Muslim Book Reviewer Services

Muslim Book Reviewers is a collective of four book reviewers who have joined forces to offer BETA READING and SENSITIVITY READING SERVICES.  

When you hire us, you don't just get one person's feedback on your manuscript. Instead, you get four experienced, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic perspectives before you publish.  

Each member of the MBR team brings with them unique skills and their experiences in writing, editing, publishing, and reviewing Muslim books.

BETA READING:


Beta reading is the final step before publication. Alpha readers read early manuscripts and help shape the formation of the text, the story, the presentation, and the development. Beta readers are the last set of outside eyes (not including the author and publisher) before a book goes for printing. We look for specific errors of continuity, illustration accuracy, illustration and text alignment, target audience reception, and overall specific fixable literary mistakes.  Books need to have already been professionally edited before seeking our services.

SENSITIVITY READING:

We also serve as sensitivity readers to help ensure accurate representation, portrayal of

Muslims, Islamic teachings, and some cultural perceptions. Our team specializes in ​​Pakistani, Desi, South African, Albanian, Balkan, Syrian, Middle Eastern, American, and Canadian cultures.  We have linguistic knowledge of Arabic, Albanian, Urdu, and English.

PLEASE NOTE:

● This service is NOT an editing service and the MBR will NOT do line edits or rewrite words of the manuscript.

● This service does NOT take the place of a scholar verifying and approving Islamic content and representation.

● This service should NOT be sought until the following steps have been taken:

○ Manuscript has been through multiple revisions

○ Manuscript has been professionally edited for grammar and content

○ Illustrations have been completed and are just awaiting final approval

○ Nonfiction concepts have been sourced
