I proofread and copy-edit for authors from all over the world, from NYT bestsellers to indie authors just starting out, and I pride myself on keeping costs as low as possible. I know how tough the industry is, and how marginal earnings can be at both ends of the scale. In 2020 I'm having to consider raising my fees for the first time in 5 years. I really don't want to do it if there's any way it can be avoided. I've decided to give Ko-fi a go before making the change. If I've edited for you and you've been pleased with the price I've been able to offer, or if I've been able to help you with a free chapter edit and general advice to get you started, 'buying me a coffee' will help me continue to offer similar prices and services to other authors.
