Hello. I'm a Big Six pro editor looking to expand my indie client list now that I'm permanently working from home. The list of books I've worked on would be several hundred titles long, but you can look up a couple, such as The Man I Fell In Love With by Kate Field (HarperCollins) and Enemies of the State by Tal Bauer (formally NSP, now indie).

For proofreading (SPaG, basic flow, consistency), it's .004/word and a quick turnaround. Usually 2 or 3 days from the start date I suggest.

For full editing (SpaG, flow, consistency, language, pace, characterisation, plot, themes, tightening, expanding), it's .008/word. Turnaround entirely depends on schedule and the level of editing required. But I'm pretty quick regardless.

Payment is made via direct bank deposit and paid AFTER work is complete. I absolutely do not like owing money should something come up, so I complete the project before taking 100% payment. It also eliminates the need for PayPal, etc.

I edit both American and British English. Most genres are okay, but I'll let you know if I can't vibe with yours. Please just ask if you have any other questions. Thanks!

Greetings, April Anderson! 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, found here: http://www.kboards.com/yp/. 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 will be removed. Please bookmark this thread so that you can find it again when you want to post.

You may not make back-to-back posts to the thread within seven days. If someone responds (as I'm doing with this post), you may reply to them, but otherwise you must wait seven days. Any pattern of posting designed to artificially bump your thread to the top of the forum is prohibited. Please note that very short or (one- or two-word) posts with no meaningful information are discouraged and may be deleted at the moderators' discretion.

Lastly, your posts and images will need to meet our "forum decorum" guidelines, which is the case for every member.

You may find that members ask searching questions -- about how your service works, for example, or what they will get for their money, or whether your service adheres to Amazon's terms of service. Such "vetting" is a common here and can be rigorous.

Note that members are allowed to provide civil and honest feedback about your service in this thread. That includes sharing both positive and negative experiences/interactions they've had with you or your service. You may respond to criticism in a civil manner, but name-calling, badgering, accusations of lying, and other breaches of forum decorum can lead to loss of vendor posting privileges.

Any and all disputes between you and your clients should be handled off-site.

Thanks,
Becca

Note that this welcome does not constitute an endorsement or vetting of a service by KBoards. Members should do due diligence when considering using a service.

Vendor threads are permitted in the Writers' Cafe not only as a form of advertising that benefits vendors but also to provide one location where reviews of vendors can be concentrated and more easily brought to the attention of the whole community. For this reason, we make a reasonable attempt to maintain threads even for vendors with whom multiple customers report negative experiences.
