Wanted: Part Time Help. Requirements: Must be AWESOME

The time has come, my dear saplings. I'm looking for TWO experienced betas to read my finished ms. I will be finishing edits over the next three-four days and would really like it to be nestled in caring hands by this Sunday to make notes and tell me what's missing/wrong/awesome/smelly. Wait...

My first pages have been through the gamut over on YALitChat's First Five and have also held spot numero dos on TeenFire's writing forum since it started over a moth ago. However, I'm ready for the Big Lebowski. The golden compass. The green lantern. Wait...

I'm looking for the following in my beta: Efficient, timely, honest, thoughtful, insightful, funny. I like to laugh. A lot.

If you think you're the right candidate for the job, or you know someone who is, email me at:

Pass this post on. Momma needs a shiny ms. Oh and because you're awesome, I've decided to give you a peek at the real Candyland. Yes, you're that special.
Don't say I never gave you anything.

Okay, so I still have a sense of mystery to maintain.

Nice backside. ";-)
Beta readers are cool. I'm pretty fortunate I have a sixteen-year-old son who has lots of 'girlfriends'. A have a group of them who've read my ms and a few of their teachers. You could always solicit in front of a HS, although I wouldn't recommend it. :)

HA! Probably not a good idea to walk around a asking teens to read my crap. I used teens over on Inkpop for feedback which was awesome. But now, I need an overall, editorial view and not just voice, which is mainly what they liked/disliked.

Good Betas are hard to come by.

Depending on what type of beta you need, I'd be willing to help. I'm not a line editer, more of an overall picture type of person. Let me know.
And good luck!!
