As a semi-new author I realized that self editing has very many flaws but most other editing services are really costly. I really didn't see the need to pay 100+$ for an editing service so I launched Verum-Editing. If your publication is under 100,000 words then we will edit it for $20.00. If it is over 100,000 words then we charge $40.00. You can find us at;

I've tried a couple of times to contact you through your website and it won't let anything go through - you need to open up you contact system so ppl can actually contact you.

Good for you: it's always great to see people taking an entrepreneurial initiative and starting a business.
One word of advice: if you're selling an editing service (which I would assume includes proof-reading?) may I suggest you look to correcting at least 8 grammatical errors in the main paragraph of your homepage?
As is, the page is going to result in zero business for you.
Best of luck.

I have a client who needs editing service. Can you tell me your experience as an editor? Thanks

The idea is good, but I would like to see the credentials of the reviewer. I do agree it is a bit worrying to have the mis-spelling in the post, but if a group of people got together to edit each other's work, then that might be very helpful for those of us who just do not earn enough to pay a professional.
I did sign up for this out of interest, but then realised that although there is a charge for editing, the person who started this wants volunteer reviewers. I am not sure it is fair to charge unless you pay the people doing the work, or create an exchange. It could easily be done page for page.
When you are a new writer, then this may be a better option than paying a fortune for a book which might never sell, except to your friends, any way. There is no way you will pick up on every mistake in your own work, and as we all get better at formatting and so on, then again we could be helpful to others.
If anyone wants to do page for page edit and formats with me, then I would happily do that as long as you can write decent English and actually understand that it is more than just correcting the English - things like style and coherence of the whole book would surely come into it. You cannot just stick a book into something like autocrit and then expect the text to be perfect.
I once edited a booklet for a tutorial school. They sent it to some woman to edit - It came back in perfect grammar, but it made NO sense to anyone, because the person editing did not realise that editing is NOT just about making perfect English. You write to an audience, you need a 'style', you need to speak so people actually want to 'listen....'
