Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a demanding reader. This means I have high expectations when reading a story. I require good grammar, believable plots and staying true to the era in which you write, among other things.

When reviewing a story, I will be honest with the writer. Sometimes, this might come across as harsh, but it's not. You must be able to accept constructive critcism in order to become a better writer. You don't have to like it, of course. I rarely do when I'm subjected to it.

If I take the time to read your story, please take the time to run spellcheck before submitting it.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel at dialogue and setting the scene. Atmosphere is one of my specialties. I'm good with grammar, spelling and verb agreement.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness as a beta reader is punctuation when involving colons, semicolons, etc. I don't always get it right. The same pertains to my writing. Also, I sometimes struggle with finding the right balance of emotions vs. mechanics.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta stories set in universes that I currently write, Victorian London, Sound of Music, My Fair Lady or steampunk. However, I am open to most stories.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not a fan of slash, bondage or explicity sexual solely for the purpose of being sexual.
