| hope for rent 's Beta Reader Profile
Author has written 1 story | Fantasy.
β : hope for rent is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I (as a beta-reader) tend to go through the document and just fix all the spelling and grammar errors I can find and then will e-mail the author back to ask some questions I've got or ask if the way I've edited it makes sense/is all right.
Semi-regular updates are all I ask from the potential author, really. I don't care how far apart the updates are, just that they're sort of regular. (I'm kinda OCD about that, but I won't bite your head off if you let the schedule slip a couple of times.)
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling, grammar, and word usage (ie.- is this the right word for what I'm trying to convey?) are areas where I'm very, very strong (not trying to brag or anything...). I'm pretty good at characterization and dialogue as well.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not the best at helping with plot (it's all I can do to come up with a vague outline for my own stories, to be honest). I'll try as much as I can, though.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to beta-read fantasy, science fiction, non-cliche-ridden romances, and anything that could be described as 'dystopian'. I LIKE dystopian fiction. Urban fantasies are a personal favorite of mine as well. Also, parodies are made of win. I will attack your story with a never-before-seen fervor if you give me a parody because I. Heart. Parodies. (Please?)
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Historical fiction, lemons, and mysteries are just 'Not My Cup Of Tea', as it says in the title. I can't stand historical fiction (no idea why, I just dislike them). I can handle sex, it's just that sex for the sake of sex is irksome in a story (all sex, no plot is usually how it ends up being). Mysteries... I like to read mysteries, don't get me wrong, it's just that I probably won't be the right person to beta it.
