Nick Wilford, Freelance Editor - Official Launch

The day has come - time for the official launch of my editing service! Thanks to everyone who's helping me out with it this week. Here's the lowdown on why I decided to kickstart my business and what sort of things I have to offer.

With the unstoppable rise of self-publishing, it’s easier than ever to put your words and stories out there in the world. This is a great thing, and I’m all for it. However, it’s not just about the story - although of course, that is the most important part - but the way it’s presented. After spending months or years on a novel, building an incredible world and honing your characters and storylines to perfection, the last thing you want is to be let down by a lack of editing. It’s just as important as an arresting cover image.

Nick Wilford, Freelance Editor is a one-stop shop for affordable editing, proofreading and formatting services. With professional training and ten years of experience as a journalist and editor, the time has come to transfer these skills in order to help out the fellow authors I have come to love.

But it doesn’t stop there. I’m ready to edit anything; from a crucial term paper, to memoirs and other non-fiction books, short stories, articles or job application letters. Let me put that finishing touch on your masterpiece.

Feel free to take a look at my website for further details of my services and prices.

Also, look out for something exciting coming a week on Friday - it's my two year blogiversary, and I'm planning to give away some juicy prizes relating to my business!

I understand your decision to go into editing. I've thought about doing it myself -- but I don't think I could stand what would essentially be marking MORE students' papers!!

Good luck with your business. As for myself I have a savant-like talent for avoiding being able to afford services like yours--- or, at the moment, a new pair of second-hand thrift shop jeans.

I just read about this over at Alex's! I wish you the best of luck, Nick.

Pk Hrezo said...

Nick this is so great!! I wish I'd have known sooner, cuz I JUST sent my story out for proofreading. I'd have loved for you to do it and given it a guy's touch.
But there'll be others! I'll link up your service from my blog. Wishing you much success with it!
