Use proofreading services to give your book a reader’s viewpoint
So you’ve written a book, you’ve sent it to the editor, and it all looks really great. The story is fantastic, and you’re ready to publish….or are you?
That final step before publishing is where I come in.
I have been a reader and bookworm for most of my life. I run across books that make me think “I wish they had asked ME about this!” Giving my opinion on published books is amazing, and I wouldn’t change it for anything, but helping an author get the professional look they want is something above and beyond. If you’re interested in my proofreading services, please check out my policies below.
Proofreading is not like editing. I promise not to change the feel and voice of your book.
My main focus is helping with the small things, like grammar and punctuation. I ran across one book that used “bought” instead of “brought” once; those are the kind of changes that I would suggest.
I charge $5.00 per 10,000 words, for the first 70,000 words.
After 70,000 words, the price goes up $7.50 per 10,000 words.
Please allow 30 days for your book to be proofread. If you have a rush job (less than 30 days), please note that in your contact, and be prepared to pay a rush fee of $50.
I reserve the right to change my price at any time. This will not affect projects currently under contract.
What People Are Saying
“Pamela was such a joy to work with. She’s professional and honest. My favorite thing about working with her was the level of care she put into keeping true to the flow and style of my writing, even when suggesting a sentence restructure. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for meticulous editing done with care.”–Brandon Reeder, The Pact
If you are interested in working with me, please use the contact form below and provide the following information.
This information is important as I have to be able to distinguish among all the different projects in my queue.
- Your name
- The working title of your book
- Number of words
- Rush job or not
- Publish date of your book
- Email Address
Once I receive your request, I will look it over and email you a contract with a quote and time frame within which I can complete your project. I reserve the right to extend the deadline past 30 days if I become backlogged. Once we have both agreed on services, please provide a Google Docs or Microsoft Word form of your book, so I can add comments, questions or changes. All changes I propose will be in red, so you can see where I’ve made them. I reserve the right to change these policies with or without warning, but If I’m already under contract with you, the new policies will not affect you. If you are interested in working with me, please fill out the contact form below.
