If you are interested in having professional proofreading done, I'm happy to help you out!  I was a professional proofreader/copy editor for 5 years at a major newspaper in Connecticut, and I've kept my hand in since then.

Here are the pricing guidelines and what I can and cannot do:

- I don't care about content - I'm fine with erotica and other things.
- Turnaround time depends on length and what you need
- Payment is through Paypal

Rates:
- up to 10K - $25
- Every additional 5K - $10

If you are interested, please contact me at cassandrajree at gmail.

  • Mon, 15:47: I have noticed that people don't seem to understand the difference between a copy editor and a story editor.
  • Mon, 15:49: Story editors work on the plot issues, character issues, story issues. They're the first editors the story gets.
  • Mon, 15:49: Copy editors, like me, get the story when these issues are fixed. We make sure you aren't repeating words, misspelling things, etc.
  • Mon, 15:50: We deal with grammar and punctuation. Not plot threads. #nowyouknow

Boy, has it been a month or so.  I've been busy, both proofreading and writing.  I've finally cleared my schedule, so if you're looking for proofreading work, I'm available!  Drop me a line at cassandrajree at gmail, and we can talk.

I'm also working on some blog posts (I'm so bad at blogging regularly) talking about the differences between proofreading and copy-editing, and why I won't do plot editing at this point.  It's not because I hate it (on the contrary, I enjoy it), but it takes so long, and quite frankly, most people don't want to pay for good editing.  Trust me, I understand - it's not cheap.  But I'm not going to do anything less than 100%, and that takes time.  And time is money.  Time that I'm taking to edit your piece is time away from writing and/or editing my own work.  Which is less money in my pocket.  So I charge what I feel is fair.

I'm going to be more active here, I promise.  I'm working my way into a system, and I'll be talking more about all sorts of things.  Including writing, which I'm getting back into.  It's time to start really taking my career by the horns.

What have you guys been up to?
