Need Editing? Now’s the Time…

2012 found me tied to my desk seven days a week, working hard on manuscripts. It was to the point that I severely cut back my formatting services because I had so much editing to do. Clients were having longer wait times due to the sheer volume of work I had to get through.

However, the rush is over. If you’ve been waiting to get your manuscript edited, now’s the time. My queue is almost empty, and turn arounds are much quicker. All you need to do is use our Contact form to send me the details of your book and I’ll be happy to give you a quote.

We are happy to work with payment plans, and we always offer a 30% discount up front for payment in full. You can find our rates here. So don’t publish or submit your manuscript without a thorough editing. You can see a listing of some of the books I’ve edited here. I’d be happy to help polish your manuscript. Well? What are you waiting for?

Shhh! Can’t Keep it a Secret!

Okay, I wasn’t going to post about our unpublished bundle sale, but dang it, I want to share the opportunity.

I don’t know exactly how long we’ll keep doing this special, so if it sounds good, jump on it, okay?

Normally, I charge by the word count when I edit or proofread. Not with this bundle special. This is why it is such a good deal.

In this bundle, you get the opportunity to have your book:

  • Line edited
  • Formatted as an ebook
  • Adorned with a book cover all its own
  • Free half hour chat with John Rakestraw on publishing, marketing, etc.

That’s right… all three services for one price. Just what is that price, you might ask? I won’t make you scroll down and sign up before I tell you… I hate that. :(

All this for only $650.

That’s right… just $650. Considering that some books cost that much or more just to edit, this is a real deal. Invest in your book and get it the polish and prep it needs to face the world.

Contact me using our form in the menu above and mention our $650 special, ‘kay?

The fine print: Offer valid on books that are 85,000 words or less. Longer books will cost a bit more. Contact me for a quote. Books should be in good shape; don’t send a book that needs major work, because all this offer gives is line editing, not full content editing. Books with tight deadlines will have a rush fee added to the total. Cannot be used in conjunction with any other special.

What Do You Need?

I was thinking about how to meet the needs of our clients today, and it occurred to me, I should ask writers what they are looking for in an editing service! So, this is your chance: tell me what you want in an editor. We will try to incorporate as many of your suggestions into our service as is feasible. Please be realistic in your requests… don’t tell me you want free advanced editing for everyone, for example. As much as I would love to do that, I also have a family that really likes having shelter from the weather and food to eat. However, there must be many ways we can meet your needs. I am not averse to offering specials, as you know, and I am open to trying many things. So… what do you need? What do you want? I would like to tailor our services to the needs of writers as much as possible.

Oh, maybe I should offer a prize to the best suggestion! How about a free line edit for the best suggestion? Please leave your suggestions here in the comments. I will announce the winner of the free line edit on March 31.

So, get out there and share this. Tell your writing friends. This is the chance to help create the editorial service of your dreams… and you could win a free edit. :)

WINNER: The winner of our free line edit is Suzie Ivy! :) Congratulations, Suzie! :)
