My specialty is proofreading and editing board game rule books, components, and publicity pieces. 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. I've proofread everything from rulebooks to Facebook lore posts to Kickstarter pages and campaign updates.
When I edit a board game rule book, 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 promise a quick turnaround rate. I'm a stay-at-home mom and teach private music lessons, so I have a flexible schedule and can often return shorter projects within 24 hours. I don't guarantee that (unless we discuss it ahead of time!), but I strive to return projects as quickly as possible.
You can check out my gigs on Fiverr though I do prefer using Paypal because they charge lower fees! My rates generally start at $10/1000 words. For custom quotes, long-term partnerships, or other questions, please send me an email at RevisedByEmily@gmail.com.
