Hi, my name is Jess.
I’ve been beta reading for a while (mostly via Facebook groups and Scribophile) and would like to expand my horizons. I’m good for any new authors just starting their journeys because I’m trying to build up more of a portfolio and online following. I can assist with beta reading, arc reading, and proofreading. If you want to see examples of my writing, check out my blog (listed above). I always read the first 3 chapters FOC and can provide notes outlining my thoughts.
My favourite genres are crime/thriller, horror and sci-fi (the genetic engineering kind), and fantasy. I’m not a fan of romance or anything too spicy, sorry!
My most recent reads:
- Man, fuck this house by Brian Asman
- My sister, the serial killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite
- What big teeth by Rose Szabo
- My heart is a chainsaw by Stephen Graham Jones
At college I studied English Language and Literature, Psychology, Philosophy and Fine Art. I received a degree in Graphic Design & Advertising at the University of Greenwich in 2010. Since then I have worked as a designer and marketer for over a decade, across a range of industries and media – My work has been featured on MOMO TV in Taiwan and ITV fixers in the UK. During this time I’ve also worked as a content, copy and product writer. My strengths are in writing, editing, social media management, and email marketing.
Side note: If you are looking for a graphic designer and have budget constraints, I’m happy to assist FOC where possible, including providing feedback for cover designs and assisting with layouts/fonts.
