Why do you say “for indies”?
I believe in indie publishing. Indie authors have put their heart into their work. They deserve editing and layout services with the same kind of passion.
Traditionally published authors typically benefit from in-house editorial services and professionally produced books with well-executed layout. Indie authors, however, are on their own in acquiring these services, which typically are outside of their skillset. There are some really great freelance editors and book finishers who do great work at a fair price. However, there are also a lot of scams out there, including self-described “publishers” who actually charge the author for everything, including print runs, and self-proclaimed “experts” who provide shoddy work. We as an industry need more of the good kind of services. I’m here to be a part of that.
Do you work only with indie authors?
Of course not. I’m happy to work with all authors.
What if I have questions about your edits?
I’m happy to answer your questions and discuss my notes or your manuscript. Time is my limiting factor, so I use as a rough guideline up to two hours to go over edits on your 80,000-word novel. I’ll pro-rate that up or down for longer or shorter works.
Will you publish my book?
No, my work here is about helping you with editing and/or book design to help you present a well-told story in a beautiful book that you or your publisher publishes.
