2016 BETA READER POST

There is still plenty of time left in the writing period, but some of you may already be finished (or close to it), or you may just want to get a beta reader in place for when you do finish. So, if you need a beta reader or would like to volunteer services, please use this post!

While we do not require stories to have a beta reader, we strongly recommend it.

If you're volunteering as a beta, please comment here! Tell us:
  • Which fandoms you can work in (full list of Crossovering fandoms)

  • How to contact you: email, @Twitter, Tumblr, Skype, PM on LJ/DW, etc.

  • If you're offering SPAG, worldbuilding, character, or plot help ... or all four!

  • An estimate of what your turnaround time is

  • Your dealbreakers, aka what you won't beta, e.g., violence, non-con, cheating, mushrooms, talking animals, etc.


If you're looking for a beta, you can leave an anonymous comment here listing the fandoms you need help with. DO NOT REVEAL YOUR INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT.

Anonymous comments will be unscreened and can be replied to by beta volunteers with their contact info.

If you're looking for a beta and are worried about revealing your assignment, you can email the mods and we'll act as go-between on your behalf.

We hope everyone is enjoying the writing process so far, but if you need any assistance, feel free to comment here or e-mail us and we'll do what we can.

Additional fandoms, for which you'll need to allow extra time for me to review canon if you need more than I-read-it-several-years-ago familiarity:
Chalion Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold
Discworld - Terry Pratchett
Ender Series - Orson Scott Card
Firefly
His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman
Leverage have only seen the first few episodes
The Martian - All Media Types have only seen the movie
The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien
Star Trek: The Original Series

I'm also willing to look at stories where I'm familiar with some but not all of the fandoms, in case you can't find anybody who's betaing both/all of the fandoms you're writing.

Email me: lirin.lirilla AT gmail

Offering: Pretty much anything! Just tell me which things you're looking for assistance with. (I particularly enjoy nitpicking phrasing and flow.)

Turnaround time: I don't want to guarantee less than 4 days due to unpredictable health issues, but I may very well be able to turnaround much faster, even within 24-36 hours. Just ask!

Dealbreakers: Sorry, I don't beta sexual content. (This isn't totally hard and fast. If it's in a small section you don't mind me skipping or otherwise minor, that would probably be okay.)
