New Editor Needs Work - Signal Boost Please

I just got off the phone with my editor, and I've got some bad news.  Her funding she has been living on will run out soon, and she now has to apply and begin the fight for getting SSI (Social Security Income).  She can work, if it's brain work, but only if so... physical labor is out of the question.

What she is specifically interested in is proofreading, spell checking, as well as editing, she does it all.  I'm VERY happy with how she helped me with "Dragon Shaman 2: The Smoky Mirror."  She feels strongest and is most interested in ready fantasy novels, science fiction, and poetry.  Romance history is also something she wouldn't mind editing.  Basically, anything that you have that needs an editor, she's open to.  She's most open to manuscripts 500-800 pages, but again... anything that's out there, she's up for.

She's also willing to edit a book for free if you are happy with her work and another customer comes to her using you as a referral.  She has no net presence as of yet (we are working on that), other than myself... and living two towns over and over the mountain (literally) she doesn't come to my place often.  She does have a computer though, so she can take files or hardcopies through the mail and get them back to you via that route in the meantime.

You can contact her directly to work out rates at

Yes, I have permission to share contact info.

Looking into the going rates for freelance editing, she is definitely willing to charge far less than prices I'm finding.  She isn't out to empty your wallet...  And seeing that some editors would have charged me $1000 to go through my manuscript, I nearly fell off my perch.  So I've definitely been lucky to have her.

Please pass the word along to anyone that you know that is looking for editing and proofreading... whether your kid in college, a friend you know working on a book, or anyone else.  And if anyone knows of any openings in publishing firms for editing, let me know so I can pass on the info (or you could give her a call).  Linkbacks are welcome and encouraged.  She really needs the help.
