Hire me! 🙂

I am now creating space for independent contracts to clients who wish to hire me for publishing-related services. You can contact me through email, Facebook messenger, or I have opened a new business account with Freelancer.com.

Since I am just getting started with this offer, I’m going with a flat rate of $10 USD/hr. for projects of more than one page. For projects of one page or less, my fee is $.01 per word.

Please browse the information below to see if my skills are a good match for your publishing projects.

Services Offered:

  • Book Reviews — (I don’t do “paid positive reviews”. My integrity is important to me, so if I feel the book is not good enough to  recommend honestly, I will charge only a “kill” fee, rather than full price. Rejections come with constructive criticism for possible re-submission.)
  • Writing — creative composition, content, and copy
  • Editing — fiction or non-fiction
  • Proofreading — fiction or non-fiction
  • Copy Typing — Let me do those boring transfers from .pdf to .doc for you!
  • Research — all resources cited to save you time
  • Illustration Services — small or simple illustration work in digital format

Experience and Education:

  • Author of 4 published epic/dark fantasy novels.
  • Current administrator of Bad Cat Ink publishing blog.
  • Cover art illustrator for 7 published novels.
  • Former contributor to the Scriptors writer’s collective and blog.
  • 5 years experience beta reading, proofreading, and editing.
  • 6 years of volunteering as Native English speaker and tutor in Japan. (Level 1 knowledge of Japanese language.)
  • 20 years experience home schooling two children from kindergarten through completion of high school, both of whom went on to excel in their chosen vocational/higher education pursuits. (I have excellent planning and organizational skills. I am self-motivated with objectives and deadlines. And I can offer instruction as needed.)
  • Data consultant and independent contractor for game and novel publisher Wizards of the Coast.
  • 3 years of college level education toward an English B.A. with a minor in French.
