Are there any genres you will not help with?
I will not help with fanfiction or nonfiction.
Do you have a preferred genre?
I greatly enjoy fantasy, sci-fi, dystopian, paranormal, supernatural, and young adult. However, I also like some romance, humor, general fiction, and the occasional non-teen fiction.
Are there any rules or regulations you have in terms of what stories you will help with? (Rating preference, content preference, etc.)
I will help with a story of any rating (G through R), and I have no issues with gore, violence, language, etc. BoyxBoy and GirlxGirl scenes do not bother me. You can pretty much lay out anything on me.
Do you favor email, private message, or some other communication platform for contacting your author(s) If email would you like the story to be sent through an actual email or attachment?
I do prefer email, simply because I can post my suggestions, corrections, and advice through email more easily than through private message, do to the word count. I also prefer content to be sent through email attachment, though it doesn't have to be sent that way. If you must contact me through private message, I don't mind.
What is your first language?
Though I know the purpose of beta reading is to help stories grow into something better, I do enjoy stories that are more maturely written and that have been edited. I don't like correcting grammar, though I will do it, so long as the problems are minor and not in every sentence. As a whole, I'd much prefer to have a story where I can focus on the characters and plot rather than the grammar and a "thrown-together" vibe.
For substantive editing, how skilled are you at each of the following? Please rate between 1-5 (1 being least proficient, 5 being most proficient.)
Do you have previous experience in this area? I have helped several stories in the beta reading area, including Poison Ivy, Prophecy: Of The Chosen, All Because of Love, and another I believe has recently been taken down for revisions.
