My business combines these skills to help you publish a cleaner, tighter novel.

My feedback is thorough and honest. I am an exacting perfectionist. I tend to be a bit of a ham. I want to be your ham! If you hire me, I will root through your manuscript like a boar in the woods, making my points with gentle humor rather than raw criticism.

Traveling Bard Publishing, created by USA Today Bestselling Author Michael James Ploof, is now seeking new fantasy and Sci-fi novels and series. No children's books please.

Michael Ploof has been self-publishing for 6 years, and making a full time living at writing for 5 years. He has hit the USA Today Bestselling list 4 times, and knows how to get other authors there as well. With the right clients, Traveling Bard Publishing's goal is to become a respected name in the future world of publishing, as well as help pave the way into the future for other indies striving to have their voices heard.

We are currently seeking series, (no standalone titles unless they can be expanded) in sci-fi and fantasy. We love other genres as well, but that is not our niche.

With our current mailing list of 20k dedicated readers, as well as a plethora of marketing know how, from blurb structure to cover art to keywords, Traveling Bard Publishing is ready to make the right series and the right author successful.

Multiple books in a series a plus. We also accept previously-published work. Far too often great writers aren't good marketers. But we can help.

Please query with the following:

To: ploofer2727@gmail.com
Subject: Book Query
Add a short bio, along with a short (less than 500 word) synopsis of your work, and the first 3 chapters.

What we can offer:

*No advance* to be clear, we are not advancing funds against future royalties.

However, we CAN provide a thorough edit of your work. A new cover sure to attract the right readers. A new blurb that will pull them in. A marketing strategy that has the long term in mind. Bookbub deals (If chosen by BB), multi-author bundle opportunities. 5 years of experience in getting you into best-sellers lists.

Traveling Bard Publishing also allows authors to retain 60% of all royalties. Which cannot be bested by the big 5, or Kindle Scout, and our titles are doing better than the average for both. You retain 100% of print and audio.

They say that only 5% of ALL books ever written sell more than 5,000 copies. ONLY 5%!

Traveling Bard Publishing has sold 5,000 copies of most of the books published under its name.

Please query per the instructions below.

Professional, affordable editing specializing in developmental editing, line editing, copyediting, and proofreading services. Rates negotiable.

I’ve been in the publishing industry for over ten years, first as a contributing writer at Writer’s Digest. I completed my BA in English with a concentration in writing at Southern New Hampshire University and got my start as an editor at Writer’s Beat Quarterly. I also edited for new and seasoned authors at J. Ellington Ashton Press before finally settling into my position as senior editor for The Oddville Press. I now run my own full-time editing and writing business at The Espresso Editor.

I am passionate about providing affordable, quality editing because I am also a devoted reader and author. Rather than show you how I would write it if it were my piece, I show you how to improve your writing in your own style. I truly enjoy editing, and I am determined to give my clients the best service in the industry.

You may contact me through my contact page or e-mail me at hollymkothe@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you!

I offer premade covers. I don't simply slap text on stock images; most of my designs are intricate composites which makes them one of a kind.

I focus mostly on thriller/action books, but I intend to cover most genres in one way or another before long.

Piotr is an avid writer and reader, having dabbed in self publishing in the not so distant past (he's still working on his writing). Amongst his many qualifications, he has majored in English. With a love for the written word in all its formats, Piotr would like to offer his editing skills to make your thesis, manuscript or short story. He is versatile and will adapt to your editing needs.

Piotr knows this by virtue of making it all the way to a Postgraduate Diploma and Masters in Social and Community Work. Piotr can work with a variety of academic disciplines, including, but not limited to, medical, dental, science, and arts. He can also help with formatting your thesis.
Short story and novel editing. Piotr has several stories up on Amazon and writes, so has a good idea about what editors are looking for in a manuscript. He can be as harsh or gentle as you need/like, and is able to do any depth of edit from a basic spelling/grammar proof right through to a deep story-doctoring blue pencil edit. Piotr is well-versed in different genre structures and as a writer/editor herself, understands about keeping authorial voice while still improving the work. He can also work within the UK/US spelling/grammar differences.

Cost is a baseline of US$25 per hour, or a price can be negotiated. if you would like to know more, get in contact with Piotr via his Younique Solutions Facebook Page or email him.

My goal is to offer affordable, quality editing to everyone.

For the past three years, I've worked as an editor and designer for one of the more successful newspapers in the state of Illinois. I'm used to make deadlines a huge priority every day. Prior to that, I was a reporter for one of the fastest growing newspapers in the county. I graduated with a degree in Media Studies, which is a diversified degree in all areas of journalism and publishing.

As a freelance copy editor, proofreader, and researcher, I provide quality work within a collaborative environment.

I edit the words, not the writer.

I specialize in copy editing fiction and non-fiction books for independent authors. I especially enjoy editing historical and speculative fiction, including romance and YA novels, but I also love to learn about real-world people and subjects via biographies, memoirs, and history books.

I am a member of Editors Canada (formerly the Editors' Association of Canada, or EAC) and filled the role of communications chair at the Toronto branch from 2014-2016. As the communications chair, I was the assistant editor for the Toronto branch's blog, BoldFace.

Free sample edit:

I am happy to provide a free sample edit of up to 5 pages from your manuscript. This allows you to see the quality of my work up front, and I can get a more accurate idea of the type of editing your project would benefit from the most.

I will also provide you with a quote for the full cost of the project, and keep you updated on my progress throughout the editing process so there are no unpleasant surprise costs at the end.

I understand that handing over your manuscript to an editor can be a scary prospect, but it's also very exciting! You've put many hours of hard work into your manuscript, and I consider it a privilege to be entrusted with helping you take it one step closer to publication.

Services:

Copy Editing (Special rate for KBoarders! - $0.011 - $0.015 CAD per word) - Editing for grammar, spelling, punctuation and other mechanics of style. I'll make sure you're using the correct "its/it's" and catch any sneaky comma splices. Depending on the project, this may also include clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, and other non-mechanical line-by-line editing. I will also do a basic fact check.

Proofreading (Special rate for KBoarders! - $0.008 - $0.012 CAD per word) - Editing for grammar, spelling, and punctuation. The manuscript has already been copy edited, so this is just one last pass to make sure no typos have been missed or unintentionally introduced before being published.

Research/Fact-Checking ($35 CAD/hr) - If you're working on a historical fiction or non-fiction manuscript, and you'd like some help with research or fact-checking, I can do the heavy lifting for you--especially when it comes to all of those library books! I will collect reputable sources and compile a comprehensive research report for you, complete with a bibliography so you can reference everything accurately.

You can find more information about my services, including testimonials from previous clients at my website: www.hkeditor.com

Feel free to email me with any questions or to request a free sample edit: heather@hkeditor.com

Whatever the scope of your project, I look forward to helping you accomplish your editorial goals!
