ecube asked: How would this "Editor for Sale" thing work?
If you have a manuscript, comic, etc. that you need edited, I will edit it for the prices listed. Copy editing is just spelling/grammar/sentence structure. Reader response is a short review after reading, looking at the story from a reader’s perspective rather than an editor (I can also post that review on Amazon Kindle or Deviantart or wherever your work sleeps online). Developmental editing is like copy editing except I will also be looking at the story and presentation as a whole and give feedback on what you may want to revise/add/delete for your next draft. After that, we can have a conversation about the changes I made on Skype or another chat program for an hourly rate. This conversation could be for anyone who needs clarification on how to execute the changes from my written feedback, though it could also be for someone who has revised their work and wants to follow up with me on the changes they have made.
Payment is over Paypal. I will give you a quote of how much the total job would be and wait for confirmation before beginning. You may send me a note to obtain my e-mail, Paypal, Skype, etc.
Hello. My name is Clint Pereira and I’m looking to be your editor.
I am a house-trained English tutor with a published novel called North of Armageddon. I’ve worked in writing circles with published authors and have guided young student writers to write stories published in a writing collection for kids. I have done copy editing for Wurr (an awesome wolf comic by E. Jokinen) and am hoping to expand my freelance editing portfolio.
Here are some services I provide:
Looking at work as a reader and giving general feedback and questions to help guide your writing process.
*Recommended for all points, including outline stage
Checking the manuscript for grammatical consistency, spelling, punctuation, and other mechanics of style.
*Recommended for final drafts
Looking over content and the structure of the manuscript. Making sure the story works as a cohesive whole and gets across the intended purpose. An optional, online personal review can be held afterwards to help guide the writer through the next steps of their draft.
*Recommended for early drafts
Editing Cost: $2/page
Personal Review Cost (text based or voice chat): $15/hour
Advantages of my services
I specialize in all ages and skill levels. I am a tutor and trained educator and have worked with children, teens, young adults and old adults.
Story is my priority. Whether you’re writing your first big novel or an entry for a Sherlock Holmes fan fiction competition, my aim is to make sure that the story is readable. I’m not in the field of changing your personal voice or style of writing.
I’m a published author. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but it helps to talk to someone who has already gone through the process.
I’m not familiar with all fanfictions, so I cannot read from the perspective of a fan. Only an average reader.
You choose whether or not to accept my feedback.
My assistance doesn’t come with a publication guarantee.
