If the two can be combined (an Aussie beta reader) I'd be delighted beyond belief.

I'm just starting to write my first novel which is a mix of fantasy with sci-fi and a HUGE load of mostly WW2-ish history . I'm not a native english speaker and when I was writing fan fiction my beta at the time was not without work. I basically need someone to not only fix my grammer and spelling but also watch out for character inconsistencies and character development as I have an inkling my characters aren't very well defined from each other.

As for the specification for an Australian reader, one of my main characters is an Aussie and I not only want him to sound like it (i.e write the accent into the story) but also his whole speech and choice of words needs to sound genuine but not 'sat-with-a-list-of-slang-off-of-wikipedia' kind of writing.

Many, many, many thanks in advance!!
