Authors need editors. It’s a fact of the publishing industry and whether you’re just starting out and submitting to publishers or looking to have a final polish put on your work before self-publishing, you need an editor. Not everyone can afford one. While My Author Home strives to keep our costs low because we believe that every author deserves a great edit, we also understand that not every author has the ability to do this due to a variety of factors including financial sitaution, disability, or family matters. My Author Home offers payment plans on all our editing services to try and reduce the financial burden. If you would like to inquire about this, please contact us.
We offer editing scholarships for qualified authors.
How does it work?
1. To become a sponsored author, apply. Tell us about your publishing history, your book, your goals, and why you are unable to pay for editing at this time.
2. If accepted, you’ll have 2 weeks to raise 25% of the editing cost from your social network. These will come in the form of pledges, which must be paid within 72 hours of the initial 25% being raised.Note: If you can afford to pay 25% of the editing cost up front, reach out to us. We offer payment plans.
3. If you DO raise the 25%, we’ll put your request live on our site for other people to donate to until the request is fulfilled. If you DO NOT receive pledges to cover at least 25% of the cost, then no one is charged and we do not accept the book.
We charge our full editing rates for scholarship books. To see what they will be, visit our editing services page.
