Editor for Hire?

Well, I'm in the EDITING BUSINESS. After volunteering many hours to help others get their writings ready to publish, it occurred to me I don't have time to continue this. So I decided to charge for my services as an EDITOR for those who are serious about publishing. Paying me $25/hour makes them more responsible/serious in completing their writings in a more timely manner. 

Having self published many books I know the process inside out.  The problem I'm finding is when the person I'm working with wants to keep making changes daily while in the editing mode, you may never get a finished product unless you stop and accept your final draft as is. But I can't complain if it takes more time, that's more money for me. 

Anyone want a book edited? My book Find Your Voice: Write Your Life Story has several chapters on editing, binding and other concerns, if you are interested in doing it on your own. Just send me an email to lin at sunrivertoday dot com and I'll send you a copy of my book for $10 plus $3 shipping or go to paypal. If you live close to me or it can be done online, contact me for one on one editing help. Having your own book printed especially your life story and published in hand is very satisfying, even if no one wants to buy it or read it. YOU DID IT!!!
