Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, I am Kris Black.

I have been beta-reading on FF.Net for numerous years. I feel confident in my ability to read critically as I do have some experience as an editor of a small college newspaper. I like all of my comments to be constructive and encouraging and will do my best to ensure that your story is something that you can be proud to call your own. I can beta your whole story, one chapter, a part, multiple stories, anything that suits your needs.

I use Microsoft Word 2010 to beta, but I can use any word processor to fit your needs. I usually do all of my editing in read or in bubble comments on the side so you can see exactly any grammatical/spelling errors that I have corrected or any comments/suggestions that I may have. This way, you know exactly what I have done and then you can choose whether to accept any/all of the changes that were made or suggested. I also usually make overall comments in red at the end of the document or I include them in the email returning the edited chapter/document.

If you would like me as a beta on your project, please feel free to PM me with the following: a summary of the story, which category it is (Sailor Moon, Twilight, etc.), rating you intend it to be, and which coupling it is. I will get back to you as soon as possible with my email address requesting the first chapter.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel at finding loose ends in plots that haven't been tied up, ends that don't meet, and inconsistency. I am also pretty competant with grammar, so lots of help from my end on that issue. I am a stickler for proper formatting.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My spelling isn't atrocious, but I do have some problems there once in a while - but as far as that is concerned, I have an excellent spell-checker.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories with an excellent plot-line that keeps me guessing. I have read so many books over the course of my life that anything new and exciting is always welcome! I like romance. hidden agendas and villains who are so three dimensional you don't love them despite their villainy. Bad boys are pretty much what I exist for when writing.

Keep in mind that these are not necessary, just things that I enjoy. If you want me to beta your story, feel free to drop me a line anyway.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I do not like stories where the original personality of the character is altered to a point where the only likeness they share is the same name and face. I like stories that have a steady flow and do not jump quickly from one thing to another - but I can help with that as a beta, so no worries.
