Behest Indie Novelist Services (Miscellaneous)

My goal at Behest Indie Novelist Services is to help authors on a low budget to iron out the glitches in their manuscript and to make the best possible version of their novel available for readers to enjoy.

I offer four types of service:

Proofreading
Addressing typos, spelling mistakes, misused homonyms, missing or repeated words etc.

Beta Reading
Providing general feedback and critique on the storyline and characters, as well as addressing issues such as:
Are the characters, their actions and reactions realistic?
Are there plot holes or scenes that don't make sense?
Is the ending of the book rushed?
Are there are any story threads that are left hanging?

Advice and Guidance on All Things British
As a British person I can help non-British authors whose books are set in the UK. I can advise on areas such as vocabulary, names, geography, food and drink, nature, culture, forms of address or any other aspects of British life (past and present) that you would like to know about.

Anachronistic Vocabulary Correction
Writing a novel that takes place in years gone by has the particular challenge of accidental anachronisms appearing. If you’re writing a historical novel, I will help you by identifying anachronistic words and phrases, and will suggest alternatives that are more in keeping with the era in which the book is set.
