As many of you know, over at EconomyEdits.com I am an editor.
I work predominantly with independent writers (fiction, non-fiction & web content) because I want to help those I most identify with. You see, on THIS page I am an indie writer. 🙂
I think my rates are excellent for the quality I provide, being just £3 or $5 per 1000 words.
However, because I want to be working AND helping, I have come up with an idea… YOU tell ME how much you would pay for my services, and we will see if we can progress from there?
Simply send me a 500-1000 word sample of your work, tell me the genre and target audience, and where it exists in the story (as in, opening, first half, second half, ending, etc.), and I will work through it as I would a fully-paid piece of work.
You then review it, see how you feel, and make your kindest offer regarding my fee per 1000 words, being a figure we can both respect, but that will still allow you to put bread on your table and electricity in your bulbs.
Like everyone, I have my minimum monthly income requirements, but if I can meet them each month AND provide some other help to even less financially able indie writers, then all the better. It will keep me out of trouble, and will give you a better chance of finding more readers. 🙂
Sounds like a plan? Then let’s do it.
Oh, and, if YOU don’t have anything to edit right now but you know someone who does, please poke them into trying me.
