The Fresh Eyes Edit

The Fresh Eyes Edit

The Fresh Eyes Edit is a Paid Service Extension of the 131 Preview Review. The Rules are the same. I will read the first 131 pages of your Fiction Manuscript and edit for any obvious errors.

1: If you wish to have me channel my inner Grammar Nazi, it can be arranged for a mere $60.00 PayPal transaction. I am not the Queen of Editing, but I do have fresher eyes than you do when it comes to your work. I will discuss the issues if I see them, with you and only you. No one else ever need know about it if you so choose. (Although a recommendation on Linked in is appreciated.)
2: I am open to original works, please do not inquire with fan fiction, or ask me to read something you did not write. I do not want to meet some one else’s characters, I want to meet yours!
3: Should your work be less than 131 pages, then YES I will read the entirety of it. For the $60.00 USD price, however I will not go over 131st page. That is my cut off.
4: If after receiving The F.E.E. you would like me to continue, the rate will be $30.00 USD each consecutive grouping of up to 131 pages.
5: You pay nothing upfront. Once I have read the work and done the edit I will send an invoice from PayPal, for which I am verified, and upon transaction verification, I will release the work back to you. (See Terms and Conditions below)
6: If you are interested, please contact me via the contact form located here. Put Fresh Eyes Edit in the subject and provide me with your name, email address and a short description of your work. 
7: Be Patient. Expect that you are probably not the only person whose work I will be reading, but I will reply to you with in 4-36 hours from initial contact. To discuss the thick and thin of what I do in more detail
I hope to hear from you and wish you the best in your writing endeavors!
Happy Writing!

Formatting Services

If you are an author and are finding formatting to be a difficult journey I may be of some service. For .50 a page I am willing to  take on the task of setting up your manuscript for Createspace and Amazon Kindle. In any Trim size you require. I am currently only able to help those using Microsoft word or compatible programs Mac users must convert to RTF or similar before submitting. 
This service can be combined with the Fresh Eyes Edit at a rate of .25 cents a page, so it pays to bundle! To secure your placement and my undivided attention a $15.00 USD deposit is required on all Formatting jobs. To be applied to the total page cost at the end of the edit. Plese read below for more details.
