To everyone who's been waiting for the special offer, here it is! Submit your book for proofreading today and pay only $50, no matter how big it is.

Please check this post for more details and head over to my website to submit your book.

Please notice that the special offer is for when I have a little free time in between regular orders, so I can only give you an approximate time frame (about 7 days). You'll still have to send me the book and payment right away so I can start reading it as soon as I have the chance. Everything else will be the same, and I'll do my best to help you find every single error in your manuscript.

Good luck!  ;)

Alexa was one of two proofreaders for my recent book, and I was happy with her work. It still blows my mind that after a long edit and multiple passes that things are still missed, but Alexa found them. She was quick and easy to work with, and I look forward to using her services again on the next book!

If it's urgent, I can proof your book after the one I'm reading now. It'll take 3-4 days. I've checked out your sample, and it looks clean enough. Please submit your book via the website, and I'll get back to you right away! :)

I have a question. How would you feel about leaving comments as you proofread? Not changing things as an editor might do, but pointing out things that you think need some work?

You mean like a beta reader? Proofing included, or just critique? When I proofread, I always point out plot inconsistencies or anything weird, really.

Just a proofreader who leaves notes as well. I suppose that kind of is a bit like a beta reader who proofreads.
I'm just sadly trying to find someone who can do what my last one did. He used to leave humerous comments about my plot holes and when someone did things out of character. That sort of thing.

Oh, sure! When it comes to books, I'm pretty critical, so if there's anything even slightly strange or silly, I can't ignore it. I just usually keep these things to myself  :D
Btw, your monster post on keywords changed my life  :-*  ;D (and 3 more authors').

That's great. My book is 500,000 words. Is that okay? LOL   It's an omnibus.

As long as it's ready for proofing, and you're ready to pay $650 for it and wait a month, I've got nothing against it  :D That's basically 5 books. Plus, I have regulars every month, so I'd have to put it down every now and then.

If you need me, just use the website to submit your monster book!

I'm leaving on vacation, so I'll be unavailable for 10 days or so, but feel free to submit your books via the website.
The number of submissions for September and October will be limited to 4, so please book a slot in advance, if you need me. (I have regulars who submit a book every month, too).
Submissions for August are now closed.
