Need beta
« Reply #32 on: Sat, Jun 10, 2006, 03:41 PM »
Hi guys. I'm gonna need a beta for On a Raven's Wing. It's 68 ch. with a epilouge. I need help with general gramer, finding plot holes I've missed, etc.

Any takers?

Greetings all!
If anyone is in need of a beta reader I'd love to offer my services.  I'm not a "professional" proofreader/editor at this time but just because there's no paycheck involved doesn't mean I've lost the skills.

Regrettably, I don't check the boards frequently but you can always reach me via PM.

Thanks for the chance to help.

Wow, so many people in need of a beta...

I am willing to offer myself as a beta reader or proof reader, whatever you want. I'm not experienced in it, but I've done it before for a friend of mine, mostly reading back school papers and such...

English is not my native language, but I was one of the best two in my class during my high school exams five years ago. I've always read english books, watch the movies without the subtitles, etc.. so I do a lot of things in english and grammer and spelling are my thing in pretty much every language I've ever learned, so if you want me to take on the job, feel free to PM me and I'll be glad to help you out!!

(I'm *so* not believing I'm really typing this, let alone send it off!)
Okay... so I *could* really need a beta for a TFATF fic.

*Long* chapters, *lots* of technical stuff, first chapter has *anything* but TFATF in it (sort of prologue to what will come in later chapters; but it's *long*...); probably *quite a lot* of waiting time for the next chapter(s) to be finished... plus, English is *not* my first language. I tend to make too many commas and *very* funny mistakes(I once confused 'temples' with 'sleeves' in a different story of a different fandom, as the word "Schlaefen" means "temples" in German and of course I *knew that*, but my head made 'sleeves' of it - so - I ended up having one character massaging another character's *sleeves*, not the temples...), which definitely need to be corrected.

You're *not* scared? Then you're definitely the right person for the job ;-)

beta reader for slash stories
« Reply #49 on: Sat, Jul 21, 2007, 03:14 AM »
Is anyone interested in beta reading my Riddick stories (slash, NC-17 rated for sex and violence)?

English isn't my native language. I write my stories in german and translate them to english.
Your job would be to find language mistakes, such as bad grammar, false use of words, unusual word-order, punctuation etc.
If you want to get an idea how "bad" my english is, look here: http://www.vindiesel.hu/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7473
That's how the texts I'll send you will look. This story hasn't been corrected for language other than a friend, whose native language isn't english too, pointing out a few misspelled words.

You don't have to read the stories for content, storyline, characterization etc., those things should already be straightened out by the time I translate my stories to post them here. :)

I could help out with some beta reading if anyone's desperate.  I am NOT a professional proofreader but my English is good (should be I suppose, since I AM English!) and my grammar reasonable (went to grammar school but was never actually taught it!).  I am not overly critical and would be happy to point out spelling errors and alter the construction of sentences, etc. but I'm not strong on technical things so you'd have to bear with me on those and possibly explain them to me!  If I CAN help, feel free to PM or email me.

Need a beta for a chapter of Fate has one more Twist.  

Not to sound choosy but I think someone that knows and has read the story would be best.  This one, I'm unsure about.  I think it will lead to some interesting things but... :think it's very different.  

So, i"m looking for a beta and some input.  Thanks

I need a beta for a new story I'm writing.. I don't want to bog LouRose down w/ it (unless you want it) cause I got her doing lots of other stuff.  

It's Riddick/OFC... NC-17 for sex and language

PM me of your interested.  I have over 11,000 words so far so it will be kinda long.
