Hey Kboards,

I'm Bodie, and I'm an editor who specializes in working with indie authors. My services are fast, thorough, and affordable. I do line editing ($9.00/1000 words), copy editing ($6.50/1000 words), and proofreading ($4.00/1000 words). Read some testimonials from my clients below.

Not sure if I'm the right editor for you? No problem. I'll edit a free 1000-word sample of your manuscript. There's no obligation to make a purchase. New clients also get their first 10,000 words for free on projects over 50,000 words.

Check out my website at www.bdediting.com or send an email to bodie@bdediting.com for more information!

Testimonials

"I feel genuinely grateful to have had Bodie work on my manuscript. He has an eye for detail and a real feel for storytelling that helped me turn a good story into a polished manuscript. His professionalism was first rate and his work of the highest standard. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his services and will be sure to work with him again on future projects."
--Michael Hughes, author of World War 26

"Bodie did a killer job. The edits were quick, thorough, and helped bring out my voice as a writer. Personally, I consider myself to be a bit of a grammar snob, so I have high standards for editors. Bodie met them all. Highly recommended. Oh, and the style sheet he provided was something I had never seen another editor do, but I loved it."
--Stuart Thaman, international best-selling author of The Goblin Wars series

"Bodie was a pleasure to work with. His editing was quick, thorough, and punctual. He tailors his services to provide precisely what your manuscript needs. Highly recommended."
--Nat Kozinn, author of the Chosen Different series

"I can't recommend Bodie enough for fiction works. His service was fast and efficient, and really brought out the best in my prose. I will certainly hire him again for similar projects."
--Ethan Fox, author of the World of Orochi series

"Bodie responded quickly to my email inquiry requesting rush editing services for a non-traditional project over a holiday weekend. He was prompt, insightful, and willing to offer additional help when I had follow-up questions regarding grammar and punctuation. He took great care to correct mistakes while being respectful of my informal voice and writing style. I appreciated the prompt turnaround, the transparency in pricing, and his friendly support."
--Katy Morrison, author of Murderino and Mermaids are Salty B**ches

"Bodie is an excellent editor. I'm someone who is new to the writing world, and he really helped me pinpoint my flaws and refine my novel into something great. I will be coming back to him again."
--Drake Watson, author of A Mistake for Grace

Hi, everyone!

My name is Bodie, and I provide editing and proofreading services for indie authors (starting at $2.50 USD per 1000 words). For a limited time, I'm offering new clients their first 20,000 words for free.

Nothing pulls a reader out of a book like mistakes, confusing sentences, or awkwardly worded prose. I specialize in the mechanical aspects of writing, and my services aim to polish text by correcting errors and enhancing readability. I am committed to ensuring that clients are 100% satisfied with my work. I therefore give authors three opportunities to review my edits and express any concerns. I believe that feedback and transparency of this type produces the best overall product.

My services include line editing/copyediting ($4.00 per 1000 words) and proofreading ($2.50 per 1000 words).

Get in touch:
Website: http://www.bdediting.com
E-mail: bodie@bdediting.com

Therefore, if my book is exactly 20,000 words, it would be FREE OF CHARGE? Thereafter, for 21,000 words is only $4.00?  ;D

Straight to the point, I like that.
I believe in the sun, even when it's not shining.
I believe in love, even when I don't feel it.
I believe in God, even when He is silent.
