I Am Offering Editing Services

The phrase that pays.

As you may notice, I have a new tab at the top of my blog page.  At the request of several people I have decided to offer editing services to anyone who wishes to have their novel or short story chopped down to a more workable form.  The following are the details:

1.  I will charge 0.01 cent per word which is less than the going rate and allows me to be competitive.

2.  I will not only copyedit a text (grammar, readability, flow, continuity), but I will also proofread and critique the text as well.

3.  Credentials: I have taught writing for over 15 years, have written my own fiction for over 25 years, participated in writing groups for over 15 years, and hold an English degree with a minor in Creative Writing from Oklahoma Baptist University which at the time I graduated was one of the top liberal arts colleges in the nation.

If you are interested, pop on over to the page and fill out the contact form.  I will return your request promptly.

  1. Congratulations, Roger, that is terrific! (My novel is still a year or so away from being at that stage, but even someone like me, who edits other people’s work, needs her own editor, so I will keep this in mind.)

    I have a request, Roger, since I know you do posts on writing tips. Can you please do a post on one of my pet peeves? “should have, could have, would have” as opposed to “should of, could of, would of” ……. eww, my teeth are tingling just writing that!! Every time I read those words, I just want to strangle something! LOL. Thanks for considering my request, Roger! 🙂

  2. That is great to know! I may just take you up on that myself. My first book is due out the end of this year, and I love my publisher, but I’ve gotten just a bit impatient with their time frames. I’ve been seriously thinking about self-publishing the second installment, simply so I can get it out in LESS THAN fourteen months, but of course I’ll need a professional editor. I’m not there yet–probably not for a few more months–but I’ll let you know! 😀
