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.
- 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!
