About Hazard Editing Services

Hello and welcome to Hazard Editing. I work as a freelance editor and writer and I want to read your book. I am also a novelist, so my specialty is editing fiction. I run Hazard Cat, a Web zine dedicated to cat fiction, cat poetry and cat art.

I have read many indie books on Kindle and love how the publishing landscape is changing. What I see is this: big publishing is being tempered by underground literature. The Kindle gives authors freedom to publish their books for free in ebook format the way they intended the book to be read. Kindle is selling so much because it’s simply fun to read on. For me, there is nothing better than being able to have a book in about a minute while sitting on my couch drinking tea. And indie authors are bringing me some of the best books I’ve read in a while. Very different from the mainstream, which I like.

I’ve noticed many indie Kindle authors publishing their books for between $0.99 and $2.99. It’s enticing to get a book so cheap. Many of these writers are prolific and actually make decent money doing it.

I want to offer you my services because I love to read. I’ve been editing both educational texts and fiction since 2006. I want to edit indie novels because I believe in what indies are doing and I simply love editing. It is a passion for me. If you would like to try out my editing services, please feel free to contact me at hazardediting (at) yahoo.com.

I will edit your first five pages, double-spaced, free of charge so you can see if you like my style. I offer many different editing services that are listed on my Pricing Page.
