I have proofreading spots available June 12 and beyond.

My beta reading partner has some slots in May, but she is booked through June. She is booking July and beyond.

Happy writing!

Looks like you missed out on our formal welcome, Anna. Here it is!

You're welcome to promote your business and website here in the Writers' Cafe!

Now that you have an official thread, you'll want to add your listing to our Yellow Pages, found here: http://www.kboards.com/yp/. The listing is free to KB members and is completely self-service; you can add and edit your listing from the page. More information on our Yellow Pages listing can be found here.

In your thread here, we ask that the same basic rules be followed as we have for authors in the Book Bazaar: you may have this one thread about your service and must post to it rather than start a new thread each time. New threads about the service will be removed. Please bookmark this thread so that you can find it again when you want to post. You may not make back-to-back posts to the thread within seven days. If someone responds (as I'm doing with this post), you may reply to them, but otherwise you must wait seven days. Please note that very short or (one- or two-word) posts with no meaningful information are discouraged and may be deleted at the moderators' discretion. Lastly, your posts and images will need to meet our "forum decorum" guidelines, which is the case for every member.

Note that members are allowed to provide civil and honest feedback about your service to this thread. This feedback may include criticisms as well as kudos. You may respond in a civil manner. Members may also ask questions -- about how the service works, for example, or what they will get for their money, or whether your service adheres to Amazon's terms of service.

Disputes between you and clients should be handled off-site.

Thanks,
Becca

From now until the end of September, I'm throwing in a free book blurb evaluation. Now, I won't write your book blurb, but I might rewrite it. As of now, I'm not offering this as a separate service. Additionally, I will only consider this service if I'd already read the book. Going in blind on a book blurb is not something I feel comfortable with.

I'm now booking proofreading and/or copyediting spots August 4th and beyond.

If you have a smaller project (50K or less), I have some flexibility in July.

Do I contact you or your partner for the beta reading of a Chick-Lit novel? I had a look at your website and couldn't tell if it was you doing the beta reading or not, so sorry if I'm being a moron and misread something!

Thanks.

You are not being a moron! I've been transitioning away from beta reading and only do it when I have extra time. My focus on is proofreading and copy editing. A girl has got to pay the bills and I can't do it on beta reading alone.

Last fall I took on a beta reading partner who has taken the lion's share of beta reading jobs. I can't say enough great things about her. So if you're interested, you can contact her directly. Her email is ratnareads (at) gmail.com.

Does she have a separate website for her services?  (So I can bookmark it for when the time comes)

Not yet, but she's talked about it.

Thanks for the speedy reply!  I'm not at proofreading stage yet, otherwise I'd hit you up too. Right now what I need is for someone to tell me my story makes sense... God help them.  :P

I can't believe August is here! Where does the time go?

I've decided to extend my free bonus book blurb help until the end of December on all proofreading and copyediting jobs.

I have these spots available in September and October:

September 4
September 14
September 25
October 6
October 26

I've got very flexible availability in November but only a few spots in December.

I can be reached at annaalbo(at)mymts.net
