Question First time author looking for beta-reading and editing

Hi,

I just finished my first attempt at writing fiction. The full story has 50k words, I intend to post it in five parts.

I have two requests:
1. Beta-reading:
Does the story make sense? Are there any logical breaks in the story line? Can a person who hasn't read the story understand what is happening? Things like these.

2. Editing:
English is not my first language. Therefor I feel that I have used certain verbs and adjectives a bit too often, some support here would be greatly appreciated.

I have spell and grammar checked the story. I know the difference between there, their and they're. I do not think that there are many errors left but...
Also there are some errors word has difficulties in detecting (to/too, quite/quiet, prepositions, etc.)

And last but not least the tenses. Did I used past tense when I should have used past perfect? Or past continous?

Anybody interested?

Best regards
Kojak

Category? That's one of the biggest considerations someone who might help will have.

Missed that tiny little bit of information...

Overall, it's romance, I guess. Some super soft bondage and one group sex scene. But everything consensual.

Hey there!
I might not have a lot of editing experience but I should make for a decent beta reader ;-)
Send a PM my way if you're interested!
Greetings, Cubius

PM is sent.

As I'm fully aware of the fact that this is a voluntary and unpaid effort, I am grateful for every bit of help and support you are willing to give and every insight I can gain from it.
