I'm doing fairly in-depth line edits, so I don't need to be all ugh-another-one-someone-shoot-me when I sit down to work. Right?
It's all good. But it means that I'm now scheduled into early June. If you would like to hire me to edit your first 3 chapters, please bear in mind that your name will be added to the existing queue as soon as I receive your down payment and your actual project.
(I have a spreadsheet. I am so proud of myself I can hardly speak. No, really.)
- If you have NEVER SHOWN YOUR WORK TO ANYONE BEFORE, I would encourage you to seek a critique partner BEFORE hiring me. There's no reason for us to spend money while we are in the early stages of learning our craft. I feel strongly about this. (I mean, you can hire me anyway, but I don't believe it would be in your best interest if you are that early in the game.)
- If you know your project won't be ready for critique for several months, you might want to go ahead and get into the queue now. You can always send me an updated .doc file before your turn comes up.
- Please proofread. I correct everything I find, and if some of these errors are due to lack of careful checking, it's not the best use of my time.
If you have specific questions, please feel free to email me at authoress.edits(at)gmail.com. Please do NOT email editing questions to my other addresses. AUTHORESS EDITS is separate from my blogging activities. (Maybe I'm easily confused, but it works better this way.)
