If you are either a new author or an established author, with a great story to tell, you will save yourself hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds in fees, using some or all of the services available on this website.
A trawl through proofreading websites will show that many offer their services below the recommended rates recommended by the Society for Editors and Proofreaders. This link to the SfEP website, which shows the recommended minimum hourly rate, is a starting point for both editor and client in their negotiations.
My charges are very substantially less than those published on the Internet. Surely, there is a catch?
The simple answer is no!
Most proofreaders and copy-editors will be doing this for a living. I am not. My satisfaction is twofold: first, in giving me something really worthwhile to do each day in retirement, and second, in knowing an author has been given all the help they need to make a success of their writing career.
