Hi I'd like to offer my services as a free lance editor. My prices are very affordable. I've joined Mocha Memoirs editing staff and I've also begun accepting new clients. I will edit your manuscript (proofread and/or heavy edits) and place it in the trim size of your choice, if requested. I can also convert into a pdf file that is ready for uploading; as well as covert your manuscript into ebook file. Contact me at

Hi everyone, this is Sheree Renée Thomas waving from Memphis! I edit mostly fiction and have edited several memoirs. Two of my anthologies, in the Dark Matter series, were honored with the World Fantasy Award and one was named a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. I'm a former Co-Chair of the National Writers Union and have been working in publishing for 15 years. I began at Random House, then freelanced for several other major publishers, before launching my own business.

I love writing and love working with writers, especially science fiction writers, so thanks for inviting me here.

Right now I'm editing speculative poetry for Strange Horizons, the online magazine (an award-winning, professional market). Please visit the zine’s submission guidelines, read what they have published in the past, and send your best speculative poetry--or encourage your SF/F clients to consider doing so. Strange Horizons is a great magazine that was the pioneer in online science fiction publishing.

I am also a juror for the annual Carl Brandon Society awards. The Carl Brandon Parallax Award is given to works of speculative fiction created by a self-identified person of color. This Award includes a $1000 cash prize. The Carl Brandon Kindred Award, named in honor of Octavia E. Butler, includes a $1000 cash prize. The award is given to any work of speculative fiction dealing with issues of race and ethnicity; nominees may be of any racial or ethnic group.

In summary, if you are a writer of color who has published a SF/F novel, story collection, or a story in another publication, please visit the website posthaste and send your work. Right now we are looking at works published in ’09, but we will also begin reading works for ’10 in January. The nomination deadline for SF/F works published in 2010 is February 28, 2011.

All Best,

Sheree Renée Thomas

A heavy edit for an author revised work. A proofread for a rough draft.
Comment by K. Ceres Wright on August 27, 2010 at 12:03pm
That would depend on what services you want. Do you want a proofread or a heavy edit? Or something in between?
Comment by Whiyayul & Diop Malvi on August 27, 2010 at 11:59am
Not enough subscribers and advertisers, and mediocre writing inside. How much a 336 p. work gonna cost a kid,say?
Comment by Susan Bryant on August 27, 2010 at 11:48am
Yes, working as a contractor and dealing with pricing has been a new experience for me. I am a former, 15-year newspaper editor -- 10 of those at the South Florida Sun Sentinel. I started my career as a copy editor, but was quickly promoted to an assignment editor. That involved working with staff and freelance reports, helping them develop their stories and then editing them comprehensively for content and depth, etc. So, I am skilled in both kinds of editing.

Thanks to Milton for asking me to join this group; I've been busy and didn't know about it before he informed me, :)

I'm also an editor, specifically a freelance proofreader and copy editor. I have a website (which you can find if you search for Peregrine Editorial Services) which is still under construction but has contact info.

I agree w/Milton's advice on how to select a book editor. Finding the right editor for one's work is the same as shopping for the right car or house: it's worth your time to ask around among other writers, visit at least a handful of websites offering editing services to compare pricing and services, and waiting 24 hours before making a final decision.
Comment by Susan Bryant on August 26, 2010 at 10:24pm
To jump into Milton's and Valjeanne's discussion about pricing, I charge by the hour, because everyone's quality of writing is different. So, I ask to review the work the author/writer wants edited, then give an quote, based on how long I estimate it will take me.

What happened to the black magazines of the '90s?

He sat at his desk, woozy. He tried to move, his arms unresponsive. He searched for help, moving into the aisle in his swivel chair only to find all his coworkers had abandoned him. Was he being drugged? If so, it was the simplest scene he could imagine.Whoever was trying this was extremely stupid or extremely powerful. He'd find out soon enough.

Call for abstracts for "Images of Blackness in Graphic Novels"

CFP: Images of Blackness in Graphic Novels, Past and Future (Extension to 3/31/18)

by Brian Yates

This edited volume will offer an opportunity for authors to investigate the ways in which blackness is reimagined in both mainstream and independent comics. Specifically, I propose responding to the following questions: What are the ways in which heroism is redefined by black characters? How are black futures reimagined? What gendered arguments are made through this medium? What are the challenges in presenting to black audiences in this largely white genre? How do the creators depict the continent of Africa and/or communities in the African Diaspora? How are black bodies presented in graphic comics and novels? Finally, how are themes of social justice specific to black communities presented in this…

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
