Beta Reader ProfileAre you new to beta reading?
I am currently Beta-ing for someone, but am willing to pick up here and there for others if need be.
28, and I've been writing for roughly 16 yrs.
How many authors would you like to beta read?
Like I said, I'm already dedicated to one author, but I can assist others on a one-off basis.
Fantasy & Fantasy Romance writer, and I try to stay in this field for my beta reading because it's also what I enjoy reading.
What won't you beta?
I can pretty much read anything, but would prefer to keep things in my comfort genre (Fantasy & Romance), simply because I'll get bored, and won't really want to read it.
What's your writing skill level?
With 16 yrs under my belt, I certainly hope I'm not a beginner anymore. My writing has obviously progressed over the years, and I really try to help other young writers with developing their own voice. I didn't really have
Fighting Fate Scene 5"I have a sister? Where is she?" Skylar asked, having always been an only child, it was strange to think that there was a chance that she had a sister. A twin sister at that only made it more exciting.
"Her name is Alegra." Elana replied, but did not emphasize any further as she waited for her eldest daughter to ask the questions.
"Is she here?" Skylar looked around the clearing, anxious to meet the sister she never knew she had.
"No. Alegra wanders these woods and those around it." Elana admitted to not watching after the only daughter she still had close to her.
"What? You let them take me away and send me an entire world away!" Skylar exclaimed. "I get dragged here to find out that I have a twin sister only to find out that you have no idea where she is. What kind of a mother are you?! What kind of a woman are you?" Skylar protested.
Tiny Little TuneShe couldn't help but watch him as she waited for the tram to continue down the boardwalk. Her dark glasses hid the fact that she was staring him up and down, trying to memorize every aspect of his being. Placing him into her memory for later withdrawal. A perfect subject.
He sat there on the light brown bench with white sides. He was oblivious to the older gentleman sitting next to him or the young kids running circles around. The only thing he could focus on was the small black object in his hands.
The perfectly un-scuffed white sneakers on his feet were planted flat on the ground. Not budging. His arms tense waiting - caused the light blue collared shirt to be taut around his biceps. The white collar was left open, only the first button done.
His legs tensed and he braced himself to stand up. The faded light blue jeans stretched across the width of his thighs, but were loose below the knee. His head dropped and his eyes closed. He obviously wasn't getting what he wanted. The
Ash Arrives at Dune Castle"Malachi!" Ash screamed from the stairs before the keep in Malachi's castle. "I won't say it again!" Ash was perched on Shadow's bare back; his cloak laying across Shadow's back in front of him.
"To what do I owe the honor of you being in my castle? And how is it that you are in my castle?" Malachi appeared at the top of the steps flanked by Rafe on his right and Skylar on his left, a group of soldiers waiting for orders standing behind him.
"As if your men wouldn't be scared of me, or more correctly the Nightmare which I ride?" Ash knew how to speak Malachi. He always had to take a superior tone with the King. Otherwise, Malachi would never see him as an equal; and being an equal with Malachi was the only way to gain his confidence. "Besides, a Dwarf could jump from your gatehouse to the portcullis."
Malachi smirked, raised a hand, and with the twist of his wrist the soldiers dispersed.&
Behind Blue EyesShe lay on her bed, unable to even get out of it and walk around her own home. Having had visitors most of the day, she was grateful for the peace and quiet her empty room gave her.
Looking across the room to the long mirror on the back of her bedroom door, she saw her brilliant blue eyes sparkling back. Not a day went by that she didn't look in that mirror and see those soft eyes returning her gaze. Not since she bought that mirror all those years ago.
As she looked at her reflection, she wondered if her eyes had always been that shade of blue. The night she was born, when she opened her eyes for the first time and looked at her mother, were they a crystalline blue?
She couldn't remember. She couldn't remember many things these days. Old age had taken its toll not only on her body but on her mind as well. She was unable to remember many things, but the few memories she had were truly cherished.
As a young gir
Ash's StorySkylar sat at the small fire Ash started. Emrick was curled up in a ball a few feet away from her, fast asleep. Alegra bade farewell to the three; she didn't want to be there when Levart and the other elves arrived. Ash had gone to gather a couple more logs to keep the fire going over night. The place was so quiet that Skylar finally got the chance to just sit and think about what had happened in the last couple days.
It was amazing how much had happened, and how well she had handled it. She was actually quite proud of herself. Even when she was captured by the centaurs, she didn't completely freak out. Granted, it had been very stressful, but in the back of her mind, she knew she'd be saved; either by Ash or Levart. She had to admit to herself that she was glad it had been Ash and not Levart. Reading the news about Emrick and the price her father had put on his head was the worse moment
Skylar Meets Alegra"That's it right up there." Ash pointed a few hundred yard in front of them.
"Why do they call it the Whispering Woods?"
"There used to be an abundance of people, human and non, that could hear and understand languages other than their own. And it was during those times that this wood was named because people used to be able to hear the trees talking. They used to be able to hear the rocks moving, and the water cutting through the earth. But either the trees stopped talking or the people stopped listening. Either way, it's still held its name."
"Really? People could talk to the trees?" Skylar was perplexed.
"I take it they can't do that where you come from?"
"Well, I guess some of them can, but the ones that admit to it are considered to be insane." Skylar thought about the grocery store magazines that would just love one day in this world. They'd have news for more than a year.
As they a
Fighting Fate : PrologueNineteen years ago
Quickly making his way up the staircase to the king's chambers, Lord Rafe, the king's administrator, entered the room, and walked up to the king. "Sire, two children have been born to the Queen"
"She is not the Queen or a queen for that matter, and you will not address her as such." Anger evident in his voice.
"King Malachi, my apologies, but I still await your instructions on what to do with the children." Rafe replied.
Malachi shook his head. "I can't believe this! First she scams her way into my castle and into my bed, and now she has given birth to two heirs to this throne!" Malachi paced the room like a caged tiger. "You are supposed to protect me from events just like this!" Malachi was obviously venting his frustrations. He was still unable to grasp how Elana of the Wood had disguised herself and convinced him to marry her, let alone bear his childre
