About Bruno Literary Services:

I charge .01 a word for an expert proofread. (50,000 words = $500). For an edit it’s .02 a word (50,000 words = $1,000. That includes a follow-up proofreading/edit of the entire book after I send you my first completed work. I.e., I proofread/edit your book, and you make the changes. Then I proofread/edit it a second time. I work in 5,000-word blocks. You send me 5,000 words; I proofread/edit them. Then I send it back to you with a Pay Pal invoice for $50. That way if you’re not satisfied with my work you can stop at any time. The second proofread/edit takes place after I have proofread/edited your entire manuscript, and you have made the changes.

I’ve been in the writing business since the mid-1970s. I’ve used proofreaders/editors many times. Some want to get paid half up front and half when they finish. Several times, I felt I didn’t get my money’s worth. The way I do it, it benefits both the writer and me. I only get paid for the work I actually do. And the writer, if not satisfied, can cancel at any time.

It’s a win-win situation
