Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello there! After beginning the work of "La Diva Assassina", I've decided that I would like to add my services of Beta reading as well. I like to get down to the nitty-gritty and I'm very picky when it comes to grammatical errors, so be assured that your chapters will be in the best of hands. I'm offering five different Beta packages at the moment. If you would be so kind as to include what package you are interested in, I'll let you know how much time it'll take. I've decided to add this into my profile, because when authors ask me to Beta, they sometimes don't know how involved they want me to be, and then come back in the end and ask me to go through everything again and be more involved. This way, I'll know upfront exactly what you want, and it'll be easier for me to fit everything into my schedule...

-*-*-*-*-*-

*Package #1A, The Basics: Basic grammar and spelling check for those who would prefer *absolutely no help* in characterization, plot settings, etc., but have most of their grammar and such in control. This is more of a minor fix-a quick sweep to guarantee that everything you have written is perfect.

-*-*-*-*-*-

Package #1B, The Basics Extended: For those who need extensive help with spelling and grammar for their current chapters, or for those who haven't used a Beta in their previous chapters, this is probably the one for you. I'll go in and spend normally a full weekend editing only your chapters both old and new, until they're perfect for reading.

-*-*-*-*-*-

* Package #2, Beta Continuation: This is for those who are on the verge of finishing a fanfic, and have had Betas help them in the past, but now need a new Beta for whatever reason. I normally read what's been written so far, in oder to gain a good feel for the plot and characters, and then do my job, and become however involved you need me to be to assist you in finishing.

-*-*-*-*-*-

*Package #3, Chapter-by-Chapter, Full Analysis: Grammar, spelling check AND character/plot analysis. Send me one chapter at a time, and I'll deliver as soon as possible. This is normally my favorite package, because then I can get to know the story as it starts from the beginning, and work at a steady pace with you, so readers will enjoy a flawless and perfect fanfic. I do require for the first chapter to be ready for read-over and revision before agreeing to take on the role as Beta.

-*-*-*-*-*-

Package #4, Old Stories Gone Beta: This package is for those of you who have written a fantastic fanfic, completed it, left it alone for a while, and then decide that you'd like it to be revised and looked at by a Beta. Basically like Package #2, I'll work with you on when you'd like everything, and once I receive all of the chapters in bulk (preferably a zipped folder), I'll spend a whole week only working on your revisions.

-*-*-*-*-*-

***Please note: When I Beta, I prefer being emailed all documents for Beta-ing-I do not use DocX here on . Please PM me in order to receive an email address. You can send me either one chapter at a time, or you can send me a bulk email (depending on your package choice) with all of your chapters in a *zipped* file. Thanks so much, and I look forward to working with everyone!

Ever yours,

Soprano in Shadow

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, Adding detail, Smoothing through conversations. Adding depth to characters. Complete honesty. You get the picture.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My only main weakness is timeliness. If you submit your chapters after a certain time, then keep in mind that you might not get your chapter back as soon as you would like.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love lengthy stories. I normally only read fanfic (not Beta) that have a minimum of 60,000 words. I have no problem with M rated stories at all. I also only prefer Beta-reading fanfics that are going to have a lot of plot. I'm not comfortable with reading multiple chapters of one shot citrusness. I'm a reader who has depth, and expects depth. Feel free to submit!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anything rated cleaner than T... I'm not a fan of K's at all. I'll also be open to longer fics. I'm open to negotiating on one shots, but I'm not really a fan of them at all. Also, no PoVs or slash, please!
