Okay, I was directed here from the Fantasy forums when I posted looking for an editor. Good to know there is such a thing as a Beta Reader. *Cheers for Beta Readers*

I'm looking for someone who likes fantasy and is willing to help me during my WIP. I currently have over 54K words, am still editing most of the chapters myself but am running into punctuation errors. I've made up a lot of my own words and will offer a pronunciation of said words as well as a rough translation. This work was done during NaNoWriMo 2008 and I am looking to polish it up for submission. Please feel free to contact me here if you are interested and thanks very much in advance. I'm also willing to read in return.

*Title* Tomes of Eir du'Brusai: Legend of Black Rose
*Synopsis* Love has caused lesser destruction. When a refusal of marriage brings about a war between two kingdoms, Black Rose is called upon by the Goddess of Justice, Fizanu, to right the wrong once more. The Relavian King has had enough of Fizanu's "weapon" and seeks to remove Black Rose from the world of Eir du'Brusai once and for all.

I'd be open to a swap, I'm 16k words into the revision of a 178k draft, I'm guessing the revision will be more along the lines of 130-150k. I'm not all that super with punctuation, but I'd be happy to be another set of eyes and will likely go down to the sentence level with comments. I'd probably be fairly blunt, just as a warning.

You can see the current state of chapter 1 (though I'll be posting a new revision tonight) at my blog http://www.iplayawriter.com/

PM me if you might be interested in a swap.
