    looking for proofreader

    i am going to get a beta reader first on face book but I think before I release one of the four books I am done with I may want a proof reader as well. I may have my cousin Sharon do so but I want a backup plan just in case. So is there any services besides fiver that anyone has used that edits on the cheap. I am considering using fiver butttt... I kind of get the feeling that those people are just using the same program I am using a lot of times and thus why am I paying them to begin with.

    I take it that you will be seeking a native English speaker for proofreading?
    I say this because looking at your post that I've quoted, the indications are that the required proofreading will be extensive. Extensive can mean expensive.
    You might also need to stipulate whether US or British English is required.

    A real proofreader doesn't use a program. You need one of those. Cheap is relative. You need somebody good.
    Try this guy. I don't know his prices but I know people he's worked with. He's a reputable professional and works relatively inexpensively.

    You want people to pay you so you can pay someone else to edit work that you're going to attempt to sell to make a profit which you alone will pocket . . . and you seriously think people will do that?

    Earth calling Kunox. Are you there, Kunox?

    I don't get your complaint.. lots of people put things on kick starter. the have a hole section for books. people do this all the time except they usually give out some kind of perk.n in this case it may end up being my iriffs.
