|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have done some beta reading before for authors who specifically requested it and I believe that they were quite pleased with the results. I have only ever done Harry Potter stories, but I am more than willing to try something new.
I do have a few expectations of the authors that send me their work. I am aware that it can be hard to meet the demands of your readers, that is getting chapters written on time, but I still don't expect your work to be sloppy and impossible to understand. I understand that sometimes you will not be able to check your work, and I am happy to fix it through and through for you, but not if it happens all the time. I also expect authors to treat me with the utmost respect as this is not only what you will get from me, but I am doing this for absolutely no money whatsoever, it is just purely for enjoyment.
My betareading style is one that is probably fairly common. When i get a chapter to edit, i start straight away and I finish it in one sitting, no matter hoe big it is.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I would like to think that I have a number of skills when it comes to betareading. One of these is my extreme attention to detail. Even when i read through something quickly, I pick up just about every mistake in the section. However I won't pick up all mistakes, and this is why i read through each chapter 3-5 times.
Another betareading skill of mine is my love for reading and writing. Throughout my short life I have read many books, and this has developed my reading and writing skills much earlier than that in other people. This also means that I tend to be better at spelling than other people my age, which helps a great deal when it comes to betareading.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
One weakness of mine that I can think of when it comes to betareading is that I live in Australia. This means that I spell some words differently to people in countries such as America, but this doesn't mean that you won't be able to tell what the word is. It usually just means that an "s" might be substitued for a "z".
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would by far prefer to beta Harry Potter stories as they are my passion and I know alot to do with the original series, meaning that I could even correct things to do with the original series that are incorrect. However, this is not to say that I will only beta Harry Potter. Another series I would prefer to beta is CHERUB, but to be quite honest, I really don't care what I beta.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
One thing I will absolutely refuse to beta is comic books stories, more particularly Manga. I simply cannot stand them!
