  1. So two of my betas decided to quit simultaneously, which is rather inconvenient and disappointing. Nonetheless: I am seeking a replacement beta for the final chapters of Veil of Shadow. If you have a good grasp of English and the language's intricacies, a mind for detail and the grand plot, and you really 'get' the sort of tale I am telling ... then this might be a role for you. Send me a message if you are interested in doing so. Potential to carryover into the third book also, if interest exists.
  2. Looking for beta readers for a new series I am looking to write. Please contact me if you are intrested in MM coming of age series.
  3. Basically I've run into a problem. Due to issues with my health and then not having a computer, the normal people I tap for beta work aren't able to do it anymore. In some cases it is real life has interfered, which I can understand, or they have sort of faded away from GA. Just so people know, I was made aware by a reader of one story left undone. To be honest, it was a 10 chapter story, 5 were up and my beta found a plot hole you could drive a cruise ship through starting in 6. No problem, I could just redo 6 to 10. Then I got sick, computer died and to be completely
  4. I'm presently working on two different projects. This is a one shot, approximately 2,000+ words. Wanted - Are you good at seeing the problems? Not afraid to be honest with someone? Got a good red pen and not afraid to use it? Then I have a project for you! The story - Blue, Brownie, and Wedding White This came about because of Cia's little project for the site - Two Nouns. Well after a really short scene people wanted more. I caved and wrote more. I'm sure even with this expansion, it wont be enough, but it all depends on what you as a beta need more of, or le
  5. Im looking for a Beta reader for my newest story. Its a high school romance. The story is completed, 16 chapters 8-12 pages each (although im thinking of splitting them up differntly). Looking to post first chapter asap and about a week inbetween each next one. Mostly I'm looking for plot holes or incansistancies. Things that feel unbelievable. I prefer using google docs with a share link but if need be other arrangements can be made If we work well together i have more in the works and will probably be able to keep you busy if wanted. SAMPLE: Antonio Mancini stepped off the
  6. I'm looking for a proof/beta reader that's familiar with my story "The Field of Love". I'm back to writing and I just need some to look over the chapters to make sure everything is in sic with the previous chapters and if I could word things a little better for everyone's understanding. Hit me up if you're interested. Billy
  7. Looking for a beta and/or editor for a summer anthology piece, which is due on 26 May 2016. It covers a gay man who makes a game out of dating straight men or convincing them to one-night stands, but one of them ends up being more open to a homosexual relationship and pursues him. They are, coincidentally, working for the same office in the same building. The new guy pursues the player. So yes, I need help writing this and would appreciate suggestions on how to go about it and judge what I have right now. Like many artists, I have a good idea and don't know how to press it further. Also, I
  8. Hi All, Usually I am all about sharing and letting people read what I am in the middle of to see if they want to help. No can do on this one. I've written a piece for the Secret Admirer Contest and am looking for help in a beta and possible editor. For those who have worked with me you know me. I am easy to get along with. I want help to make sure this is as easy to read and makes sense. If you say expand, I expand, You need less, I cut, and if you need explanations, I will do my best to explain whatever it is. Because this is a contest I can't go into detail about what the story i
  9. I am working on a science fiction/romance story involving a marine shifter (merman). It is currently about 20K words and is maybe half done. I was looking for someone who has beta'd before who could let me know how it flows, as well as hopefully point out typos/errors. I have worked with editors/betas before, and I prefer to use Word 'track changes' where you can mark line edits as well as 'comments' where you can add notes/questions/etc. As long as your suggestions/edits/remarks are highlighted in some way, that would be fine. I often will send several chapters at once so that you
  10. I would prefer to develop a long term working relationsip with and editor and a beta as I have several projects, but if not I still need two works that need to be looked over right now. 1. short story for a writing event. About 6K right now may go up to around 10 k Must be turned into organizers by May 1st so I need feed back before then 2. Contemporary novella 36k words. Not so strict a deadline, but would like to head to publishing within the next couple months. I'd like both read for plot, connections of characters, typos, grammar, and advice on the stories. both are complete or i
  11. I'm looking for someone to look over three chapters (7500+ words) and let me know (1) if the story is worth reading (2) for grammar (3) if you might be interested in either being my beta reader or editor for this story. I don't intend to post any of the story until the story is completed, beta read, and edited, so there's no reason at all for the story not to post once a week. Please either let me know here or private message me. Thanks Billy
  12. Hey Guys and gals I have been wanting to write a story about a man who is ex-gay (yeah I know, went there myself, and there is no such thing) in a Charismatic Christian church. I come from that background myself and went through the whole thing. Much of what I would write about I actually experienced but It's no autobiographical. It is steeped in christian terminology and so may be a turn-off for some, but because my own life is still solidly based in at least a stream of Christianity, I wanted it to be real because I believe there are many, many people who would love to express their relati
  13. On behalf of the Editing Team, I'd like to introduce, and welcome our newest Beta Reader vick99 I'm sure Vick will make a valuable contribution to the Beta team. Vick is a writer too, so he understands the value a beta brings to the story. He likes drama, romance, thrillers and teenagers coming out stories. He'll accept 1st and 2nd drafts. He understands the word Beta to mean reading a written work in progress, before the story is released, that Beta readers must look over the story and give any suggestions to improve the story itself. Both character and plot play a big role
  14. I've been with GA for a few years now. When I first joined I would have killed to have immediately found a good beta and editor. Over time, for most things I found myself settling down and working with the same two or three incredible people over and over again. It was comfortable, and I knew I could rely on their honest opinions of my work. Flash forward to recently. While there are some damn fine editors working on site the Betas seem to have vanished. What is a Beta? Glad you asked. A beta reader is not an editor. A beta reader is just that, a second reader of a story. They look
  15. Hi Members, The GA Beta/Editing process is vital. So important that many a writer simply would not be able to continue a story without our help. They say a writer writes, and an editor edits, that is true to an extent. However, I know of some writers who are able to edit, and some editors who are able to write. Of-course there might be members who disagree completely, but then that's all a matter of subjective belief, or, as some might say; opinion. Personally, I feel that if you are good at catching common grammatical and usage errors in a story, then you are the person we seek to
