"I have been lucky enough to have Sharon beta several of my books, and I have been more than happy! Not only does she pose excellent questions that I haven't thought about, but she also makes great comments and really gives me a feel for what works and what doesn't. On top of that, she catches a lot of typos I miss! I hope to keep her as part of the Amaranthine team for many books to come!"

"When you’re a writer, the devil truly is in the details. Plot inconsistencies, sentence structure, repetition, incorrect punctuation—getting these details wrong can negatively impact the reader’s experience. Sharon’s eagle eye caught irregularities which would have embarrassed this author no end if they had appeared in the finished product, and her advice helped me develop both plot and characters. She was a pleasure to work with and I recommend her with no reservations."

"Sharon Stogner has an excellent eye for plot and story, and her skills were invaluable in the development of my paranormal romance, Storm Warrior (Montlake Publishing, 2013). Like a conductor discerning a discordant note in a symphony, she is able to put her finger on a character reaction or relationship that isn't in sync. As an author, my perspective is sometimes skewed by being too close to my work in progress -- her questions and suggestions were spot-on, and often got me back on track. Sharon also has the perfect personality to work with a new author: she is friendly and easy to work with, and truly cares about the project she's working on. Plus, her rates are affordable. 

In addition to natural talent, Sharon brings to the table her experience as a reviewer of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, horror, science fiction and fantasy, plus graphic novels and movies of similar category. This, plus a lifelong love of reading , makes her an ideal candidate to vet a project in these genres. I highly recommend her."


Daphne Award-winning author of the dark urban fantasy/PRN series Paladin Warriors and YA series Hunger Chronicles and The Pandora Trilogy.

"Sharon is my go-to girl for BETA reading. She has the ability to keep the whole picture in mind while reading a manuscript, even in series work, and I always receive thought provoking feedback from her. All the books she's critiqued for me have turned out to be better stories because of Sharon!"

"Sharon Stogner is an outstanding editor. Her innate sense of story and attention to detail make the perfect combination for a trusted review of my work. She's comprehensive, but not intrusive, and so very easy to work with. I highly recommender her."

Author of the Dystopian The Alchemy series 
Working with Sharon on Shattered was a fantastic experience! I write very complicated plots with many characters, so having someone that was able to spot the inconsistencies was invaluable to me. She has a unique gift for spotting the tiniest errors.Not only did she tell me what I was doing wrong, she told me what I was doing right. This type of direction and input helped me write the best book possible. I plan to have a very long working relationship with her.

Sharon has been my beta reader from book one. She is very detailed and asks all the right questions, making comments where needed to help keep the stories flowing. For me, Sharon does an excellent job in keeping the plot lines straight and remembers from one story to the next what has happened within the series. She has kept me in line on several of my stories reminding me of something that happened with a certain character. 

I love Sharon and would highly recommend her work at any time!
