Jenn Gigowski is the woman behind PREP Literary Consulting. She’s here today to share with us about this new, affordable service.
Yes, it's super new - just opened in May! PREP=Proofreading, Reviewing (which is a kinder term for critiquing), Editing and Polishing. The tag line is "Giving your manuscript a manicure!" As taken from my under-construction website: I am a Freelance Editor, which means that you are my potential boss! For new clients, I offer a FREE trial edit of a manuscript, on the chapter of your choice. There are so many different styles of writers, and editors come in just as many styles. You want someone who can hear your voice, "see" what you are saying, and work with you, instead of taking complete control of your "baby." I offer editing of the following: Typographical & spelling errors; capitalization & grammatical mistakes; punctuation misplacement, comma usage & splices; subject-verb agreements; sentence structure, fragments & lengths; syntax, tenses, word usage / nuance; repetition, consistency, anomalies, plot holes; paragraph spacing, visual layout & chapter page breaks; correct point-of-view for each scene. Anytime I edit a book, it will be kept in the author’s voice.
I’ve used Jenn’s services and have introduced her to other authors I know. If you’re looking for an editor, someone you can trust, and someone who won’t take over your story, contact her for a free trial today!
