Editors & Proofreaders [Public] / Proofreading and Beta Reading Services
« Last post by Shawna on March 25, 2020, 04:44:57 AM »
Hello, writers! I'd like to offer proofreading and beta reading services for your novels and short stories. I'm up for pretty much any genre of fiction, though I prefer fantasy, YA, and romance.

Experience:
A BA in English, a couple decades of proofing/editing my own works, and a very good eye for detail.

Services:

Proofreading - Reading to catch and correct obvious typos (spelling and punctuation errors, duplicated or missing words, inconsistently spelled proper nouns, etc.). Basically, the sorts of things that a careful reader is likely to also catch.

Proofreading Plus - All of the above, with the addition of: checking for incorrect grammar and either correcting it or suggesting corrections (via comments); making note of anything that I personally know to be factually inaccurate, such as if you're talking about a gun and say "clip" when you mean "magazine" (note: this is not fact-checking, only noting things which I, as a non-expert, recognize as incorrect); noting anything that's confusing or unclear; making note of anything that seems to be inconsistent characterization ("Why does this character do/say X, when you've previously established Y?"); noting anything that really stands out as illogical plotting; any other comments I happen to think of. This isn't a detailed edit, only noting things that I, as a reader, would notice and have an issue with if I were reading for enjoyment.

Beta Read - Read the manuscript and give a summary of my overall thoughts on things like pacing, characterization, character development, plotting, and genre-appropriateness (in genres that I'm familiar with). No detailed line notes.

With any of these services, I will not try to rewrite your prose or change your style. Anything that's not an obvious mistake/typo/error will be noted with a comment rather than a correction.

Prices:

Proofread - $1 per 1,000 words

Proofread Plus - $2 per 1,000 words

Beta Read - $0.50 per 1,000 words

Payments via PayPal, paid in full before work begins. If I receive the manuscript and think it needs more work than what I provide, I may cancel and give you a refund. (Manuscripts for proofreads should be nearly ready to publish. Manuscripts for beta reads can be a lot rougher.) If you'd like, I can do a free sample of up to five pages.

Format:

A .doc (not .docx) Word document or a .odt (Libre Office Writer) document. (I don't have a newer version of Word, so I can't do .docx.) If you'd prefer a different method, just let me know. I'm open to pretty much anything as long as it doesn't require a program I don't have.

    Hi!
    I have a few books that will need proofread/line editing and I was thinking of having one or two development edits. Would you be able to fit me in your schedule and how would we go about this?

    Feel free to pm or respond here.

    Hi! Sure, let me PM and we'll see what we can do :)
