As you probably know, if you're a regular reader, I have a HUGE heart for the self-published/indie author. I mean I LOVE them to death. Some of my most favorite stories have been produced by those who have either been shunted away from or decided to shun Big-Pub. But after having mined a few gold nuggets from the sea of self-pub/indie only to find that the one major need seems to be affordable copy editing, I have decided to offer that service myself!
I don't know how many times recently I have read a book where I could tell the author really put their heart & soul into it. This was their baby & they were proud of what they had produced. Except there were glaring errors of punctuation, spelling, grammar, consistency, etc. My heart aches for the fact that I have then had to review with the inclusion of this embarrassing information because I always review objectively, leaving nothing out.
What my goal would be, then, is to provide affordable copy editing for those publishing their own works. I have a background in business & creative writing & read with a fine toothed comb. If you are an indie/self-pub author & would like to get more info on this service or a quote, please feel free to email me at dear[dot]opposition[at]gmail[dot]com.
Please consider my services before hitting publish & sending out your book to bloggers for review. I will help you refine & make your baby even better than ever!
