Spotlight on an author service!
As you may know, I love helping others succeed. I started some gigs on Fiverr to help others who have author services to offer among other gigs. Today I’m featuring an editor. Take a look! (My own service info is on down below.)
Hey budding eBook and other authors—if you’re getting ready to self-publish your eBook, whether it’s on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, Kobo or through an independent publisher—take note—no matter how good your manuscript may be, a poorly edited book will take you nowhere and flop in sales.
Although proofreading and editing can be expensive, it doesn’t have to be. If you’re looking for professional work at a reasonable rate, hop on your computer and go to www.ebookediting.us for a no cost estimate on proofreading and editing.
My own services
Do you need a proofreader to read through your novel one more time? Are you looking for a writer to write a blog post, article, or eBook?
So do you need a proofreader or a writer?
I can do either of those so look no further!
Do you need proofreading?
Maybe you’re asking yourself, “What’s the difference between a copy editor and a proofreader?” I get that question quite a bit.
Here’s my definition in a nutshell. A copy editor revises grammar, punctuation, spelling, repetition, word choice, and consistency issues. For example, if a character has a birthday in May in one part of the book, and the character has a birthday party in December, the copyeditor would catch that kind of mistake.
A proofreader reads through the final version of the book, essay, or writing looking for any typos or formatting problems. This person will look for last minute mistakes before you hit the “Publish” button.
What will I proofread?
I have edited and proofread different kinds of writing over the years. Here are some examples of what I will proofread:
- blog posts
- web content
- much more!
I prefer to make corrections using Word’s Track Changes, but I will consider other ways. Please ask.
NOTE: Even though I’ve done editing in the past, I’m primarily focusing on proofreading now. I will take an occasional editing project. Again, please feel free to ask.
What is my proofreading rate?
I want to make proofreading as affordable as I can. Depending upon how many times you want me to read through your manuscript, my rate is different.
- Read through two times, $.004 per word
- Read through one time, $.003 per word
I’m always willing to work with your budget as long as it’s reasonable.
What kinds of writing I will do?
Are you wondering how you can keep up with your blog while you work an 8 to 5 job? Maybe you need articles for your job’s website? Here’s what I enjoy writing:
- blog posts
- web content
- much more!
What are my writing rates?
My rates for writing depend upon the project and how much ongoing work you’ll give me. I sometimes charge by the word (preferably at least $.05 per word) and sometimes by the project. Please contact me to discuss your writing project at michele@michelemathews dot com.
What else do you need to know about my services?
I’ll give you an initial quote based on an estimated word count. The final invoice will be adjusted and will reflect the final word count. For all jobs, I ask that 50 percent be paid up front before I begin with the rest due when I finish the job.
Payment will be made through PayPal at michele@michelemathews dot com. I can send an invoice if you like. Please provide me with an email address.
Please allow two weeks for me to proofread your novel and one week for short stories, novellas, and other short writings. Writing projects will vary depending upon what I’m doing.
Rush jobs are charged an extra $100.
I like getting new clients so please feel free to refer your friends. You’ll be rewarded with 10 percent off your next project.
