If you’re ready to self-publish but need a final copyedit first, please check out the benefit auction on behalf of Bridget Zinn. Bridget is a Young Adult author and librarian who’s battling Stage 4 colon cancer, and all the auction proceeds go toward her medical expenses that aren’t covered by insurance.
I’m a freelance editor in California who has worked with dozens of self-published authors. I’m donating a full copyedit of a manuscript up to 100,000 words. This would normally cost hundreds of dollars, but you may be able to get a great deal by bidding on the auction. The auction website is www.ly.bridgetauction. Do a search for "manuscript copyedit" if you’re interested. For more about me and my services, please visit my website at www.secondsetofeyes.com, and do feel free to email me if you have any questions before bidding.
The auction lasts until December 4th. If you still need help with macro issues in a developmental edit (voice, plot, pacing, characterization, dialogue, etc.) you can check out other items up for bid–there are many manuscript critiques and evaluations donated by professionals. You can also bid on signed books and other items in the auction, all for a great cause to help a fellow writer.
