Rosa P (RosaPonton) | 3 comments I am an aspiring editor who is looking to gain some experience beta reading. I am happy to offer both beta reading and editing services. I am open to all genres, but I am best versed in romantic fiction.

I am a writer, poet, and editor who is an avid and passionate reader. I am in my last year of my MFA in Creative Writing. I also have Bachelor's degrees in English and Spanish and a Master's degree in Spanish. My main job now is teaching Spanish online at a university.

If you would like to know more about me or have anything you would like to me to read or edit, please send me a message or an email at rosap@vt.edu. I would greatly appreciate it, and hope I can help you as much as you will help me!

If you are still looking for books to read, I am in need of a beta reader. The story is a twisted romance, quasi crime novella.

Johanna Bordeaux | 13 comments I'm a published author and former editor in desperate need of a beta reader. The book is halfway through and contemporary romance/romantic comedy.

Must enjoy or at least not dislike Jane Austen, otherwise I'd be wasting your time.

Please let me know if you are interested.

Thanks!
Susan/Johanna

Jeanie (jeanielong) | 62 comments Hi Johanna. I am Jane's biggest fan....
Would you be interested in a swap? Mine is a contemporary romance that teeters on literary and it runs about 150k words. However id be willing to do a word for word swap.

Johanna Bordeaux | 13 comments Hi Jeanie!

Do you mean that in intensity or poundage?

I would love to swap; however, I am currently disabled due to an unrelenting (24/7) severe migraine with neurological auras like aphasia and agnosia that began in the fall of 2013. My ability to do anything is limited to my good days and good hours. I won't be able to give you what I used to do--a professional job with editing simply by rote.

I've only got 34,000 words so far, but reading is much easier for me than writing or even talking to people. Writing with aphasia is like walking half blind through a dense forest at night. I lose the concept of communicating through language. I get stuck because, while I might have something clearly laid out, there is no translation available between thoughts and words.

Still, what I have is mostly coherent. If you're willing to read what I've got and let me know what makes sense plus your other responses, I'm all for it. I'm still a more than competent beta reader, I just may not be all that fast at turn-around times for someone who theoretically does nothing.
