Like everyone who writes, I have several betas who are invaluable to me.

My very first beta ever is my bestest friend who lives in Florida, Lisa. Before I knew what a "beta" was, she was there for me, listening to or reading my still-in-the-works novel and giving me con-crit. She is the only one who has heard/read the entire thing, and her help and encouragement has been so fabulous, I had to thank her here.

When I started writing HP fanfic, my first story called "Detention" (my first HG/SS) was posted on The Restricted Section unbetaed. And boy, I can hardly stand to read it now. The characters are not really in character, but the sex is really hot.

After that, I found the lovely [livejournal.com profile] rumours03 who, along with the gorgeous
[livejournal.com profile] dora_the_nymph tag-teamed on my stories and made them ever so much better. Not to mention, their commentary is not only spot-on, but often hilarious. I also have been lucky enough to have Daireen from Knockturn Alley help me out from time to time.

Before she began writing fanfic full time, [livejournal.com profile] snegurochka_lee graciously looked over one or two of my chapters for me.

And last, but not least, [livejournal.com profile] islandsmoke helped me immeasurably when I made my first foray into slashy territory with The Distraction of His Madding Fever . I have her to thank for the quality of that story. It was tricky to write and she cheered me on and would not accept any excuses from me. Because of her, I feel that story is one of my very best--more than the PWP it started out to be. I plan to take advantage of her mad beta-ing skillz in the future...if she'll let me.

Thank you all, I adore you and I couldn't do it without you.

Yay me!

It looks like I'm going to have another chapter of my sirusly neglected fic posted (depending on the queue at SH) before HBP comes out!

The lovely Daireen from KA volunteered to beta for me and my buddy Anne got the surprise of her life in her email box too.

As soon as I get it back, it goes to the queue and (if I say so myself) it's a hell of a chapter.

Thank you Game Show Network. Thank you for putting on the old episodes of "The Amazing Race" every night at 9 est. I finally get to see how it all began. And it's on every night so I don't have to wait for my fix!
Only three and a half more days until the new Harry Potter book is released...squeeee!!

Anyone know where I can find a temporary beta since mine is currently not reading fanfic? I finally have a new chapter written and I need a beta --preferably one who can beta brit-speak-- any volunteers?
