable. I highly recommend her for all aspects of editing.

  27. Swati was a fantastic beta reader!! She gave frequent updates and her notes were constructive, yet kind. She gave insight to some things that other betas hadn't picked up on, which was extremely helpful to me. I will definitely be using her again in the future!!

  28. I hired Swati to be my beta reader. She was excellent in providing me useful information in sections of my book. She noted on the paragraphs her thoughts and feelings as well as any confusions in the series of events in the story. Her notes showed me if I was on target, (she noted funny when the chapter was funny) and where to improve the sections that were confusing. Also, she compiled a detailed summary of the plot, pacing, and characters.
    I will definitely hire Swati again for my next book.

  29. Swati is an awesome beta reader and editor. I hired her for both for my YA novel. She breaks the book up into quarters to show progress and to give you time to focus on her thoughts and feelings on that portion of the novel before going on to the next. She's very good at catching things that you are not able to catch and she has very good suggestions on how to fix problem areas in your work.

  30. It was my first time working with a beta-reader/editor and it was a great experience. She kept in constant contact so I never had to wonder when the project would be done, and she also did not provide any false expectations. Her professional opinions are very well thought out, and I could tell that she deliberately read the novel as a reader and an editor.

    Thank you, Swati! We'll definitely work together again!

  31. Swati beta read for me and not only did she keep me aware as she read it (sending updates about every quarter the way through with comments embedded in the doc), but also provided an excellently detailed report at the end. I highly recommend her as a beta reader.

  32. Swati rocks! She recently did a beta read for my current WIP and gave excellent advice and very helpful notes from a readers (and writers) point of view throughout the story. I would highly recommend her to anyone putting the finishing touches on their work of art. Thanks Swati!! Jenni Lynn

  33. Swati did a good job on my non-fiction/humor beta read. She was prompt, professional and great with email communications. She gave useful comments throughout, things that my professional NYC editor had missed! She also gave good suggestions and insights I had not thought of before. I am so happy I hired her. I would use her again. Highly recommended.

  34. Swati is awesome, I just worked with her, she did a beta read and editing on my novel, and she did an amazing job. I will be working with her again. If your looking for a good editor, Swati is the person you need to contact. You won't regret it.

  35. My novelist's protagonist is a female around the same age as Swati, hence a friend who had read my manuscript recommended her to me, for beta-reading, and I signed up immediately. Swati was honest to admit, after reading my sample chapters, that I need not sign up for her editing services, but the few errors she had pointed out demonstrated how meticulous she was in her reading and critiquing.
    I liked her process of working: reading and editing 25 percent of the novel every week and providing me feedback. But what blew me away was the 4-5 page detailed beta report that she sent me in the end. The best part of course was her assuring me that the female protagonist spoke and acted like a female her age, not a male talking in a female character's voice. As a bonus, she pointed out another female character whose arc too, unknown to me, had developed well.
    It's clear from the way the novel ends that there would be a sequel, and even before I start writing it, I know I will reach out to Swati to beta-read and edit it.
