Product Description
Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

    • A Fading Street Publishing Services
The services we offer now have been added to so I  thought I'd rephrase the original message to bring it up to date. You can see more details about basic services on the website
www.fadingstreet.com or PM me or contact direct publishing@fadingstreet.com

The services we offer for Kboards authors are-

Substantive Editing
We are  now offering  Substantive Editing but in our case we also are offering, as part of this a separate package deal to include the Copy-Editing and Proofreading stages as part of the process so not only will you get a chapter by chapter report on things like plotting/pacing/character development and the effectiveness of both narrative AND dialog sections, a complete breakdown of the main characters, their actions and interactions and where these could be improved. A breakdown of the descriptions used within the book and any suggestions for how they could be improved and of course praise for those parts that work well already :). No in-book editing at this stage although there will be comments left throughout to explain or add to what is mentioned in the report. For us the key consideration in all editing work is that it is your story and it is told in your voice. That is something at the forefront of all suggestions we make, to maintain your voice.
Rate $0.008 per word or a package deal with a full substantive edit plus copy editing plus a final proofread at $0.01 per word for the package.

Ghostwriting
We now offer a ghostwriting service. If you need a sequel, a prequel,  a series continuing, have a book that is half-finisihed or just need some help maintaining you output, then we can help you out. I have various writing samples I am happy to send to any prospective clients plus I also offer a free 500 word sample of writing based on a scene you suggest so you know that what you're seeing is tailor made for you. Every word you would get from us in a ghostwriting job would be original, will be proofread and will be delivered to you ready to use. NDA agreements are not a problem although we do offer complete discretion to all clients on all projects no matter what. We work in 10000 word milestones.The reason for that is to give any clients the opportunity to review things and suggest alterations if necessary (unless you only want a sub-10000 word story) and the rate is $150 per 10000 words delivered. Genres-any fiction genre including erotica.

More specialized services

Rough Draft Edit
Do you just want to write and never worry about punctuation and sentence structure etc. Send us you rough draft, it really doesn't matter how rough and we will go through and edit in any missing punctuation, make sure that sentences are properly constructed and you will get back a document back that you can then start work on revising to beat it into proper shape. Of course while we are straightening out your rough draft, you can be free to write the next book ;) This service is ideal for anyone using speech recognition because you don't have to worry about dictating punctuation etc but if you type and want to be able to speed up your production this works for that scenario too. Rate $0.003 per word.

Audio Transcription
If you are a dictator of words, we can transcribe your audio files into MS Word ensuring again that all punctuation is correct and sending back a proofread, clean document. We can work on a chapter at a time or a full book or anything between the two. This service we also offer for handwritten manuscripts that need typing up into a Word document. Write it, scan it and send it over and we will type it up for you.
Rate $0.003 per word for any length of book

Rewriting
Have you written a story in 1st POV present tense, that you wish you'd written in 3rd POV past tense. Is English not your first language. We can help. We will rewrite an existing manuscript, tense changes,POV changes or writing it into idiomatic English while keeping the story as you wrote it and providing you a clean proofread document in return. This can be a very long process and is very time-consuming, particularly changing the tense of a book so the rate for this work reflects that at $0.004 per word.

Audio Book Proofing
We will ensure that your audio recording accurately reflects your manuscript and advise of any errors or omissions.
Rate $12 per audio hour

and of course the bedrock of the business

Beta Read @ $0.00075 per word-two or three page report.
Proofread @ $0.0015 per word- please note this a proper proofread that will be done without software which will not catch many errors and remember, it's not how many errors somebody finds in your book, it's the number they miss that counts.
Copy Edit @ $0.0035 per word-a thorough copy edit, again no software.

Package deal for one of each of the above three stages at $0.004 per word so Beta Read, Copy Edit, Proofread and we will even format your book in Word for e-book publishing if you need it.

All rates shown are current as at 14th November 2017 and supersede any other rates mentioned throughout the thread up to this date.

With all projects we always offer ongoing support so if you want an opinion or help with a blurb or a cover, or explanations for any of the editing suggestions, we are almost always available and at no extra charge.

Slots available now, just get in touch.

Just had a manuscript beta read by A Fading Street and I couldn't be more pleased. All the questions I had were answered and then some. The feedback I received pinpointed what worked as well as what didn't and what could be improved on. I can now use this info to make my story better.

