I (finally) got a book list page up!

I’ve added a new something on my website for those of you who are paying attention: a Book List!

I’ve been trying to come up with a way to showcase some of the projects I’ve worked on in the past nine years of doing this professionally, but I didn’t want to do just a list of books, because then it’d be an absolute wall of text. I didn’t think it would be a good idea to include the entire project list from the past nine years, either, because that…just seems a bit much. So I backed up to January 2017 and went from there.

So on my new book list page, you can see the book covers for the vast majority of the projects I’ve worked on in some way, shape, or form since January 2017, whether it be content editing, copyediting, or simple proofreading. If you click on the covers, it will take you to that book’s Amazon page. It’s still a little bit under construction (for example, the images for a particular client’s books are slightly taller than the covers for the rest, and I have no idea why because I set them to all be the same sizes), so I’ll have to make some minor formatting tweaks over the coming days. I’ll be updating the page once a month as books become available for purchase, too, so be sure to check back often!

I have had an exciting couple of months working with some new indie authors and really enjoying the projects they’ve had me editing and proofreading for them, and I’m really hopeful I’ll get to add even more great books to my list of projects!

NEW: Monthly Payment Plans!

Editing is expensive. I know that as well as anyone else, considering I am also a published author. Unfortunately, the price of editing can sometimes be financially prohibitive and can make an author feel disadvantaged from day one by having to choose to not get their book edited or proofread.

To do my part to help out, I am now introducing monthly payment plans to Edits by Jessica!

So, how will these monthly payment plans work?

Depending on the cost of the editing project, you’ll have a range of time frames to pay for the editing of your project:

Projects totaling $101-$300: 3 months

Projects totaling $301-$1,000: 6 months

Projects totaling $1,001+: 12 months

*Note: editing fees that total less than $100 are not eligible for the monthly payment plans.

Fees will be calculated at the beginning of the project. Because of the additional time spent invoicing and managing the account, a surcharge of 10% of the total project fee will be added to the overall cost of the project. Monthly payment amounts will be outlined to you prior to the start of the project.

The fee will be divided into several payments as outlined above. (Please note: if you require an alternative arrangement, please discuss this with me at the beginning of the project.)

The first monthly payment will be due at the start of the project.

Remaining payments will be invoiced on the 1st of each month beginning on the following month.

Each payment will be due by the 15th of that month.

In the event a payment is not received by 9 a.m. CST on the 16th of the month that it’s due, a late fee of $25 will be added to the following month’s invoice.

If you would like to discuss alternative arrangements from the above, please contact me and we’ll see what we can work out!
