Are you an author looking for an affordable proofreading and editing service that won’t break the bank? Digital Writing Services might be just the place you are looking for. Digital Writing Services was started by an author who couldn’t believe the ridiculous fees that companies wanted authors to pay, especially since a lot of new authors can’t afford paying $35 an hour or $3 a page. Then these companies make their services adjustable based on how many words, how long the novel is, and go into a complicated equation of how they justify the way they price their services. Seems like this is one of those services that an author should know exactly what they get and not have to pull out a calculator to figure out what they are going to owe.
The proofreading and editing services for Digital Writing Services is $1 a page no matter how long or how short the authors’ novel, novella, short story, or epic is, and the author can send their manuscripts through e-mail, thus the digital in the company name. The author just has to send their manuscript by e-mail as an attachment, no having to pay shipping and handling to the Post Office, UPS, or Fed-Ex, and then the author gets their manuscript back quicker. PDF conversion for upload to Kindle or other e-book readers, is also available for $10. College students also get their essays and research papers proofread and edited for $5. However, they must already be written in APA, MLA, or Chicago Manual of Style format.
Another service offered to authors is the ability to have their published works added to the website for $10 a year, this is called the Author Showcase. The author only has to send in e-mail a jpeg of the book cover(s), summary/blurb, list of links to places their novels are being sold, links to reviews, and, if the author wants, links to where they can be found on social networking sites. Readers and other authors can find books to read that they may never have noticed or knew about.
If you sign up to be a member, which is free itself, the author can be a guest blogger on the site. The author can write about their experiences in writing, publishing, marketing, promoting, or even publish a review of one of their novels. There is an Author Events Calendar where authors can post their book tours, book signings, speaking engagements, and blog tours. Another feature is the forums, where everyone can hang out and discuss books, movies, favorite authors, what POD companies to avoid, or anything else related to the writing world.
If you are an author, then go ahead and check it out. The official opening for business will be May 17.
