Testimonials

  • “Need a thorough beta read, one that will provide the best assessment of your manuscript? Then look no further, contact Jodie. her in depth and very thorough beta read is just what the “script doctor” ordered. She provides a well thought out list of check points and areas for improvement that guides her assessment, that in turn gives the author a check list as to what need amending. No author wants to be published and then not be ready for the big stage…so Jodie will help you over that hump. I have no hesitation in recommending her.”

  • “When writing, it’s not always easy to find reliable and quick beta support to give honest critiques. I was thrilled to have found Jodie who was quick and responsive to the needs of my manuscript. Jodie was a fantastic support to me as I embarked upon writing my second novel. She was able to provide prompt and succinct advice throughout the process and enabled me to truly view my novel more objectively. She offered constructive and solid advice on many elements such as characterization, plot, consistencies and pacing. Overall, I’d definitely recommend Jodie. She is clearly an avid reader and is able to elegantly direct improvement elements, strengths and weaknesses of a story. Her final report was detailed and thorough and gave me the direction I needed to improve my book and strengthen my characters. An easy ten out of ten. Thank you Jodie!”

  • I asked Jodie to review my book as I liked the honesty, content and thoroughness of the other reviews that she’d written on her blog. When my review came through, I was really impressed with the detail. Jodie broke my two hundred very short stories up into four sets of fifty and, for each set, she summarized the main genres and highlighted the stories that had particularly resonated with her. I would highly recommend Jodie’s reviewing services and won’t hesitate to ask her to review future books that I might write

  • Jodie Cook has reviewed a number of my novels. Her writing style is crisp and clear and her reviews are thoughtful, insightful, and show a very good understanding of plot development, pace, character development, story arc and themes, among other story elements. Her reviews are well-written and very thorough, detailing development of the story from beginning to end, without giving away too much.

    Jodie also posts her reviews on a number of websites, including her own website, along with cover images to give the reader a visual perspective of what they might expect with your novel. The role book reviews play in book promotion and sales continues to increase. If you are looking for a book reviewer who will give you a fair, honest and unbiased review of your novel, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jodie Cook. She does an excellent job.
