DK Editorial strives to provide excellent resources and services to the writing community. I launched my site this past year in hopes of it one day becoming a one stop resource for writers. I am continually adding new services and building my skills and connections in the writing community to improve my site. I have been blogging on various topics for the past 6 years. But fiction reading and writing is where my passion is.
I started reading and writing at four years old and I have been an avid reader ever since. I would read anything and everything I could get my hands on. In school and college I always received A’s in English and Literature. I realized I had an excellent eye for proofreading when self-publishing began to take off. I would constantly find mistakes that were missed and could have easily been caught by a different set of critical eyes. I realized as I was mentally correcting grammar, punctuation, and spelling that I had found my niche.
However, my then full-time job took most of my time and energy. So, this past October I decided to dive in head first and launch my editorial business. I have already done proofing and editing work for Amazon Best selling authors, and I am always accepting new clients. I specialize in helping Indie authors who want their writing to shine as bright as the stars.
My business is based in Tennessee, but I serve the entire world. All work is done through internet, phone and Skype communication. Editing and proofreading is done through MS Word Track Changes. I have quick turnaround times and work at a 99% accuracy rating. I accept manuscripts in the following genres: all romance, mystery, suspense, sci-fi, young adult, historical fiction, and literary fiction. I do NOT accept paranormal or LGBT.
DK editorial offers a wide range of services for Indie authors.
I have consultation services for authors who need a little guidance or feedback to help develop or move their story along. This service can also be used if you are having writer’s block and need help brainstorming or if you need help with character development.
I offer manuscript critiques which are useful for assessing the current status of the manuscript. It helps identify the strengths and weakness of the manuscript and provides assistance in building onto what the author has already achieved in order to make an excellent book.
I do editing on multiple levels, including: developmental, line, and copy editing. I also offer final proofreading services. These services can be ordered individually or as a package deal. I have editing packages from novelette up to full-length novel. Rates for services start at .005 per word up to .02 per word if order individually. Packages have further discounted rates.
I offer formatting services for e-publishing. This is to make sure that your completed manuscript is properly laid out to be published for an e-reader. I do formatting for short stories up to full-length novels.
I do editorial reviews which are useful for authors who need or want to have reviews prior to publishing. These reviews can be posted on the point of sale sight at time of publishing and can be of great help to your book marketing. The editorial review consists of a final proofread to check for any remaining errors and proper formatting.
I have several different book promo options ranging from free to $50. My free promotions include listing the book on the Books To Read page on my website as well as posting a picture of the book and the book blurb with a link to purchase. I also offer a free author interview that will be posted once on my blog. My paid packages include the free promo in addition to multiple social media posts on multiple sites and accounts. Posts include book excerpts chosen by the author, links to buy the book, links to the author interview and/or bio, and links to any reviews I’ve done.
