Rachel Lapidow | 7 comments Good Afternoon,

I'm presently taking courses in becoming a copyeditor and would like to flex my editing muscles by beta reading short stories and novels. I am currently a volunteer editor for a local newspaper and have edited for a variety of companies.

Genres I am interested in:
Science-fiction
Fantasy
Mystery
Romance
Humor, satire, allegory
Contemporary

Topics I will not review:
Anything containing child abuse or rape
Anything with animal abuse
Very gory material (Totally not against this genre, I just spook very easily)

Please feel free to send me a message if you feel that I would be a good beta reader for your work.

Thank you,
Rachel

Would you be interested in women's fiction, cca 80K count?

Thanks.

Rachel Lapidow | 7 comments Hi Mimi,

I would love to look over a chapter or two and take it from there. A lot of my favorite books would be considered women's fiction.

I want to make sure that I am engage with each piece that I beta for. It doesn't do the author any favors to agree to beta for them if you don't like the material (for whatever reason).

Best,

Rachel