Fast friendly service, thorough feedback, fast turnaround time--I will definitely be back!

Thanks to TiffanyNicole for taking the time to leave this message. It is much appreciated. It's good that you found the feedback useful and constructive and good luck with the book when it sees the light of day :)

If anyone would like to take advantage  of the offer  we are currently discounting 50% off for all first time clients on either a Beta Read or Proofreading/Copy Editing.

A 100000 word MS would be $45 instead of $90 for a Beta Read with a full written report and a similar size MS for Proofreading would be $200 instead of $400. Take advantage while the going is good.

On a first come first served basis we have decided to offer one FREE Beta Read again this week so if it helps anybody out, fire in those messages :)

Many thanks to Graham and the folks at A Fading Street for their beta read of my book. Turnaround time was super quick and the report I got back was very thorough.

Graham made a lot of great suggestions and gave me hope that my first excursion into publishing my baby won't be a total train wreck (yeah, I've got the first time jitters). Thanks so much, Graham!

Generally with lots of red marks on it in my experience Robb ;)
Seriously though, glad to be able to work with you on your project and if anyone is interested I still have a slot left for proofreading/copyediting this week and for the next couple of weeks If you get in quick I might be tempted to extend the 50% discount a while longer

Thanks Robb it really was an absolute pleasure working on the book. I enjoyed the story immensely and with any luck it will go on to sell in shed loads.

Slots still available in November and December if anyone is looking for a quick and accurate job with copy editing or proofreading at reasonable rates.

I am more of a lurker than a poster usually but I wanted to leave a quick comment about A Fading Street. I recently took the decision to write in a different, somewhat niche, genre (gay shifter romance with alpha-omega dynamics) and lacked anyone I felt confident could beta read with an objective eye.

The feedback I received from Graham was comprehensive and constructive, commenting on all the important aspects of the story's structure with reference to the genre. It highlighted potential issues that I hadn't picked up on. The report was delivered within the time frame agreed and was more detailed than I had been expecting. I would definitely use this service again.

Many thanks Riven I'm glad you felt the service was worth the cost. As a very straight and very human, human, reading about gay werewolf shapeshifters was as I said to you somewhat outside of my comfort zone but when push comes to shove it was a story that was interesting to read to analyse the structure rather than the subject and I enjoyed doing that.

Still slots available November and December for anyone in need of copy editing or proofreading at reasonable rates with a quick and accurate turnaround.

Looks like you were never officially welcomed, Graham, so here it is.

Also, to Robb and other satisfied customers...we appreciate member feedback on these vendor threads..but posting here just to bump the thread for the vendor isn't allowed, sorry.  That would make you part of his team, and you are considered one with him then for bumping purposes--neither of you would be allowed to post within seven days of each other. (Note our bumping rule explained below.)  I've accordingly removed a couple of posts.  Please PM me if you have any questions.

Welcome to the KB Writers Cafe!

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 Listing, found here:

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 wil be removed. Please bookmark this thread so that you can find it again to post to. And, you may not make back-to-back posts to the thread within seven days. If someone responds (such as this post), you may reply but otherwise must wait seven days, thanks!

Due to a last minute postponement on what will be a long book I find myself at a loose end next week so if anybody has any pre-Christmas editing, proofreading or audio book proofing needs doing, then I'm available for work.

January 2017 is filling up too so if you need work doing, feel free to send in a first chapter and I will be happy to do a test edit so you can see what I offer and how I work.

I always try to go above and beyond expectations so why not give it a try :)

Contact details in the sig below or you can mail me direct publishing@fadingstreet.com or send me a PM through KBoards.

Re: Editing and Proofreading BARGAIN PACKAGE RATES for January 2017 Bookings
« Reply #20 on: December 28, 2016, 03:36:12 AM »
In an effort to fill up available slots for January 2017 I have come up with what I hope is a bargain package for anyone out there in need of editing, beta reading or proofreading.
All of the individual elements of the package are available separately at normal rates so this is the package rate and consists of

Beta Read with a full written report
Copy Edit/Line edit
Final Proofread once changes are made.
Formatting of the book for ebook publication (this would be standard formatting with title page, working table of contents, copyright statement, links to other books or mailing list). This would be nothing fancy, just a basic formatting that would allow for immediate publishing on Amazon Kindle.

