We love to read - and PROOFread! Just ask our friends who get annoyed when I tell them how many typos I find when I review their books! Seriously, if YOU need to have a second pair of eyes on YOUR work - even after it's published - then drop us a line over at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. We offer reasonable rates and great service - which gives you a better-looking product in the market place. My first venture into the publishing business began in the early ’80s when I first came to the USA from the UK. After a few years – and being a typical kid – I decided I wanted to “do something else”. Eventually I returned to the business and used my skills and so began two decades of work in the newspaper business – from proofreading and laying out ads, to copy input and editing – to eventually becoming Production Manager (PM) for one newspaper, and PM and Editorial Assistant to another. Prior to working in the newspaper industry, I spent many years as a typesetter and graphic artist in our home-town print shop. Back then, we used a state-of-the-art Compugraphic EditWriter 7500 photo-typesetting machine. It shone a strobe-like beam of light through an alphabet film strip – like a negative – which contained rows of the alphabet, plus the numerals – in four different fonts. The drum that held two of these alphabet strips revolved at high speed – and when you pressed a key on the keyboard, the computer emitted a beam of light through the negative’s corresponding letter on the strip – directly onto the photographic paper. The EditWriter created type ranging in size from 6-points all the way up to 72-points! The photographic roll of paper was eight inches wide, and after going through the chemical developer and fixer, the paper was now white, and the beamed letters were black. It was then rinsed, and hung out to dry on a line with clothes pins. We then had to run the paper through a hot wax machine which coated the backside, so we could literally “cut and paste” the copy onto our layout boards! And back then, we thought we had it “good”! Fast-forward another 15 years, and here I am – with life experiences tucked under my belt and an urge to write my own books. And so I did. You can too. I know how you feel – you have that urge to write, and see your efforts materialize. It is an almost surreal experience to have a book you actually wrote resting in your very own hands. Try it, you’ll like it! Let Beesville Books help you realize your dreams! Don’t forget to check out our affordable proofreading service and proofreading rates on our site. With every proofreading order completed, we will “gift you” one of our eBooks, for free! See our right-hand side bar for current categories under “Pages” / “Our Best Sellers”. (Some exceptions apply, see individual titles for eligibility). Until then, have a super day! Susan Gast THANK YOU to the ADMIN of Author's Info. for such a great site here!

Pros & Cons

Pros
I use Beesville Books' proofreading services ALL THE TIME!
What I do first is have my friends and family READ and proofread it first, THEN I send it over to Susan at Beesville Books for a final run through. That way, it costs me much less, and she says it's smoother sailing for her, and faster - meaning less of a charge to you. She is thorough! And fast.
