Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I will read anything with an "M" rating to check your grammar, punctuation, spelling, sentence structure and the like. I have been described as "tough but fair" in my editorial skills. Please do not send me your piece so raw that it will bleed when I go through it, in most word processing programs you have the ability of "spell check" which will also check your punctuation. Please use this before submitting to me. Do not put me on a "I need it tonight deadline" I will not accept your work. I do have a life outside the cyber universe and I expect you to respect that.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am a published writer of erotic fiction, with my second novel in the works right now with my publisher. I usually can read and edit a piece within a day unless circumstances of life prevent me from doing so.I ask that you be *extremely* clear with me what you are seeking when it comes to a sex scene, as I can go from vanilla to graphic if need be, I cannot stress enough to be clear what you are looking for.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I can get a little "over anal" when editing a piece and will tear it apart. I do not accept pieces that are so raw that they bleed because you didn't utilize spell check. I do not use text speak in my writing, and I expect you to do the same. It has it's place and it's not in a story/novel.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will beta anything with an "M" rating in the Terminator, Boondock Saints and Walking Dead universe. I will do *some* Twilight, and a smattering of Harry Potter. I am okay with hetero, femslash, menage trios.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I can't do M/M parings, while I have no problems with it in real life, I just can't wrap my head around it in print. I will not read anything written of a sexual nature by someone under the age of 18, as I feel it is not something they should be writing about at that age. Please do not ask this of me, and if I feel you are under that age trying to submit something rated "M" to me (and yes I can tell trust me) I will delete it and not send it back to you.
