    I know, I know…It’s weird. I am creating a topic to offer my beta reading services instead of requesting it. πŸ˜‰

    Anyway…

    I’ve really enjoyed beta reading in the past, but I haven’t done so in a while. So I thought I’d ask to see if anyone was looking for a beta reader currently??? Also, if you’re free and want to offer to beta read for anyone who might need it, feel free to announce that in this topic! πŸ™‚

    I’ll actually have something ready for beta-reading soon. It will be a couple weeks yet, though.

    I have a handful of short stories that could use beta-reading, if you’re interested. One is a contemporary and two are sci-fi. (One of the latter has a depressing ending, fair warning. XP It’s to set stuff up for later in that world so… it’s kind of a tragedy out of necessity. :P)

    @r-m-archer Cool! I’d love to read them if you’d like. πŸ™‚

     

    @faith_blum Okay. I’m just concerned it might carry over into November (a.k.a. NaNoWriMo πŸ˜‰ ). How long is it? Don’t get me wrong: I just want to be able to give your story all the attention it deserves without distraction.

    @jenwriter17 It should be about 20,000 words. Maybe a little longer.

    @jenwriter17Β  I do in fact have a short story that needs some help…if you would like to beta-read it for me.

    Actually never mind, it’s more like flash-fiction. I just checked the word count and it’s only 1,233 words. So yeah…don’t know if you would be interested but I’ll put it out there. πŸ™ƒ

      Hi πŸ˜€ You’re always welcome to help me beta read Queen of Drama. The links can be found here.

      I’m still working on Part 4 but you can take a look at the first 3 if you wish. πŸ™‚

      @eden-anderson You could do that (maybe even via my website contact page) or you could put your story in a Google doc and post the link. Either one you want. πŸ™‚

      @seekjustice Sweet. πŸ˜‰

      @vatlmy Okay, I will keep that in mind! πŸ˜€

      @jenwriter17 I’m sorry this took so long. I was expecting to be able to go over one of the stories one last time, copy it to the doc, and then post the doc yesterday, but I had technical difficulties that ate up way too much time. XP Anyway, they’re all on here now. Thank you for your willingness to look them over! πŸ™‚
