"I need to pay you more because you gave me more than a beta read. I still can’t believe you caught everything I intended with the book and had such good suggestions for holes to fill in." Kate Kimball
If you are a non-person of color, who wishes to tell a story from a Black person's point of view or write with a Black audience in mind and aren't sure your words (or your true message) will be offensive, please get a sensitivity read before you go any further in the publishing process.
A sensitivity read (up to $1,500) includes a thorough overview of your content from the perspective of a marginalized reader. (i.e., Black, female, etc.) You will receive detailed notes that target your intended audience, as opposed to who your perceived audience might be. If you said one thing, but meant another, let's be safe and err on the side of caution instead of playing it safe and not having it confirmed.
"Putting your manuscript into the hands of a professional editor can be nerve-wracking, especially if your story deals with sensitive issues as mine does. It can be a nerve-wracking process, wondering if you've 'gotten it right.' From the very beginning, Shaundale made that process less daunting. I wasn't looking for just any editor for my manuscript; I wanted someone who would not hold back and 'shoot straight' with me. Shaundale went above and beyond my expectations. Her eye for detail, professionalism, and keen insight helped my novel immeasurably. But it's really her love of stories, whether it's fiction or non-fiction, that drives Shaundale, and this passion, coupled with her positivity and encouragement that makes her a complete joy to work with."
