Aitch Diamond | 85 comments I am a qualified proofreader. I accept your first 2000 words for FREE, so you have nothing to lose by sending them to me. All works are automatically covered by legal copyright. Please send your 2000 words to me for FREE for an in-depth analysis of your progress. I offer a range of services and can work in sections to fit your budget if you decide to retain my services. Send your 2k to itsoverthehorizon@yahoo.com. My website is at
https://goodreaderfornovels.wixsite.c...

If you are interested in pricing (as many people are) it is very difficult to judge without first working on a sample. Everyone is different but to give you an idea, on average, I charge $5.50 per 1k words. If English is your second language it will probably be more, if your MS is fairly clean it may be less.

This price is specifically for Goodreads self-publishing authors and is a time-limited offer as I am working on my APC with Society for Editors and Proofreaders(Sfep) and they require a certain amount of hours spent proofreading or proof-editing to move up their grading system. But I am still a long way from filling my quota so please send me your work!

As mentioned above send me a sample 2k in Word, as an attachment to

itsoverthehorizon@yahoo.com

and I will send it back to you with tracked changes and a quote per thousand words and a quote for the entire MS if you wish.

Can't wait to read your work!

Hello-

Please read the rules. Your original post on Aug 9th was less than the allowed 30 days. Rules are posted...first post on board. I feel like a broken record. Please read the rules. thank you.

Aitch Diamond | 85 comments Im sorry, i updated my details and changed my offer so i thought it would be ok. I am also having to compete with a post which is dominating this thread, has been bumped hundreds of times and has been on this thread for two years! Surely you have a rule for that so that we are on a level playing field.

yes. there are rules in the first few posts. what is not allowed is the bumping by authors in between the 30 days. responding to authors and questions is allowed, but you bring up a good point with the reviews that keep bumping up the boards, rather than them being used for their intended purpose which is to field questions and requests from authors.

Jackie Batston (bandi) | 15 comments Haze helped me with a project that was giving me heaps of trouble. I had finished a few thousand words and didn't know what to do with it.
I sent the first 2000 words to Haze. She showed me where I was wrong and indicated a path forward for me.
Thanks, Haze, for your help.

Aitch Diamond | 85 comments I have open slots for my free 2k proof and edit reading offer. A lot of people find this really instructive and helpful, to evaluate at what stage their work is , how they can initially improve it. I look forward to reading your work!
