So, I Read This Book Today . . .

Editing Fees and Guidelines

 

As my editing jobs have become more numerous, I have updated my Editing Fees and Guidelines. My editing and proofreading includes checking for grammar, sentence structure, misspellings, and pointing out plot inconsistencies, etc. At this time, my base charge is $0.008/word, with a minimum of $50payable via PayPal. Editing jobs I am currently working on, received before May 1, 2014, will continue to be edited at the old rate.

 

 If your manuscript is less than 5,000 words please let me know and we can work out pricing. I prefer to set up appointments for your manuscript, but please, send your manuscripts to me as early as possible.  I can often work them in sooner than they are scheduled, but advance notice is much easier.

 

 I use Microsoft Word 2013.  I use the Track Changes application while I edit and leave the decision as to whether or not to accept those changes to you.  I also tend to leave extensive notes outlining the reason for specific changes, noting uneven or awkward sentence or paragraph flow, or even if I noticed something that just doesn’t feel right.

 

 Full editing is completed in one of two ways.  The first choice is that I completely edit the book and provide you with a corrected copy, highlighting changes and corrections and making when appropriate extensive notes. Your second choice is full editing. I take the book in hand, do all corrections and changes and provide you with print ready copy. The charge for print ready copy is $0.010/word.

 

Please note:  Books from authors who speak English as a second language, hence requiring a great deal more correction for grammar, or books with extensive re-write may be significantly more.  You may send me your book for pricing if you feel there may be extensive work needed on the book. Pricing available upon request.

 

After I have edited a manuscript, I will send it back to you. Once you have made changes, you can always send it back to me for a second pass at no charge. Please note: If second-pass changes are truly extensive, I will reserve the right to bill a second payment for the second pass. I want to be fair to you, but I also want to be fair to myself. Just as writing is difficult, though rewarding, editing a book in a manner that will make you proud of your final product is a lot of work.

 

For available books on which I have worked, please see my “i-edited” shelf on Goodreads. You may contact any of the authors with whom I’ve worked for a reference. I am also very willing to provide you a sample of my work to see if we are a comfortable fit. I can be easily contacted through Goodreads or by e-mail at soireadthisbooktoday@centurylink.net

 

I look forward to working with you!

A stunning fourth installment!

Summit of the Wolf (Silver Wolf Clan Book 4) - Tera Shanley

There are very few people who are going to look into the mirror and say, ‘That person I see is a savage monster; instead, they make up some construction that justifies what they do. – Noam Chomsky

 

Morgan set her blazing glare on the stranger. “Why do you want me? You don’t even know me!”

“I don’t have to know you. You are Silver Wolf.” Rodrigo said it so matter of fact, as if the title was the only important thing about her. “You will bring honor to any wolf you choose.”

Grr. Asshat. He doesn’t even use her name….. And Morgan would sure as sugar rather lick a port-a-potty than be a kidnap victim again. – Morgan, Brand of the Pack: Silver Wolf Clan

 

They Just. Won’t. Stop. It doesn’t matter that Morgan is mated and happy with Grayson and his Demon Wolf. With Morgan being the last of the Silver Wolves, the only breeders that ever existed, there are those who will not stop until they can capture Morgan and make her a breeder for their pack – a sex slave with no rights, destined to be nothing but a rape victim and ‘puppy mill’. Grayson will never let it happen, and the Dallas Pack is there to help – but how will they ever stop the horror of constant attacks against the packs, attacks meant to capture Morgan, but just might wind up killing her and everyone she loves, including her baby niece, the daughter of Morgan’s sister who was killed by the same werewolf who turned Grayson.

 

The fourth of the Silver Wolf Clan series picks up where the last books did, ramping up the action and costing the lives of friends. The only hope now is the Summit and, hopefully, pressure from the Old Ones to stop the attacks and attempted kidnappings, and protect not only Morgan, but tiny Lana and teenaged Marissa. And then there is Gray’s stupid, self-centered, sanctimonious father stepping back into the scene and causing even more havoc. Can we not get a BREAK here?!

 

“We would have invited you to the wedding, but Grey assured us you were a prick.”

 

Ha! You tell him, Morgan! “Her control over that pesky middle finger of hers was impressive.”

 

Of course, it isn’t just the wolves that are a danger. Nope. Let’s add in some ancient vampires to round things out – vampires, who are the very reason Morgan is the last of her kind. Again, a break here?

 

I am so thrilled I found the first book, the aptly named Silver Wolf Clan. My review rating has risen with each book, to this one, which hits the five-star rating I have been reaching for. A wonderful series!!

 

I received the books of this series from the publisher in exchange for realistic reviews. This is one of my favorite urban fantasy series, and I highly recommend it.

 

If you like my reviews, I would be honored if you would leave a “This review was helpful” on Amazon or whichever site you use to purchase your books. Thank you so much!
