Author Services

The Howling Turtle is now offering publicity services and beta reading for authors! 

The publicity services include:
  • Contacting bloggers and soliciting reviews/other promotional posts.
  • Setting up blog tours.
  • Helping authors expand their social media reach (setting up Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr accounts).
  • Posting for authors on their social media platforms.
  • Contacting bookstores/book events and set up signings.
I have prior experience working as an author's assistant and have been a book blogger for over five years.

Publicity Service Price Rates:

Just soliciting for reviews or promotional posts: $10/hr

Soliciting for reviews and/or other services: $15/hr

Publicity Service 10 Hour Packages:

Just soliciting for reviews or promotional posts: $90 for 10 hours

Soliciting for reviews and/or other services: $135 for 10 hours

Beta reading is a great way to get feedback on your manuscript before you send it out into the world. It does not deal with grammatical editing (although, if there is a consistent mistake, I might point that out) but deals more with big picture things looking at characterization or catching plot holes. I am also very happy to work with writers to look for particular things they are interested in getting feedback on!

$0.002 per word (with a $10 minimum). 

For example, a 20,000 word novella would be $40, a 50,000 word novel would be $100, and a 5,000 word short story would be $10.  I am also happy to read works less than 5,000 words, but they would all be at a fixed price of $10.

If either of these services appeals to you, please email me at
I conduct all my payments through Paypal and will need the invoice to be paid before I begin my work.
