Affordable proofreading + writing advice. 15% off your first book!
« on: September 26, 2018, 09:59:36 PM »
Hi everyone! :mhk9U91:


I'm Alexa, and I've been proofreading for self-published authors for about 3 years (2 of them with the help of kboards).
I've worked with hundreds of authors, doing 10 books a month on average. You can find some of their testimonials on my website. Here are some screenshots of their posts as well.
I'm also a self-published author, so I know all about the struggle. Aside from proofreading, I can also give you writing advice. There's a FAQ on my website where you can read more.

I'll be checking in every week to let you know how far out I'm booked, and for now, I've got open slots on Oct 9th, 12th, and 29th. November's mostly open after 11/9.
Please use the website to contact me about proofreading - I'll need the details from the contact form.


For a limited time, there's a 15% discount for new authors. Are any of the authors I've worked with already on this forum? :smiley:

A quick reminder - if you need to cancel, please take a minute to let your editor/proofreader know. They'll have a chance to move up someone else. Don't disappear at the last moment, especially, repeatedly. It's not harmless, because freelancers' income depends on it.

A big thank you to my regulars who are always on time/professional/responsible.  :pdt May Amazon gods bless you with lots of $$$ grint
