Find out how to read for profit from home... You don’t need a degree but you must be good with words!
Every year in the UK almost 200,000 books are published – and nearly all of them have to be checked by proofreaders and copy-editors! And even if they are new books put into e-book format, they still have to be checked!
Did you know that rates of pay for proofreaders working at home are over £20 an hour? And that you need check or ‘mark up’ as little as 10 pages an hour to earn this hourly rate?
Find one or two publishers to send you work – in the form of typescripts or sets of proofs (for the more experienced, on disc, known as editing on-screen) – and you could be earning over £120 a day, just for five or six hours’ reading!
However, today’s marketplace is more competitive than ever so you will need to learn and develop new skills to enable this to become a reality.
That’s where I can help with my unique offer. In just a few seconds you can take advantage – if you are prepared to put in some hard work first.
The recommended or suggested minimum freelance hourly rate for proofreading as of 1 March 2012 is (according to SfEP, the Society for Editors and Proofreaders) from £20.75, from £24.20 for copy-editing, and from £27.90 for substantial editing and rewriting. The next update on freelance rates is due March 2013. You will be expected to read 10 to 15 pages per hour to qualify for these rates.
I say this because these days it seems everybody expects something for nothing; they think they can have their cake and eat it! Good luck to them, but isn’t it so much easier when you can rely on a professional mentor to get you started in the first place?
In just a few seconds you can download a complete proofreading and copy-editing ‘masterpiece’ with a set of FREE exercises. Over 260 pages in the original book that cost me two years of my life to write and publish, but, wait for it, it was well worth the trouble! There are many five-star reviews on Amazon!
Delve into this book and you won’t be able to put it down! It makes for a good read and whilst being entertaining and stimulating you won’t realise you are learning! Although it is written in a slightly informal, almost quirky style, it delivers its message thoroughly, concisely and unambiguously. The chapters on finding work, contacts, business tips, etc. are invaluable. I will certainly be following Mr William Critchley’s advice. Overall it is a mine of great information, a reference book to cherish.
It’s called a ‘pocket book’ but it’s not small. It’s a pocket book because it contains absolutely all you need to know about how to run your own business, proofreading books (manuscripts and typescripts) from home.
That big red tick means something in proofreading. It means ‘stet’, or ‘let it stand’, from the Latin. It’s written in the margin to indicate that something originally crossed out should be left just the way it was.
After reading this e-book, I can guarantee that you will know not just enough to get started but enough to earn you a big tick from any publisher. I’ll teach you how to read for profit.
If you ever feel like quitting a horrible day job and you want to work from home, this could be just what you’ve been looking for. Freelancers make pretty good money. Work might not be as regular as you’d like in the beginning but if you are prepared to learn the right skills – with my easy-to-follow and acclaimed home study course (the only complete and fully downloadable Proofreading and Editing Course on the market today!) – YOU could soon start making enough money to pay for all those extra items you really want. No more wish lists either! I’ll reveal to you all the secrets of successful freelancing from home.
You don’t have to learn all this on your own either. That would be too time consuming, costly, and frustrating. Just follow my step-by-step guidance and you will soon become, quite literally, an expert on proofreading and copy-editing, and if you take my proofreading course as well, you’ll be fully set up to make money from home.
Why not download my new e-book, The Pocket Book of Proofreading, and start today! It’s packed with all the precise and accurate information you’ll need.
I have been “doing a bit” of proofreading and copy-editing over the years. I have paid over two hundred pounds for a correspondence course and bought several hallowed tomes on the subject.
William Critchley has done a fantastic job of writing this excellent book. It covers everything I did on my correspondence course and brought the material fully up to date. It is a much friendlier read than some of the other books I have read on the subject.
There really is everything you need to become or improve as a freelance proofreader or copy-editor. The online material is an excellent adjunct to the book (and is very reasonably priced). There is even email support should you require help.
There is a wealth of knowledge from someone who really has been there and done that! I highly recommend this fantastic resource and I shall refer to mine often.
Publishers come in all shapes and sizes, from the Oxford University Press (OUP), employing thousands of people, and printing thousands of books annually, and using a wide variety of freelance copy-editors and proofreaders, to publishers that publish only a few titles every year.
Those who successfully find work can be financially secure – even in a recession like we are in now. Here’s one testimonial of many to illustrate the point.
Have just finished my sixth book for them
R. B. Thomas, referring to a well known London publisher
An average book is, say, 250 to 350 pages long. That means a proofreader may be able to charge 25 to 35 hours at £20 an hour, which would bring in £500 to £700 for just one book! (Copy-editors earn more but first of all you need to master all the proofreading skills from The Pocket Book of Proofreading.)
This book grabs you from the first page... Very informative and inspiring. If you want to take up proofreading forget all the other books and expensive courses, buy this and the accompanying course (details within the book).
