I finally did one of the things I’ve been planning ever since I got this website. I am now offering editing services!
I’ve always been one to notice typos and grammar mistakes and I’ve read so many stories that I have a reasonable idea of how that work. I offer basic proofreading, line editing to really help people improve the flow of their prose, and a critique of the general structure.
I’m pretty sure I will comment on other things while line editing though because I won’t be able to stop doing what i do when beta reading. I considered offering structural edits, but I’m not confident in my abilities with that, so the critique will be my way of moving in that direction.
To celebrate the launch I’m running my first ever giveaway. You have a chance to win yourself a free critique, a 50% discount on any one of my edits, or an eBook.
I’m giving away two favourites books that don’t get enough exposure. The Five Unecessaries by Laura Campbell is dystopian that doesn’t follow the usual conventions. It’s gritty, real, and beautiful. The amount of kissing takes it close to the edge of my comfort level. You can check out my full review here.
The Wanderer’s Daughter is quirky middle grade fantasy by Australian author Justyn Walker. It’s rather allegorical (what else would you expect when it’s in the land of Allegoria), but not heavy handed. The story carries itself fine and is completely hilarious. I’ll put up a review for it during the week.
And here is the giveaway:
