Ready… Set… Copy Edit!
November 10, 2013
You may or may not know that I had a slight delay in getting my Flubs 2 Fixes Copy Editing and Proofreading service off the ground. That delay is over, and I am now able to offer my services as noted in the Services for Writers — Flubs 2 Fixes tab in the menu above.
I apologize for the delay, and I thank you for your patience. I’m eager to get to work now, and hope that if you need copy editing or proofreading, or if you hear of someone who does, you’ll think of me.
Note: Because of the delay, the introductory discount of 20% off the cost of all services has been extended to February 28th, 2014!
Beyond the magic “read more” words, I express gratitude, and give you a heads-up…
As I mentioned in my initial post about Flubs 2 Fixes, Emma Walton Hamilton gave me a wonderful testimonial for my service. She has now written a blog post endorsing Flubs 2 Fixes — “How Clean is Your Manuscript?” I am deeply grateful for this, and for all the encouragement she provides. Thank you, Emma!
I’d also like to thank my friend Jan Streiff, who has been immensely helpful when I needed to bounce ideas around, who has provided constant encouragement, and who thought up the name Flubs 2 Fixes. Thank you, Jan!
Now, a heads-up — beginning in December, and running the third Monday of every month thereafter, I will be having a Q&A style blog series, dealing with questions about grammar and word use. If you have grammatical quandaries or word use muddles, I’d be happy to try to solve them for you. Questions will be treated anonymously, and I’ll focus on one question per month. Please send your question to mail (at) flubs2fixes (dot) com — you know what to do with the (at) and the (dot). I hope to hear from you. Watch for A Word With Beth the third Monday of every month!
Also, come back here on Friday for a Perfect Picture Book choice that celebrates punctuation!
