These are all the authors who are looking for a beta reader. If you are one of these authors, please create a post with the following template:

Title of Piece:
Looking for a Beta Who Can/Will: Specify what in particular you are looking for from a beta reader. Do you want them to focus on plot? Grammar? Characterization? Or are you going for something overall?
Preferred Form of Communication: Email, Penana PM, etc.
Preferred Form of Beta-ing: Google Docs, Penana's system, etc.
Deadline: Are you on a time crunch and have a deadline to meet?

Authors: Once you are no longer looking for a beta reader, please update your post saying so. A simple "no longer looking" or the like at the top of your post will do. Essentially, keep your post up to date by editing your post when changes occur or should be known.

Beta Readers: If you wish to offer your services to an author, please send them a PM. Do not post a reply to their post as this will make everything really confusing. Only authors can create posts or reply to their own posts. This is just to make everything clean and organized as I am kind of OCD like that.

All communication should be done through the preferred communication system.

If you have any questions, feel free to PM me or post on the Questions thread.

Yup (:

Title of Piece:Survivor
Genre(s):young adult, dark, angst
Summary/Description:Once upon a time there was a boy named Joseph. His life wasn't happy, it was dark, depressing and filled with pain. However, this isn't his story, his is too much to tell, too dark for most. What is written here is the truth, if you choose to see it. If not, see it as a depressing story about child abuse and what it means to be a survivor.
