Twilight, I'm going to have to pull out of this reading society. I'm now only allowed 30 minutes on the computer, from now on, so I can't do this. I'm sorry.

Name: Nightfire95, Ksenia
Writer limit: I could do 3 or 4 at the moment
Critiquing style: I check for grammar and spelling, and most likely also how the story goes on, how readers find it interesting or boring, etc.
Genre preferred: Fantasy, Action, realistic fiction.
Promptness of edit: Maybe sometime the next day, or three days, depending on the length of the story (note: this time period was an average)
Specifications: I’m working on a story on NF (The Rebecca Chronicles), and I hope to get it published when it’s really ready.
Strengths: Well, I am good at writing realistic fiction and fantasy (I think )
Weaknesses: My friends are telling me to write mystery, but I’ve never written mystery, so this will definitely be a challenge.
Submission details: First the person may PM me and tell me the basics, then, they can email it to me or PM. I don’t mind whichever one they use.
Current subscribers to service: Not anyone…yet.

I think the name Beta readers is misleading. Not eveyrone knows who that is. Maybe we could get this thread name changed to something like 'Free editor's' or something. I know people want one, but i bet they dont get what a beta reader is and dont want to take the time to find out.

OMG! I need an editor! I really don't care who does it. But it's in the fantasy/medieval/romance genres. It's called "Behind the Facade".
But seriously I don't care who does it!
