My rates are dependent on hours spent on the work, and the level of sensitivity reading that I do on it.
All payments will be made to my Ko-Fi.

I am currently OPEN for sensitivity reading requests.
As a beta/sensitivity reader, my purpose is not to directly endorse your work. Please do not misuse my name as a shield against criticism - I am not a get out of jail free card.
An important thing to note is that my experiences are not universal. If you have requested the services of a different beta/sensitivity reader and they happen to disagree with any feedback I have given, I kindly request that you leave me out of it. My purpose is to help you as much as I am able to, not to hash through disagreements with other beta/sensitivity reader colleagues.
