Beta request. [Jan. 22nd, 2012|07:26 pm]
Arthurian Fic


Is this comm still alive? Sort of? I hope so, 'cause I need some help. I'm looking to write and self-publish a short anthology of Arthurian stories, but I fear my writing is in sore need of polish. Because I am self-publishing, I don't really have the budget to out-and-out hire an editor, so I was hoping that someone (or a couple of someones) might be magnanimous enough to donate their time and skills to beta-reading the stories I plan on including in the antho.

As a brief summary, the book will be Mordred-centric and largely LGBT-themed. The stories will not be linear or related in terms of plot, and will range from traditional (ish) to modern-set to future-set. If I get any sort of money off of this thing, I will do my utmost to compensate anyone who extends me their betaing services. I know this is probably not the best place for this, but it was the only place I could think of where I knew there'd be people interested enough in Arthuriana to at least consider giving me some help.

Thanks in advance to anyone who even considers!

I would love to help but I'm not sure I'll be able to.
I can offer you to read through your texts and give you my opinion on them but I have no degree whatsoever in writing or literature. Plus English isn't my first language... so it would only be a reader's general opinion.

I'd be willing to beta. I have an English degree, although I'm not going to claim that makes me any kind of expert. But I can give you feedback on things like structure and dialogue and watch for grammar issues.

I know you made this post a while ago, but if you're still looking for people to help beta read your book I'm currently working on a degree in English and I've read so much Arthurian literature it almost makes my head spin. I'm not a professional but if you're interested I'd be happy to help.
