    Richard De A'Morelli

    Editor, Proofreader, Publishing Consultant, Web Developer

    United States - Tests: 7

    I'm an editor, writing instructor, publishing consultant and author with 30+ years of experience in the industry. I have held Senior Editor and Managing Editor jobs with print and digital publishers, and I was a bylined editorial staff member to the late Irving Wallace, one of the top-selling authors of modern times. I offer high-quality editing and proofreading services to authors and publishers. Self-publishing authors are welcome. I guarantee my work, and I've never had an unhappy client. For manuscripts over 10,000 words, I charge $.01 a word for proofreading, $.02 for copy editing, $.03 for line editing. I offer discounts for well-written copy and books over 80,000 words. Please request a quote for shorter manuscripts and projects requiring heavy rewriting. I also offer publishing support services: e-book and print formatting, cover design, ISBN and bar code allocation, and copyright filing. As a writing coach, I can help you with grammar and style, guide you on a project, or assist you in developing your own unique voice. We can explore the pros and cons of self-publishing versus traditional publishing and why/when you should seek an agent. My coaching fee is a very reasonable $45 an hour. I offer a "pre-review" service with a detailed critique of the first chapter of your book. I will perform intensive editing of selected passages and give you examples of how you can improve your work in progress. A pre-review will help ensure that you are on the right track before you invest your time and effort writing an entire book. I charge a flat $75 for this service. I began my editing career as a writer. I published my first article at age 14, and since then, I have published 12 nonfiction books, two novels under pseudonyms, 500+ bylined articles, and two dozen e-courses on writing, grammar and Web programming. My latest book is "Discover the Power to Change Your Life," available on Kindle http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QVMHXLU/ and in paperback http://www.amazon.com/dp/0993634079/ Feel free to contact me if you need an editor or proofreader, or if I can help with your projects in other ways. Have an awesome day!
