I reached out to Steph Huddleston Writing while searching for beta readers for my partial manuscript of a science fiction novel. Steph’s critique of my manuscript exceeded my expectations in every way. She provided in-depth feedback on characterisation, plot, and readability. It is clear that she is a reader who is familiar with the genre, which is very important when hiring a sci-fi beta reader. As a new writer, the early feedback is invaluable, and I highly recommend Steph Huddleston Writing.
