Joe sez: Those of you paying attention may notice I have a new picture in my sidebar, linking to my proofreader. I released Haunted House earlier this year, in a rush to meet a deadline, and the published book had dozens of errors in it.
Since then, I've been using Chereese to vet my manuscripts, and have found her reliable, fast, and affordable.
Here she is to talk about what she does.
Chereese: We all make mistakes.
As an author you have whole worlds to create, characters to build, stories to tell, you can’t always remember to cross every “t”, dot every “i”, or make sure that the son your protagonist had on page four didn’t end up as a daughter on page one hundred and seven.
That’s where I can help. My name is Chereese and I can catch the things that may go unnoticed by you or your copy editor. I’ll do a first read-through of your manuscript to get a sense of your writing, and utilizing the Chicago Manual of Style I can help to make sure your work is in tip-top shape and ready for publishing.
Once you’ve completed the editing process, I can be one more set of eyes to help with:
Rates: I charge a flat fee of $1.50 per each double-spaced, 12 point font page. That way you’ll know exactly what the upfront cost will be. The goal is to find no mistakes, but whether I find one or a hundred, your rate will never increase.
Turnaround Time: Varies depending on scope of work. Estimated anywhere from two days to two weeks.
Method: Everything is handled through email. Most documents are proofread utilizing the Track Changes feature in MS Word. A hard-copy, red-lined version can be available upon request.
Payment: I bill through Paypal. Full payment will need to be received before a finalized version of your manuscript is emailed back to you.
