BB Virtual Assistant for Authors (Virtual Assistants)

Would you like to do less admin and spend more time writing? Hiring me as your trustworthy, dependable and efficient Virtual Assistant is the answer! By choosing me as your Virtual Assistant instead of one from a large website agency, you are getting personalized service instead of a faceless person overseas.

Let me help you with your backend work so you can concentrate on creating your story. I have over 20 years of experience in admin work and can tackle any project, large or small. I do recognize cost concerns are an issue, especially with independent authors, and I will always be sensitive to that fact.

You can use my services ala carte or by contract for a specified amount of hours each week. Please get in touch with me and we'll work together to come up with a cost-effective, time-saving plan.

Some of the services I offer include:

 General Business Services - Email management, social media management, scheduling, ARC distribution and follow-up, affiliate link admin and more.
 Publicity and Promotion – Blogger outreach, social media ads, giveaway promotions, newsletter creation and distribution and brand merchandise creation.
 Book Services - Beta reading, proofreading, cover coordination, a series bible and release day planning.
 Research - General or exhaustive research, i.e. character occupations, following threads on social media and summarizing key points, search terms, successful keywords for listing your book, etc.
 Virtual Assistant Rescue – When you’re so immersed in your writing you forget the world around you, I can help. Did you forget to buy a present for your niece’s birthday? I got you. Do you need meal ideas for your family for the week so they actually eat? I’m on it. I will help with just about anything you need done so you can keep writing.

Although I will gladly work with any author, my preferred genres are romance, young adult, contemporary and biography.

If you would like more information, check me out on my website or email me at [email protected]


Cheers,

Just for Fun, Free Edits (Beta Reading, Manuscript Critique)

Discussion thread
Email
Send PM
It's just for fun that I want to try and edit a few book manuscripts.

I'm not a highly seasoned or professional editor.

I'm a reader, and I'm disappointed with all the simple mistakes I see in Kindle books.

So I want to just try my hand at reading some book material before it reaches the final version for the reader, and helping authors to be aware of mostly simple, and possibly not-so-simple, mistakes that will show up in their work.

All my work is going to be for free.

I'll do any reading, and then line edit (theme or topic-related edits) or copy edit (grammar, etc.,) of any material.

My background is in medical reporting, technical/instructional journals, crypt-analysis, linguistic translation and interpretation, and Asian-focused studies.

I will read anything, fiction or non-fiction.

I will read any genre - there is no genre that I will not read.

I only have facility to work with MS Word documents. I will prepare a Word document with tracked changes for you.

If you'd like this free service, with no $$ obligations, PM me on this KBoard.

Your work is confidential and will not be copied or shared in any way except with you.

I am maybe not the best at this, but I'd like to think I might be able to help some folks, since I enjoy reading so much of your collective work.

Thanks in advance for any interest.

My name is Alex McGilvery. I've been an author and reviewer for more than 25 years. In the last few years I have started to offer content and structural editing since my beta reads all turned into that anyway. I will read your book and make detailed margin notes about technical issues, character development, dialogue and more. I will also give you extended comments at the end of the book on character arc, plot arc, tone and consistency of your book. My goal is to help you to make your writing as engaging and high quality as possible.

I will do the first 5k of your book free as a test edit. Only $300 for a 100k book. If your book is much above or below that word count, we will negotiate a price.

If you have trouble writing those pesky blurbs, for $50 US I will mentor you through the process of writing an effective blurb for your book.

Book now to reserve your slot.

Hello lovely authors!

My name is Beth, I'm a proofreader, and I'm here to make your book as perfect as possible.

You are an indie author balancing your life, your family, your career. You put countless hours into writing your books, and you're excited to get them into your readers' hands. You want them to experience your babies as you do: flawless. However you don't necessarily have access to a publishing house's resources when you're self-publishing.

Until now.

I have several years of experience working in the publishing industry, with many spent working full-time as a proofreader for Harlequin. Let me use my rigorous in-house training to provide the highest quality proofread and polish your work until it shines.

I will turn your book around at a record pace because let's face it, your readers are waiting! I will save you from any less-than-stellar reviews complaining about that one (delicious) time you wrote scone instead of sconce. I will never overstep, never alter your voice, and never suggest a big change without an explanation.

I am currently taking on new clients and while I have a ton of experience with romance, I am thrilled to work on any genre you've written.

My rate is $0.005 USD/word and as a special for new clients, I'm offering 10% off your first book. Just mention that you found me through KBoards.

Please feel free to get in touch to schedule a project and thank you for your consideration!
