Next week, we will all give thanks for our wonderful blessings and stuff ourselves silly. After that, we’ll be thinking about Christmas and shopping: Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. (I wonder if the other days of the week feel cheated. ) Since I am a small business owner (author, editor, speaker), I thought I would get in on the holiday sale fun. I currently have two specials going on–good until December 31, 2013.
1. My Editor 911 sale is currently 20 percent off the editing and/or proofreading of any written document. I usually figure this per page with a page being 12 point font, Times New Roman, double spaced, which works out to about 250-275 words a page. The normal price for a full edit averages about $3.00 a page (full edit means proofreading and editing for content/pacing/characters, etc). SO, the sale price is $2.40. The normal price for just a proofreading or just a style edit is $2.00 a page, so with the sale, it is $1.60. Please e-mail me with your project and your word count, and I can give you a quote with the sale price. My e-mail address is margo (at) margodill.com. If you want to take advantage of the sale price, BUT you are not going to have your manuscript ready for me until January, then you can pay a small deposit before 12/31/13 to secure your spot and send me the manuscript in January! I know how the holidays can be.
***Special note: For those of you doing NaNoWriMo 2013 (like me!), I am giving 25 percent off to anyone who completes 50,000 words during the month of November on their first 50,000 words. (If you wrote more than 50,000, then the rest is 20 percent off.) Contact me for more details!
2. FINDING MY PLACE: ONE GIRL’S STRENGTH AT VICKSBURG is a middle-grade (for readers 9 to 12) historical fiction novel set during the Siege of Vicksburg in Mississippi in 1863. To read a synopsis and reviews, please go to the Amazon page here. BUT DON’T BUY IT THERE! Until the end of the year, I am running a special on the book. For $9.50 (includes tax & s/h), you get an autographed book sent to anyone in the U.S. or Canada, a Finding My Place bookmark, and free gift wrapping. Plus the book will have the Eloquent Quill Award seal on the cover (pictured here) because Finding My Place just won the 2013 Eloquent Quill Award. If you are interested in getting this deal–the personalized book with the award seal and the bookmark gift wrapped–please fill out the PayPal form below the book cover photo. Please let me know the name of the person you want this personalized to AND e-mail me the address if you want me to send it directly to him/her. My email is margo (at) margodill.com
This would be the perfect gift for any child who enjoys reading in 3rd through 6th grade, an elementary school teacher, a librarian, or a home school parent!
