Aaron W. Miller (amill016) | 6 comments In response to the perceived need for a stronger source of editing services among the indie publishing community, The Free Collective has started a free peer editing service for indie authors. In exchange for editing another author's manuscript, you can get your manuscript edited for free. This is an excellent way for you to get your manuscript looked at by other sets of eyes and will strengthen your own writing skills. Find out more at http://thefreecollective.org/peer-edi...

Scott Skipper | 13 comments This looks promising. I will give it a try.

Steven Freeman I think this is a good idea, provided the works being swapped are of roughly equal lengths.


message 4: by Aaron W. (new)

Aaron W. Miller (amill016) | 6 comments Agreed. Part of the swap is an indication of length so that authors can exchange works of similar length.


message 5: by Scott (new)

Scott Skipper | 13 comments I'm not sensitive to length variation but we need many more books to be submitted. Am I missing something? I only saw two.

Aaron W. Miller (amill016) | 6 comments Yes. I just initiated the program so more books need to be added. I've started advertising it to hopefully get some more people in the group.

Scott Skipper | 13 comments OK, I registered. When I get my password I'll submit my latest. I'm calling it political satire for want of a more precise genre. It's called Golden State Blues and has already been reviewed on Goodreads.

Aaron W. Miller (amill016) | 6 comments Sounds good. The book up there now is also satire.
