- Work Description:
- I'm offering a meticulous beta of basically anything, starting at $5 for 2k, with tiers as follows:
$5 - 2k
$10 - 5k
$15 - 7.5k
$20 - 10k
After $20, each additional $5 covers another 5k words. Cap is at 200k (which I'll grant at $200, if we get there! ☺) Can be split over multiple works, chapters, etc.
My strengths as a beta are, generally:
- spotting plot holes and keeping plot points and POVs consistent;
- helping translate action to text (e.g. sorting out whose hand is where);
- reading for characterization;
- researching and fact-checking (I *adore* fact-checking); and
- making suggestions for tone, flow, and SPAG!
In essence, I'm a mid-to-late-stage beta, rather than a brainstormer, cheer-reader, or alpha reader. I work best when I've got words to work with.
Testimonials: I've been told, by different people, that I am "an EXCELLENT beta reader" and that my "SPAG eye is fantastic"--take that as you like!
The MCU fandoms I know best are listed above, but if you want something else reach out and we'll see. I can also beta most AUs (some, particularly sports-based, I might need to research--but I *like* research so don't hesitate to ask if one would work). As well, I'm happy to take on crossovers, but I might not know the canon characterization of your cross-universe--so please reach out if you want me to beta a crossover or non-MCU characterization! I can also happily adapt to either US or UK spellings and idiom (or the bizarre chimera that is Canadian English orthography!); just let me know.
Timeline entirely dependent on bid size, when you have words ready, etc. Open to discussions!
