      Got my line edit back after just 1 week. Very pleased with the service. Caught a lot of stuff that I had missed even after two very thorough readings. Will definitely be using again.

      Just got Roxana's edit back and was again impressed with her excellent work (this is the second time I've used her services). She caught things I would never have found. Looking forward to working with her again.

      I hired Roxanna to proofread my newest WIP. My regular proofreader was suddenly unavailable and time was running out. Roxanna was thorough and she returned the novel in half the time (I can now meet my release date!!!). She spotted errors that my editor and I had completely missed. I would definitely recommend her.

      Roxanna saved my tail. My previously scheduled proofreader fell through at the last minute. Roxanna agreed to get my novel done on short notice, and in half her speedy turn-around time (with an entirely fair rush fee). I am grateful to her for identifying typos and (and some helpful editing suggestions) that numerous beta-readers, editors, and even my eagle eyed-mother missed. Wonderful service.

      Once more throwing out props to Roxana and her proofreading.

      First, it was done ahead of schedule. Second, it was a last minute request, and third, she went above and beyond again.

      Great job and thanks again, Roxana!

      Hello, Roxana,
      Fantastic job done by Roxana!!!!!
      I sent two books for proofing and I received both in 7 days with corrections. I am totally satisfied with the job because months back I have been done these books with "freelancers" but not satisfied.
      Surely I recommend Roxana to my friends.

      Have used Booksfreelance five times now as an additional proof to my manuscripts, and Roxana has always been fantastic. A speedy service that is great value for money.

      I definitely recommend them.

      Roxana was fast and very easy to work with. Thanks!

      I used Roxana for my latest historical romance release. I have a set of proofreaders but am a messy writer so I like to have several eyes look over my books. Turned a 50k book around under a week and will use again.
      LilyBLily said:
      Roxana did one just before Christmas, super fast. Found more than a dozen items, of which half a dozen were those really tough typos of the word being correctly spelled but extra to the sentence. For the price, well worth it.
      Val Hunter said:
      I just wanted to chime in and give a big thanks to Roxana and her team.

      She's proofed 3 books for me, and these were not short books. Yet each one was done in a week's time, and errors were caught. I am phenomenally pleased with the results.

      Spelling errors, missing punctuation, quotations, and duplicate words or sentences, the things your average reader is likely to pick up on and care about, are all things Roxana caught when I sent my books her way!
      A.G.B said:
      This is a fantastic service. Just got my manuscript back very quickly and with a very thorough proofread completed on it.

      Thank you Roxana!

      Roxana did my novella for me! She was quicker than I expected, and caught a bunch of mistakes I haven't seen through my revisions <3
      thesios said:
      I used Roxana and was very pleased with the results.

      She/they proofread 2 of my current stories and found some issues.

      I would say that is good work.

      I am going to try her editing next ;)
      DLBarbur said:
      This is an outstanding value. I received my manuscript back six days after I sent it.

      I'm only 1/4 of a way through the manuscript, but I've found numerous corrections that were spot on, and have made my book better.

      Once again, I learn I'm terrible at editing my own work!

      I'll be using Roxana's service again for my next book.
      RPatton said:
      Coming out of lurker mode to add my recommendation to Roxana. I used her proofreading services, and she exceeded my expectations. If I had to leave a grade, this would be a solid A from a tough grader.

      First, whoever proofread my book wasn't looking out only for typos, it also included other suggestions. I'd say that this is definitely more Proofreading on Steroids than straight proofreading. Second, the turn around time is brilliant. It's speedy and yet I wouldn't say that the work suffers for the speed.

      Not only would I recommend this service to others, but I plan on continuing to use her proofreading services for future projects.
      jlstovall4 said:
      Ok, what can I say, but Roxana did a good job.

      My second book has been proofread 4 times already. I sent her 75% of the book as a test (approx 60k words). I did make a few upgrades so I figured I'd give her a try. She found 15 legitimate errors and 2 errors that were more preference and could be read either way. None would be easy for a program to find (at least in my opinion). So I am forced to give her a thumbs up! ;D I'm not a newbie and have been on the kboards for over a year.

      Great job. I'm not sure how she's doing it for such a low price, but so far things look good for her company.

      Used their service for proofreading a novella. I gave them a super short deadline and they more than delivered. Was 2 or 3 days I received my manuscript back. Definitely happy with the quick turn around that kept me on schedule. Thank you!
      Steven Slavick said:
      I sent out my 75,000 word novel for a proofread and received it back 3 days later. Around a dozen errors were found, mostly issues that spell check would not have found. I'm incredibly satisfied. I'll definitely use them again!
      Anna Drake said:
      Roxana did one of my books for me. I am very pleased. The manuscript was returned ahead of schedule, and her work was most professional. I will use her service again. Thank you, Roxana.

      I sent in work last week, and it was done two days early. I am going through the corrections now, and I'm pleased with the work.
      Erratic said:
      I sent in one of my books and it turned out great. My 60k MS only took 3 days, and they found nearly 300 errors! I'm going to send another book. Thank you for this service. :)
      FFJ said:
      Sent two stories that had previously been proofread. Got them back in three days and I'm very satisfied. It's always good to have an extra pair of eyes.
      Thanks Roxana and the team!
      austenlover said:
      Roxana proofread my novella and only took a few days. Very happy with the results and will definitely be using this service again.
      Marcus Herzig said:
      I handed in a 110k novel. It was supposed to take 7 days. I got it back after 4 and I'm very pleased with the result. I will definitely use this service again. In fact, I just bought the 3-book package. ;D
      Scrapper78 said:
      Sent in a 106k manuscript. Got it back ahead of schedule.

