My name is Andrea, and I'm a 20 year old college junior majoring in English with a minor in Writing & Rhetoric. Needless to say, I am a huge Twilight fan, and if I ever meet Rob Pattinson, I will force him to marry me. Just kidding! Maybe. ... I kind of have a huge obsession with him that started after Harry Potter. Yes, I liked him after Harry Potter, not Twilight, but when I found out he was playing Edward, I almost had a coronary.
A little over a year ago, I was on Rob's IMDB board, and I happened to run across someone talking about tby789's The Office FanFic. I was curious as to what Fanfiction was, so I clicked on the link and read The Office. As they say, the rest is history.
I have written stories for a while but have never let anyone else read them. I love reviews, because they make me feel so good about myself and boost my practically non-existent self-esteem.
I am a beta with Project Team Beta. If you need a beta, you can submit your story at the website, and there will be two experienced betas that check over your submission. This is a great service, and I highly suggest that you take advantage of it.
I am also a moderator at Emergency Beta Service. This is a great service that answers beta-related questions and betas teasers through Twitter, GChat, and a form on the website.
Additionally, I am a beta with the Sparkly Red Pen. This is an awesome beta service that sets an author up with a beta and a pre-reader, and you get to work with that beta and pre-reader for five chapters to see how the beta'ing system works. If you like the beta and pre-reader you have been set up with, you can choose to continue working with them after the five chapters are done. This is a revolutionary new beta service that is a completely new idea! The website is here, and I highly recommend that you check it out! We are also looking for new betas and pre-readers since we are just getting started, so if you are a beta or pre-reader, check out the website and fill out an application. These are all highly-talented betas and pre-readers and a great service to the fandom!
I am also a Spotlight Interview Coordinator with TwiFic Central. This is a great gig, and I get to interview high-profile authors in the fandom. ;)
