Proofreading and Copy Editing At Affordable Prices
« on: September 24, 2018, 12:11:01 AM »
- NEW - Going forward, I'm throwing in a free book blurb evaluation. Now, I won't write your book blurb, but I might rewrite it. As of now, I'm not offering this as a separate service. Additionally, I will only consider this service if I'd already read the book. Going in blind on a book blurb is not something I feel comfortable with.

I'm now booking proofreading and/or copyediting spots in mid-February 2019. Sorry, January is all booked up.

Proofreading

One of the most important rules of writing is to have someone else look over your work. It's simply too easy to miss that typo, missing word, extra word, wrong word .  .  . well, you get the idea.

How can I help?

For starters, I'll help catch all those punctuation, grammar and spelling mistakes. As an added bonus, I can proofread your work in either British or American English. Just indicate your preference at time of contract.

As a writer myself, I bring years of experience to help make your work shine.

In case you're wondering about my qualifications - and you should - I have been a professional proofreader since 2009. I've edited government documents, blogs, manuscripts and newspaper articles.

My rates are competitive at $0.003 a word. I charge a minimum fee of $40 on projects less than 10,000 words. I require a 50% deposit with the remainder due at time of completion. All transactions are through PayPal and in US dollars.

Depending on availability, my turnaround time is approximately 5-14 days.

Email me at annaproofreads [at]gmail[dot]com and I'll get back to you within twenty-four hours.


Light Copy Editing New and Updated

I've added the option of a light copy edit service for those looking for that little something extra. In addition to all the benefits of proofreading, light copy editing includes:

- correct grammar, spelling and punctuation
- point out wordy and/or awkward sentences
- ensure consistent use of capitalization, punctuation, hyphenation and use of numbers
- note any awkward gaps in logic and confusing or ambiguous sentences
- flag story inconsistencies - a character's name was Randy and now it's Robbie
- removing and/or flagging repetition
- ensure consistency of plot

NEW - if you've made some significant changes to sections of your book, I will copy edit those sections for free. Up to 10,000 words.

The light copy editing package is $0.005 per word. When booking, please indicate that you would like this package.

I require a 50% deposit with the remainder due at time of completion. All transactions are through PayPal and in US dollars.

Depending on availability, my turnaround time is approximately 7-14 days.

I'd be happy to give you some examples of my work upon request.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

And I'm loving the new forum!
