My specialty is editing and consulting on board game rulebooks and components, rpg materials, and publicity pieces related to both. Your friends and fans may be good at catching some things, but a paid, experienced proofreader will catch more and pay attention to every last detail. By hiring someone to look through your game with completely fresh eyes, you can simulate a new player cracking open your game for the first time. Does that rule make sense? Does this one really just need a picture to convey the meaning as clearly as possible, or can that picture be removed to allow for more space on the page? What about those obnoxious English grammar rules?
When I edit a board game rulebook, I look not only at grammar and spelling but also at clarity, consistency, and general logic. I leave notes, ask questions, and correct errors. When I find something that doesn't make sense, I'll let you know with a comment communicating what I assume it means and a recommendation on a clearer way to state it. If I've technically completed a project for you but you realize there are a few things you have questions about, reach out to me and I'll be more than happy to help out on those few extra things.
I also do my best to ensure a quick turnaround rate. I'm a stay-at-home mom and teach private music lessons, so I generally have a flexible schedule and can often return short projects within 48 hours. I don't guarantee that (unless we discuss it ahead of time!), but I strive to return projects as quickly as possible.
My preferred form of payment is Paypal though I'm open to other suggestions as well! My rates generally start at $0.02/word, though simple jobs may be lower and complex, highly detailed, or rush jobs may be higher. I usually request 20% up front, 40% upon initial delivery of a first read-through, and the remaining 40% upon the conclusion of my work.
