Just a short note to say that the Facebook page for Proof-Ed is going to be unavailable for the foreseeable future as I would like to close my personal account which also means closing my Proof-Ed page. Any enquiries should be directed to me by email (sarah[at]proof-ed.com).
My availability for Proof-Ed will be increasing from around November 2017 when I am planning to begin working more full-time hours as a proofreader and editor after a successful couple of years thus far. Thank you for all of your custom getting me to this point. It is a pleasure to read your research and other writings.
With best wishes,
Hi everyone. Thank you for visiting the website today. I just wanted to let you know that I am taking a short holiday from 1st – 9th of May so I will not be answering any emails during this time. I will respond to any queries when I return.
May is already fully booked, although I have some odd spaces for articles (less than 10,000 words ideally) or bibliographies, so it is worth getting in touch if you have an end-of-May/early-June deadline. June has lots of availability at the moment.
Please remember that it is never too soon to get in touch! I have a very busy schedule as Proof-Ed is only undertaken in the evenings and weekends (at the moment…) so I always appreciate as much warning as can be given. I hate to turn anyone down.
In the meantime I will say goodbye and wish you all a good week.
With best wishes,
March is now fully booked along with the first week of April. I have availability for the following three weeks of April, but I would advise contacting me sooner rather than later if you would like some proofreading done during this time.
I will be having a small break from work for the first week of May, but will be taking on work from the 7th of May onwards.
As always, it’s never too early to reserve a space in my diary – I even have some work planned for 2018!
I look forward to hearing from you and wish you all the best with ongoing research!
From January 2017, I am very pleased to be offering 10% discounts for early career researchers and those who are unwaged. This discount will automatically be applied to invoices for all those who qualify.
I also offer 10% student discounts on articles and chapters, and a heavily discounted set rate for theses and dissertations.
Happy New Year!
I would like to wish all of my customers, and their loved ones, a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017.
It is nice to be able to post on a website so that I can send these good wishes to you and can thank you all – wherever you are in the world – for your kind custom over the last year.
I hope to read the work of both new and returning customers in the new year, and am already looking forward to proofreading for those customers who have reserved a spot in my diary.
Thank you and wishing ALL OF YOU the best,
Wishing all of my customers a very happy Christmas and hoping you are all spending it in the ways that you wish to.
As promised, I am updating my availability as it inevitably changes throughout the weeks.
I now have availability for the last two weeks of November up until December 4th. I could read articles or book chapters in this time, or one standard sized thesis provided I had as much advanced warning of this as possible.
My schedule for the rest of October remains full.
The first two weeks of November are accounted for.
The second half of December will have some availability for articles, but I will be taking some time off to enjoy Christmas before returning to work fairly early on in the new year, depending on necessity!
Thanks for checking in!
Thank you to those who sent me work this September. It is reassuring to know my blog posts on availability are useful to my customers and to those thinking of using the service. Here is as updated version of my availability for the rest of the year:
October: Fully Booked.
November: Fully Booked.
From around the 13th of December until the end of the year and into January, I will have plenty of availability, though of course I will have a couple of days off to enjoy the festivities of Christmas! December (and January) can be a busy time for proofreading as many customers are trying to submit work before the end of the year or have it corrected before the start of a new semester, so I would advise contacting me sooner to avoid any disappointment.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s always best to contact me as far in advance as possible to secure the date that you need for your own deadlines, but please take into consideration that you will also need time to implement the changes I have suggested, and to go through the corrections carefully. It’s also worth pointing out that if you have edited your work to the best of your ability, this helps me to read faster than I would be able to if no editing has been carried out.
Finally, please keep checking the website (or Facebook page) for updates on my availability. I will post if a slot becomes available due to a cancellation or completion of worker sooner than anticipated.
Thank you for reading!
Sarah @ Proof-Ed.
Just a short blog post to say that I am fully booked up for July 2015 but am able to take on work for August.
I would like to thank you all for your custom, especially those who have shared my posts, given testimonials for my website and those who have given great reviews of Proof-Ed’s service to friends and colleagues via word of mouth. It seems this has been the most successful way of promoting my relatively new business and I am very grateful to those of you who have recommended me, or who have returned to use Proof-Ed for second, or even third times.
I expect that the summer months will be quieter once July is over (most work is from students looking to submit work to journals before the end of the academic year), so do get in touch if you have anything that you would like me to take a look at over the holidays. I am always pleased to hear from you!
With best wishes, and hoping you have a great summer,
A quick post to let those of you who use PayPal know that Proof-Ed now has a PayPal business account. Hopefully this will help those customers overseas who have been stung with bank transfer charges in the past. I am informed that you do not need to have a PayPal account in order to transfer money to me via PayPal – hopefully that comes from a reliable source of information!
A special thanks to Brendon Neilson who was my ‘guinea pig’ as I set this up, and who was very patient while I worked out a few issues!
Thank you for your custom,
