RE: my books out lol
I told someone else this a while back: I'D EDIT FOR FREE!

I don't know how many times I've downloaded a book on Amazon and gave the story a BAD review JUST for grammatical mistakes. It makes the author look lazy... Even if they really did spend a lot of time working on the book.

I'd do it for FREE. If one wants to be respected as a writer, they must put in the effort to produce quality work. That includes hiring competent editors.

Oh... It was YOU that I told.

I peeked at the book, bud. I don't know how so many errors were missed. Dodgy If it were a digital book, I'd be more likely to download. But it being a real book that I'd have to wait for AND with all those errors.... well, If I didn't know you, I'd see this book and dismiss it automatically, regardless of the story.

She's fucking incompetent - not worth any price.

Whoever your editor is, even if it's your own mother, needs to be let go. The amount of errors in the dedication alone is immense and that's right at the beginning of the book.

Even if the editor is doing it for free, you're still getting ripped off.

What Peanut said: I'd see this book and dismiss it automatically, regardless of the story.... that's really how many people feel... people who read and buy books.

A shitty editor will be costly in the long run. If I were you, I'd take Peanut up on that word FREE. I don't know why anyone would deny someone offering up an inclination. Some of us are simply passionate about reading and hate to see a good story butchered beyond reading. Shy

RE: my books out lol
actually I thought peanut was joking at first... and i will be using him or er as long as he or she signs something... heck I don't use an editor without contract... lol. I just think thie editor I have does an averge job and she has in time reduced the cost of editing. lets judsst say it this way. the editors I can use cost me $7 per page. tshe cost 1.50 after she gets done. the editors I might use cost $4 a page. lol it's simple math but I have sent peanut a pm. so this will get under way.

RE: my books out lol
Amazon comes up for me showing only what I've been browsing previously. Can someone post a direct link to this book.