The idea behind the service is to allow an author to go from a basic manuscript to a finished product in easy steps with a sympathetic editor and a friendly shoulder to cry on :)

The rate for the complete package would be $0.004 per word all in and will apply to all slots booked during the next two weeks so if you're not going to be ready until February, book a slot in the next two weeks and you will still be able to take advantage of the offer.

If you purchased all of the elements separately the cost would be USD 5.75c per word so you are saving 30% by buying a package plus you get the formatting into the bargain.

Example costs

20000 word novella $80 all in
50000 word novel $200 all in
70000 word novel $280 all in

Any genre.
Sample edits welcomed.

Contact me via the Yellow Pages link in my signature or direct to publishing@fadingstreet.com or PM via this board/thread.

Tell your friends :) and have a Happy and creative New Year

All right, so I had to come in and talk about this. Absolute compulsion on my end.

We're not even going to get into the fact that Graham is severely undercharging for how much he does. It just needs to be said.

I went into the editing process very antsy, afraid I was going to clash with anyone I worked with because my personality has a habit of hitting people rough, and I just didn't think I'd get along with someone well enough to work on a creative project. Well, I was wrong, hands down. He was so pleasant, so kind--and I do want to emphasis that there's a difference between polite niceness and genuine kindness--went above and beyond the call, understood and matched my writing voice effortlessly, and was available to answer any questions I had with a rapid response time even though we live in wildly different time zones. And I had a lot of questions, and my own fair amount of quirks, and he was so kind and thorough. I felt safe and secure, and I trusted him, and that trust was warranted. It's obvious throughout every step of the process that you're working with a person who cares about your book being its absolute best, not just someone looking to get paid.

The turnaround time is excellent, impeded only by own bad habit of getting an email and thinking I've responded to it when I haven't.

I'll say it again for emphasis, really, above and beyond the call. Having a great editor who understands your voice as an editor, and is able to work with you on the ridiculous schedule that being a creative requires, is one of the most important things as an author. I cannot recommend his services enough.

All right, so I had to come in and talk about this. Absolute compulsion on my end.

We're not even going to get into the fact that Graham is severely undercharging for how much he does. It just needs to be said.

I went into the editing process very antsy, afraid I was going to clash with anyone I worked with because my personality has a habit of hitting people rough, and I just didn't think I'd get along with someone well enough to work on a creative project. Well, I was wrong, hands down. He was so pleasant, so kind--and I do want to emphasis that there's a difference between polite niceness and genuine kindness--went above and beyond the call, understood and matched my writing voice effortlessly, and was available to answer any questions I had with a rapid response time even though we live in wildly different time zones. And I had a lot of questions, and my own fair amount of quirks, and he was so kind and thorough. I felt safe and secure, and I trusted him, and that trust was warranted. It's obvious throughout every step of the process that you're working with a person who cares about your book being its absolute best, not just someone looking to get paid.

Thank you so much, I'm blushing here  ;D I enjoyed working with you immensely and hopefully your first book will be the success it deserves to be.

Graham was fast, friendly, and actually found inconsistencies others didn't while proofreading--going beyond what was expected from the job! I totally recommend his services and will probably contact him again for my next book.  :)

Hi Priscila and thank you for those kind words. It is much appreciated indeed. I really enjoyed working on your book.

I just need to add that there are still slots available for the package deal in January/February

Beta Read with a full written report
Copy Edit/Line edit
Final Proofread once changes are made.
Formatting of the book for ebook publication (this would be standard formatting with title page, working table of contents, copyright statement, links to other books or mailing list). This would be nothing fancy, just a basic formatting that would allow for immediate publishing on Amazon Kindle.

The idea behind the service is to allow an author to go from a basic manuscript to a finished product in easy steps with a sympathetic editor and a friendly shoulder to cry on :)

The rate for the complete package would be $0.004 per word all in and will apply to all slots booked during the next two weeks so if you're not going to be ready until February, book a slot in the next two weeks and you will still be able to take advantage of the offer.

If you purchased all of the elements separately the cost would be USD 5.75c per word so you are saving 30% by buying a package plus you get the formatting into the bargain.

Example costs

20000 word novella $80 all in
50000 word novel $200 all in
70000 word novel $280 all in

Any genre.
Sample edits welcomed.

Tell your friends :) and have a Happy and creative New Year
