In bad news, my beta has vanished, im assuming to real life insanity.
I emailed someone who offered the other day, but havent heard back yet.
So, Im looking for a new beta.
And, im a little strange when it comes to betas. i want someone who will discuss characterization, plot points, point out weirdness in either, point out stupid mistakes (or just fix them. Chances are, I wont notice). I prefer someone who is willing to look over the same part two or three times if major changes are made.
I DONT want someone who will read a part and make ABSOLUTELY no suggestions/changes. i dont want someone who is just wanting to read things early.
I also want someone who can be on board for the long haul, until this thing is finished. We've actually rounded the halfway point, and im tempted to start sticking bits and pieces together and stop hinting about what happened.
If anyone is interested, please drop me a comment. If i have more than one person interested, ill send the same part to everyone, and we'll have a beta-off. or something.
