INSECURITY: My insecurity as of now? That I won't get a single person...ever...interested in my editing services (see below). My other insecurity involves the number of unfollows I've had with my blog last month. 12. *sigh* 12 people unfollowed my blog in the span of two weeks. I've never had it drop like that so fast. It makes we wonder why. Do they not like my Wednesday posts about my series? Or do they not like me? *tear* Update: Apparently it's Blogger and Google deleting accounts and not my doing. *phew*
Well, I'm thankful for all of you and everyone who continues to follow my blog, so that helps a lot in making me smile. :)
On to the details of my editing services and the articles I need from YOU!
NEW EDITING SERVICES!
Let’s be honest...every writer needs some source of income to survive. To help me survive, and to further help my fellow writers, I’ve decided to offer editing services for a small price...and I’m starting lower than most.
Credentials: I have beta read and edited for Yolanda Renee (short stories for anthologies and blog posts), Tammy Theriault (Novel), Loni Townsend (This World Bites/novella), and several others.
I edit in these areas of fiction:
Short stories (any genre)
Novellas (any genre)
Novels (any genre)
Full Edit + Critique: In which I comment on content (plot and characters), check for typos, punctuation errors and grammar. I will cut unnecessary words and sentences, check for redundancies, repeated words, and POV changes. I will also offer easy fixes and suggestions on content.
Price: $1.00 per page
Manuscript Critique: In which I focus on content (plot and character) with no typo fixes or other forms of editing. I will point out flaws (if any), offer easy fixes, suggestions, and also comment on things I like.
Price: $0.50 per page
All payments will be done through PayPal.
