Step right in, gals and pals, and see what we have on the menu.
I’ve been wracking my brain trying to come up with a way to earn a living between publications and to keep the bank account green during the lean months (thanks, instability of a career in the arts!), and a few months ago I had an epiphany: I love proofreading.
Like, I really like it. I see posts all the time from people in the proofreading stage treating their bleeding eyeballs after a day debating comma placement, but I get a kick out of it. It’s relaxing, it’s satisfying, and I’m good at it.
“Finally,” I thought, “I’d be able to put my four years of university and the fancy piece of paper I got at the end to good use!”
So that’s what I’m doing.
As of now, I’m officially opening my doors to Raven’s Quill Press Author Services, offering proofreading to all genres and variety of writings. To learn more, or to contact me for details, just click here.
What does this change mean for the blog?
It means you won’t see any more posts directly related to my work as Krista Walsh, fantasy author. For those updates, you can check out my new fancy website, which I’ll be keeping up to date with all my publishing information.
Over here, you’ll find more industry-related posts: my experience as an independent author and how it might help others hoping to go in the same direction.
For example, right now I’m battling inDesign, trying to learn how to properly format my paperbacks. It’s a pain in the butt, and I have been able to find NO resources online. My solution is to learn it myself, and then post the step-by-step so it’s out there for anyone else who wants to give it a try.
There might still be a few personal posts as they relate to writing and publishing, but most of those will likely wind up on my author page.
So make yourselves comfortable, and let’s see what trouble we can get into.
