In today’s world of self-publishing, there are many choices for readers as to how they will spend their fiction dollars. A clean book is essential to repeat customers and good reviews. As a reader, I find them highly distracting. That is the reason I am devoted to helping authors produce flawless fiction.
My services include editing for content, style, grammar, spelling, plot inconsistencies, and research. My rate is $.004 to $.01 per word depending on services requested with an additional $.002 per word if you wish to have a second review after making suggested changes.
I prefer working directly with authors and enjoy developing a working relationship with them, so that we each know what to expect from the other.
I guarantee my work-not to be perfect, although that is my goal, but to be to your satisfaction. If you are not satisfied with my work, you owe me nothing. Although none of us is perfect, I strive for perfection in order to give you a finished product of which you can be proud.
The Haunting of the Rose Queen by Roxanne Kean
I am delighted to recommend Rose Lipscomb’s editing services. She came highly recommended from another Amazon self-publishing author who is a rigorous perfectionist in their own right. I contacted Rose to copy edit and proof read one of my books. Her response came within the hour and even though she was busy with other jobs, she worked with me to help me meet my deadline during a holiday! Since this was my first time to work with an editor, I was naturally nervous, but she was extremely efficient, helpful, and I found her editing to be over and above anything I had hoped for. Currently, she is editing my next book, which gives me a great peace of mind.
“Rose is a pleasure to work with. She provided efficient and thorough edits including pointing out content issues such as plot holes, dropped threads, and inconsistent concepts. We worked through multiple rounds of edits and discussed issues as needed. I would gladly work with her in the future and plan to use her editing services again in the future.”
“Rose Marie edited my recent entry into the Heart of Denver Romance Writer’s Molly contest [An international competition]. Because of her help my entry, Oubliette, won two awards – the 2013 First Place Winner for Historical Romance and the 2013 Heart of the Molly award [The overall award]. She gives professional advice that is honest and insightful, yet encouraging. She will be my go-to gal for all my future editing needs! I highly recommend her.”
“Wow! I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done. I had no idea there were so many errors in the collection. My final proofer, is blown away also, and after looking at your list, spent a long time saying things like, “I can’t believe I missed that!” and “I’m so embarrassed!” . We’re both thrilled with what you’ve so kindly done.”
“You are amazing!!! Thank you SO much. I’ll tackle these in the next week or so and make the changes so I can upload a new, shiny version. I feel like I hit the jackpot with you, I can’t thank you enough and am genuinely touched that you went through all this effort just for me.”
“Wow, I’m impressed. You caught a lot of errors. You’re very thorough with your work. Thank you so much for editing/proofreading my book. I really appreciate your help. I’d like you to edit the rest of the Pleasure Extraordinaire series.”
“I just made the last of the corrections. Oh my word. You are awesome and I feel completely embarrassed about some of the things you caught. I swear, I did edit it before I sent it to you. lol. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much! I personally requested you read my book. It was one of my conditions to publishing through [this publisher]. You catch things that other editors missed.”
Rose did an excellent job. She didn’t try to change my voice or writing style but yet she caught issues which needed to be corrected, and questioned logistical aspects of the story so that I knew I had to add in details for the readers. She struck a fantastic balance between knowing when to trust the writer and knowing when to offer advice.
