Katie Maylea | 2 comments Hi :)

I have a manuscript approx 84,000 words and im looking for some help/quotes

Its a mental health memoir that im hoping to publish to raise awareness.
Unfortunately I dont work full time and it seems like an impossible feat to get it up to standard with the little budget I have.

Im hoping to get it edited and proofread with the layout etc being looked at but know this comes at a cost understandably.

I am not a writer per se just someone with a personal story so i'm looking for someone who can possibly help / give advice or advise maybe how i can find someone maybe starting out?

Thank you

Chris (chris83) | 5 comments I could take a look at the first several pages for you and give you a quote. It would probably be about $1000 for a full copyedit. I can definitely help you with a critique on pacing, help with the outline, etc. I also have personal experience in mental health. Contact me anytime and we can talk.

If you have not found an editor as of yet, I would be happy to help you! I too offer a sample edit for the first 5 pages of your manuscript. Please fill out the form on my website and then we can talk about a specific quote based on your needs! I look forward to hearing from you.

Callie Walker | 1 comments Hello Katie,

I have just started a proofreading business and would love to offer my proofreading services to you once you've gotten your editing complete. Proofreaders look at the finer details of the final draft to make sure everything is spelled and punctuated correctly, because sometimes even editors need a fresh pair of eyes once they've read through a manuscript a couple of times. If you're interested, you can check out my website, proofcorrections.wixsite.com/callie, or my facebook page, facebook.com/proofcorrections, for more details.

Hope this helps and good luck!
