Good, fast, and cheap editing ($0.002/word)
« on: January 22, 2019, 06:09:39 AM »
Hey everyone,

This year I've decided to hang out my editing shingle, and I'm offering copy editing for $0.002 a word (that's $2 per 1,000 words so, for example, a 50,000-word manuscript would be $100).

I'm happy to provide you with a free sample edit of up to 1,500 words so you can get a feel for how I work and decide whether my services are right for you.

The editing service covers:

* Spelling, grammar, syntax, punctuation, and tense, including technical consistency
* Inconsistencies and continuity errors
* Fact checking and potential legal liability
* Repeated or overused words, confusing passages, and tonal shifts

Why is it so cheap?

Since I'm just starting as a business, I'm offering these services at a very low price for a limited time to get the ball rolling. I can say that I've been writing and editing professionally for more than 15 years. Hopefully, you'll find that my services are a good bargain.

Because I've worked extensively in various fields of publishing, I offer copy editing for all genres, and in both fiction and non-fiction.

Beta reading: $0.001 per word ($1 per 1,000 words) -- thanks to hungryboson for the suggestion!

I will read your book and leave comments / suggestions in the manuscript (good and bad!), as well as note any egregious errors. I will also provide a summary of thoughts, impressions, areas that are great, and areas where I would suggest improvement.

Turnaround time for copyedits and beta reading will be approximately 3 to 7 days, depending on the length of the manuscript and the number of projects I have.

If you'd like a sample edit or you're ready to book a full edit, you can PM me here (where, hopefully, I will receive it) or send me an email at sonyabateman.author@gmail.com. You can also check out my website at https://blackratchetstudios.wixsite.com/all3editing.

Feel free to PM me with questions or post them here in this thread. Thanks for reading my post!

Thanks! Yes, I can absolutely offer beta reading (I have been beta reading for several author friends, for many years now  Grin ).

For beta reads, I usually leave comments in the manuscript (good and bad!) as I'm reading, and I'll note any egregious errors. I will also provide a summary of thoughts, impressions, areas that are great, and areas where I would suggest improvement.

The rate for beta reading would be $0.001 per word, or $1 per thousand words. Please feel free to email or PM me if you're interested (I have immediate openings).  grint
