Hi folks.  I am looking for someone to proofread and probably edit a short story.  It is about 22 pages in Word currently.  I know it needs a little more from me, but needs a second set of eyes on it.  I do proofreading, editing and writing at work (government) but would prefer someone away from the office as it is a different style (okay, not sure my style).

Please message me.  I am not sure what the cost of this service is either so that might be something to bring to the message table. 

Thank you for your time and have a wonderful weekend!

Hey everyone!!!  I am looking to connect with someone who would like to proofread / edit (or whatever the correct jargon is...) for my weekly blog at catalystjohn.com.

Basically, I'm curious what kind of cost I'm looking at...

Although I've technically been a member of the 48 Days community for several months, I've never actually utilized it.  I guess that makes me a newbie.  In recent months, I left my full-time, high-stress job and have been proofreading and writing resumes/cover letters.  I'm curious what most of the other members in this group do.  Thanks!

Hi Guys, 

I do proofreading, copy editing, line editing, and can even do developmental editing, although I consider Erin Casey to be the expert in that area. 

I've done freelance jobs for several of our 48Days members, and I currently work as a book editor for Sterling & Stone, a digital publishing company -- mainly line editing and copy editing. I can provide references. 

I would be happy to discuss any project needs. My direct contact is diane@thewritingrange.com.

Hello, Proofreaders.

I am also in need of editing/proofreading help.  (Actually, someone told me what I really need is a "line editor.")

Please message me if you are interested or know someone who might be.  I will email you the book and ask for your opinion and a quote.  (Yes, I would like to go the paid for service route.)

Not sure how active this group is, but I have a little project. I have a Goal Getting e-book that I'm creating that needs proofing.  It will probably be 15,000-20,000 words.  

For printable books, I go the editing route...but for a project like this, I keep it simple and just look for someone to proof read it and clean it up.  I don't expect perfection, but I am looking for excellence.  

My budget is limited for this project, but I'd be willing to barter if that would be of more value to you (I have several ideas). Also, I need a pretty quick turn around....a couple of weeks max.

If interested, post here or email me at info@liveitforward.com

Quick intro: I've proofread books for four members of 48Days.net (as well as books by other authors) and, as a result, have had my services recommended to other 48Days' authors. My background includes decades of promoting authors, publishing since 1981, and writing dozens of my own self-help, how-to manuals, books, special reports, tips booklets and subscription-paid newsletters.

I like to work within authors' budget requirements and schedules as possible. If you will send me your completed manuscript to be proofread, in confidence, I'll give you a free estimate, often with several options.

I'm new to 48days and was excited to find a few groups for writers. As a professional freelance writer for the last 18 years, I'm excited to network with fellow writers here!