      Work is good, clean, professional. She found quite a few mistakes.
      While the usual spelling errors were picked up, she also found:
      -incorrect word substitutions,
      -missing articles
      -missing conjunctions
      -Missing or incorrectly employed commas and other punctuation.

      I noticed she did not find any issues with my dialog/quotation mark punctuation. Other editors have nitpicked that in my previous books. I'm not sure if I have simply altered my style to reflect this or if she used a different standard. Going over it now, I'm inclined to think that it's me and not her, though.

      Bottom line?
      It it is well worth fifteen or thirty, or even a hundred dollars. Fastest and easiest draft clean-up I've ever seen. If you have a good manuscript that needs a cleaning? I absolutely recommend her.

      First manuscript came back several days ahead of schedule. Very satisfied with the proofed work!

      Just chiming in to say that Roxana got it done and back to me in a little under three days, and it looks good. I plan to send the next two books her way.
      T E Scott Writer said:
      Just popping in to say really pleased with the proofread, I like to think my manuscript was pretty clean but Roxanna picked up some mistakes including some wonky pronouns and a fair few random commas. Quick and professional, definitely worth the fee.
      UghSoUncool said:
      Roxana is amazing! I sent her a 50K manuscript and she had it back to me within 3 days. The manuscript is clear of all typos and she even caught some awkward phrasing. I completely recommend this service and suggest you take her up on her $15 limited offer because she should definitely be charging more! ;D
      Tim McGregor said:
      Roxana rocks! She returned my 60K manuscript within 3 days, catching simple typos and some grammatical gaffs of mine. Quick and efficient, couldn't ask for more. And at these introductory rates, it's a huge bargain! I'll definitely be repeat customer.
      smallblondehippy said:
      Just chipping in to say I've just used Roxana's service for two books and I'm very pleased. Very quick and efficient service - will be using again!
      baldricko said:
      Thank you, Roxana!

      There's nothing like another proof read, especially when I go back for a tinker with the story. You give excellent value. I recommend your service.
      James Ward said:
      Good service! There weren't many problems in my books - about fifteen in each. I'm pleased. I should mention that I did proofread both books very thoroughly before submitting them, so I wasn't expecting many errors.
      Nathaniel Burns said:
      I did sent my manuscripts. All of them. 32! :p Already proofread. And she still found quite a few mistakes. :eek: I completely recommend this service.

Apparently a team of proofreaders, yet no professional website, no professional email address and an offer clearly too good to be true.

Buyer beware!
I understand your concern but we are only just starting. We are working on a professional website and the rate will go up.

Meh, it's 30 bucks. I blow more than that on games.

If they don't do a good job, people will come back to this thread and say so.

Every new business has to start somewhere.

Yep. I use Gmail and Squarespace, because I don't have time to bother setting up anything more "professional." If my workload ever slows down, I might, but for now... And at first glance, the offer does seem to be on the TGTBT side, but the OP is setting limits (no box sets or collections), which is a good sign. And I think we all know the people putting up the 3000-page books aren't having them proofread, even for the low cost of $20-30. ;)

I did my first several jobs for free, specifying (as OP did) that it was only to get my foot in the door and get the word-of-mouth going before setting early rates. Caveat emptor, of course, as always, but a newcomer almost has to offer something out of the ordinary to get enough attention to get testimonials and word-of-mouth recommendations.

Good luck, OP! KBoarders are, on the whole, awesome people and great clients.

Hmm, I just thought of a great plot - this would be a great way for gamers to get 3000 pages of brand new material all stuffed together from readable books, and sue the original authors for plagiarism when they try to launch their books.

Anyone think that story will fly?

I just gave them a go. I'll report back in little over a week with the results. My girlfriend and I do an aloud readthrough when we get the file back.

No, I don't think this would fly. People would never use editing or proofreading services if this was the case. Plus, you always have copy of the email as proof.

Jeez man, it's only $30, and if it's not worth it, people will post and not use the again.

Seriously do you think that everyone who has 99 cent or even free series-entry books are scamming people?

"This author is selling a 300 page book for 99 cents??? I smell haddock!"

I am a longtime lurker but thought it might be useful to post my experience with Ebook Proofreading. I sent my file, a 96,000 word novel (hey, it said all books, right?) and got a quick reply that my file was received, so I paid with PayPal, and just a point of order here--it's 30 euro, not 30 dollars, so it cost approx $36. I got my book back today, a quick 5-day turnaround and was pleasantly surprised. She did what she said she would, efficiently, and with good cheer, so now I am dusting off some other projects to submit for proofreading. I am so pleased to have this obstacle behind me. Cheers to Roxana . . .
It was a pleasure reading your book! For your next orders please change the currency to dollars.

Thank you!

And that's why you always upload your pre-proofed book to Amazon and "save as draft."
