Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I analyze your work in ways that I would look at my roster's anthology submissions and magazine submissions. I will beta your stories too if you want me to do those - I will look at those more. Short stories are what I beta read more than anything so don't ask me to look at something over 100,000 words if it's something that's not yours outright. I've been a publisher since 2004 and have published a few writers who came from this circuit. Meaning I don't want to see a novel that's a copyrighted character unless you do Cthulhu Mythos and do in the Cthulhu Now timeline. The mid-range work is ideal and I love beta'ing short stories between 2400-6800 words as I am known to write this range as well as been published for it.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Being able to develop original concepts and characters. Come up with researched ideas. Having a vast knowledge of weird history and supernatural play up what I do strongly as a horror author. I am published and as a publisher so I will look at them in a way as I would look at the writers who are on roster. So you want me to beta be prepared to do original fiction crossing over because that's where I do rather well helping you build up original concepts and ideas.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness is looking at characters that don't belong to you and praising them if you did well on them. I tend to pick apart stories that are done quite well with characters that don't belong to them.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
HORROR - if you do well I will invite you to submit for a publication. If you can do original ideas and characters as strong as you can with fan fiction versions of horror. I will ask you to join me. 2400-6800 are what I will beta because this is the mid-range I am better known for myself. Meaning if you want me to beta - the next step is to be a legit published author. I will beta for those who want to go published. is where you can send the .doc for me to beta to publication - want me to beta be prepared to write original fiction.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
m/m slash, f/f don't ask me to look at these - or have me beta your fucking 100,000 word pieces that eventually would end up ripping me off. Poetry if short I will not beta but if you do epic see my preferred. Nothing over 24,000 that doesn't belong to you. If you want me to beta a novel it better be original or if you're looking to publish it at full length range if it's 180 pages in print - I will beta for you to get it formatted for a print medium.
