Need a beta for an original novel in progress
- Hi all,
I'm sending out an SOS because I'm in search of a beta willing to
read the first couple of chapters of a novel I've started to write
and willing to work with me through it's completion.
Genre: sci/fi; fantasy
Rating: going to be N-17 for sex especially (but it could also be for
some language and violence as well).
Het or slash: Slash, definitely.
Other info: there will be no rape or BDSM. Also, this story does deal
with vampires in case that either turns some people on or off. I'll
discuss the plot further with those interested in helping me out.
Format of the novel: Microsoft word .doc file if that makes a
difference to anyone. I usually work in .txt but .doc is what the
publisher wants, so I'm not going to argue.
What I need in a beta:
I need someone willing to hack the novel to bits if needed. Someone
willing to find and correct grammer/spelling/punctuation errors.
Someone willing to point out plot holes, weaknesses of any scene or
dialogue including anything that might be bogging it down or
nonessential. Someone who can help me keep the prose tight and
flowing well. Also, someone who would be willing to let me bounce
various ideas off them.
If there's anyone interested on this list and up to the challenge,
please feel free to write me.
- I would be glad to beta your original novel!
I'm slash-friendly, so that's good, um, well, my strengths lie in
spelling and grammar.
So, just tell me what you want me to do, and I'll do so.
