I have been part of the romance writing industry for sixteen years. I am a member of Romance Writers of America, International Thriller Writers, Pikes Peak Writers, and have been part of an amazing critique group, Passionate Critters, for six years. Starting out my writing career while an insomniac with my third child, I have since published eight novels, both with small publishers and on my own, under the name Beth Rhodes.
I always hire an editor to go over my manuscripts before I publish! Two, actually. After my amazing content editor gives me the lowdown on how my story looks, I revise then send my manuscript off to a copy editor. I have hired my fair share of copy and line editors in hopes of putting out the cleanest book. Sometimes I have paid too much for too little and been ticked off. A time or two, I have paid too much--period. Sometimes, I have contacted an editor, made a deal, and not heard back for weeks on end.
What does this mean?
It means I know what authors want. Reliable communication. Decent turnaround times. Fair pricing. This is an industry that wouldn't exist without authors.
I work for the author.
First, I’ll tell you what I don’t do: I’m not your content editor. You created a story. Find a good content editor to help you develop and write your best story!
After you’ve done that, come back.
I want to read your story. I will help you find inconsistencies, grammatical errors, clunky sentencing, and typos. I give commented feedback within the document and use Track Changes on Microsoft Word.
$.008/word: TNR 12 point, Double-spaced, 1 inch margins
