Testimony from Jodie Orton

I am an unpublished author and when I recently put out a request for beta readers on Twitter, Mandi was kind enough to offer. She promptly read my manuscript and provided an in-depth review. She initially gave a summary of the novel before moving onto an examination of other aspects including tone, point of view and vocabulary, structural elements including setting, and characterisation. She then explored whether the primary elements of a thriller had been covered, before looking at aspects of the plot. She finished the report by offering a further critical review of the novel overall.

I found the feedback extremely detailed and helpful, enabling me to make improvements to my manuscript prior to submission to literary agents. Mandi was very kind in her feedback while offering an honest review of my work which I fully appreciated, and would not hesitate to use her as a beta reader again in the future.
