Professional proof reader — for all things HORSE
Having devoted more years than I care to admit to horses and the racing industry, I am an authority on wording, equipment, feeding, caring for, grooming, training and anything else you can think of related to horses. Best of all, I know how differently horse people talk from one discipline to the next.
A friend recently called me to complain, once again, about how badly an author had butchered the horse portion of a book. From the passages she read out loud, I quickly concluded the poor author was writing with no help but her internet research. The internet has an amazing amount of information, but if you want your story to sound authentic, trust me, you still need a proof reader.
I hear best-selling authors trashed because they apparently don’t know the difference between horse feed and horse bedding. Straw is yellow and meant to be slept on… Hay is the green stuff horses eat, and is not what’s spread for bedding unless nothing else is available, or the horse is possibly being rehabbed for severe malnourishment.
So… I’m here. And my prices are very reasonable because I sincerely want to help my fellow author.
Proof Reading Rates:
Base rate is $1.00 per page… ($5.00 minimum charge)
Horse Content Editing:
Generally, this will be about double the price of a proof read. If you’ve already paid for a proof read, and decide to have me do a full content edit, the proof read money will go toward the edit as I’ll consider it a first pass.
All prices are subject to a sample read of your material. If the horse related portion is only a few pages of your manuscript, I’ll lower the prices. If your story is all about horses and your manuscript will require a great deal of time, I’ll quote you a price before we get started.
