New Season, Updated Rates

Featured

It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? You’ll see that I’ve updated my Rates page. Nothing too major, just a return to the original .007 per word rate for longer copyediting jobs. However, I now offer 10% discounts to clients who find me through Kboards or who are members of the Wide for the Win group on Facebook, a group I really recommend for authors who want to take their books wide and make it work financially for them. I try to read the group posts as much as I can, myself! You’ll find the latest info there on Ingram for print, or newer platforms like Radish.

Proofreading is now back to costing .004 a word, as well.

I hope everyone is looking forward (or bracing themselves) to getting back out there after this rough pandemic we’ve had, whatever that means to you.

Please feel free to contact me for editorial work. The Rates or Contact page works best for that. Thanks!

Pandemic Time—Still Open for Business!

Aside

When I last posted, we weren’t in the middle of a pandemic. Now we indisputably are, and things have changed tremendously. I hope everyone is staying safe, staying solvent, and doing as well as can be expected in this difficult time. I’m grateful for my small pool of clients and will continue to do business, but I realize that most folks have more on their minds than paying for editing.

That being said, I’ve added a great item to my Resources page: the abundantly bearded David Gaughran, who is always full of useful, topical info and guidance on all things indie, came up with a new, updated list of the Best Promo Sites in 2020. Resources change constantly—longtime review site Red City Review has just announced it is closing down, by the way—so it is good to have David’s trimmed-down list going forward rather than the much older link I had posted. Your mileage may vary. For example, I have never had much luck with Freebooksy and Robin Reads, but the BookBub gods have smiled upon me, so far.

Don’t hesitate to get in contact if there is anything regarding editing or proofreading I can do for you, even later in the year.
