  • From the very first e-mail, Arina immediately put me at ease. She wrote with warmth and consideration, saying how excited she was to help answer my questions and make sure the book I published was as good as it could possibly be. I never got a vibe of being evaluated, judged, or spoken down to. It was all about how she could help me, as a writer, improve my craft, and the book, so readers of all stripes would feel seen and understood.

  • Arina’s feedback was sincere, specific, and thoroughly considered—she was unafraid to delve into problem areas and give context to her suggestions, and encouraged communication and follow-up questions. Her insight helped me turn my book into something much more nuanced and it was a pleasure working with her.

  • Arina went above and beyond for me as a beta reader. She gave great insight into the characters, pacing, flow, dialogue, and setting, explaining clearly and with enthusiasm what she loved and also giving helpful constructive criticism where necessary. It’s obvious that she’s done this many times and is skilled and passionate about her work as a beta reader. I would 100% suggest Arina’s beta reading services to other writers!
