Wanted: Betas and Editors for the 2017 Pros Big Bang!  
BodieReading

Here's your opportunity to sign up to offer your services as an editor/beta.

If you haven't done this before, here is how it works: you sign up below to volunteer and if someone needs you to read their story, they ask you to help. You and your writer set your parameters, such as read for plot only, or read for grammar, punctuation, or whatever you both feel comfortable with. Beta readers and editors are important to most writers so that they can present a clean and polished final version of their story.

If you are a writer who already has a beta and/or editor, they don't have to sign up. This is only for folks who want to volunteer to help writers who possibly don't have anybody to help them out.
Thanks a million!

What pairings/genres do you enjoy/are you willing to read: all except death

What are your strengths as a beta reader?: plot only (my english isn't good enough for grammar or something else)

What kind of turn-around time can someone expect from you? I think maximum three days. If I should need longer, I would tell.

What pairings/genres do you enjoy/are you willing to read: In a beta capacity I'll read pretty much anything. I do like warnings for the 'usual' - graphic violence, non-con, under age, or major character death.

What are your strengths as a beta reader?: Good on grammar and spelling, dialogue, strong on canon references, can recognise but maybe not fix pacing and plot issues. I'm not from the UK, so I can't do a Britpick.

What kind of turn-around time can someone expect from you?: Basically a week per 20,000 words.
