Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader I act like a developing editor. I will always correct grammar and punctuation. I like to think that I have two beta/editing levels: Nice & Light or Straight & Bleeding. br /br /br /br /br /

Nice and Light will leave you with corrected grammar and punctuation, along with a few pointers here and there with story development. br /br /br /br /br /

Straight and Bleeding means that I tell you exactly what I think and I edit (red text makes it bloody) the shit out of it. I help you with story development as well. Some folks really don't care for the straight and bleeding, but I do it only to ensure a better /br /br /br /br /

In a professional sense, I have three non-fiction books published. I have a number of screenplays (not picked up by anyone) written. I am currently working on a non-fiction history book, so sometimes I'll be on hiatus due to that project.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I love being a beta/editor for people. I'm honest and will always give you a reason why I suggest things.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I really hate it when someone simply sends me a story without any sort of introduction of themselves and simply asking: do you have time to be my beta? If you do this, I probably won't give your work a second /br /br /br /br /

If you can't seem to pick up on some of the basics (proper spelling of place names or character names, etc) I may very well stop helping you out. When I read a story and "Barbara" is repeatedly being spelled "Barbra" or "Barbera" it interrupts my flow of reading. You don't want to do that to your readers.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer Labyrinth, Beetlejuice, and Sherlock stories. You can ask me to beta read other stuff, but if I don't know the fangroup I will tell you.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not familiar with any anime. Blatant smut with no imagination simply makes me roll my eyes. Just don't be boring.
