By the way, I also do manuscript editing, and I’m having a “Welcome, August” sale! (Note that the comma indicates I am welcoming August. Without the comma, “welcome” would be an adjective modifying August.)
I usually charge $6 per 1,000 words, but for the first seven days of August, I’m knocking off 10 percent, bringing it down to $5.40 per 1,000 words. Editing a full 100,000-word novel would then cost only $540, which is a price with many bargain-like qualities. As usual, I’ll edit the first five pages for free so you can see how I work.
All you have to do is contact me by Aug. 7. If your book isn’t quite ready, that’s fine. I’ll hold the price.
You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Sorry, but I don’t do erotica, nor would you want me to.)
