Contact me at melodydaggerhart@gmail.com if you would like to hire me for any of the services below.

Book Reviews:

Most of my reviews are done with books I read for my own enjoyment in my free time. They are not solicited endorsements. Unless otherwise stated, assume this is the case.

Solicited endorsements are a form of marketing, so I don’t do them for free. I know this isn’t a popular stance, but time is money for writers and artists. If I’m going to spend 10 or more hours reading, and another 2-4 hours writing up a review to help someone market their book, my time deserves to be compensated, just like other professions.

Having said that, if you would like me to write a review to help market your book, I accept non-fiction and fiction.

For non-fiction, I prefer it to be related to the craft or business of writing, since that is the nature of this blog, but I might agree to other topics, depending on subject matter.

For fiction, I will accept fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal, speculative, historical, horror, literary, steampunk, adventure, YA, and some romance fiction genres.

No erotica, religious, or hate literature accepted. If I don’t like the genre, I won’t like the book. If you’re not sure whether your book fits my niche, contact me, and let’s talk!

Editing:

I offer professional beta reading, copy editing, and content editing services. Pricing varies depending on the length of the project. When contacting me for an editing contract, please offer a short summary of your work, discuss how you’d like me to help, know your word count, and have a tentative deadline in mind. We can discuss further details via email.

Illustration:

Illustration and design services are priced according to the size of the work, and whether the work is color or black and white. Most projects can be negotiated for a flat fee. I will be posting a portfolio as soon as I can arrange it. Meanwhile, you can check out my “Books” page for a sampling of my cover art designs.
