So I guess I haven’t been here is so long that no body even knows that I exist. I hope it’s not rude that I just randomly storm in unannounced after joining months ago and doing NOTHING with my account. ^_^’
So I actually wrote one of those darn book thingys based off a Tabletop rpg campaign I did with some of my besties. I plan on going full in Indie Author with it…but there is just one problem. I. Can’t. Find. An. Editor. Is there anyone here who knows an editor within a starving artist’s price range?

“…starving artist’s price range?”
That’s amazing 😂
I am not an editor… but I had to stop by and comment on your phrase.

@jane-maree is an editor, and her prices are really good. (I intend to go to her with my novel I’m working on editing.) I also edit for fairly cheap, though I’ve found that I tend to lose steam and have a hard time getting through the last several chapters if I’m working on a full novel. Novellas and short stories are easier for me. That doesn’t mean I’m not open to novels, it just means I may be a little slow when I get near the end, though obviously I’ll try not to be. 😛

Okay, thank you so much! Also, if you are interested giving my novel a shot, but not sure it would be your thing, I can email the draft to you and see if you think it would be your kind of thing or not. 🙂November 9, 2018 at 12:47 pm #58808Selah CJW@selah-chelyah
@blueberry No problem! 🙂

@blueberry If you want I could edit the first chapter, like I would with any potential client, and we could both find out if it’s a good fit. If it’s not, no hard feelings. 🙂

@blueberry, I consider myself an editor since I’ve done so many projects for people. But I don’t have it as an official job.
I have a rather large grasp of grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc.

The Christian PEN has an extensive list of qualified freelance editors, but I don’t know if they’d be within your price range: https://thechristianpen.com/find-an-editor/

@blueberry First, I can relate to the struggle. There are so many expensive editors out there, and while I believe that their services are worth the price… it’s hard to pay that price sometimes 😛
I’m also an editor myself, though I won’t have any open slots until January. Here’s my page if you’re interested. 🙂

@morreafirebird Yeah, I am trying my best to find a balance of finding somebody that is affordable, experienced, but I also don’t want to underpay either becuase I know editing is a lot of work. Especially for me, who my friends have declaired the typo queen. XD I will keep all that in mind, thank you!
