It’s Friendly Neighborhood Friday again and I’m here with Rachel Lemons. She’s an editor, something NaNoWriMo participants will need in the next few months. Here’s a bit about Rachel’s business.
Lemons to Lemonade Editing Services is run by Rachel Lemons, who is a novelist as well as a proofreader. If you are a writer looking to self-publish your work and are in need of an editor, Lemons to Lemonade Editing Services is for you!
Without further ado or a don’t, here’s the interview!
D.R.- Coffee or tea?
R.L.- Coffee is life.
D.R.- Dogs or cats?
R.L.- I have fifteen cats, so I had better say cats if I value my life. They are staring at me as I answer this, after all!
D.R.- Cake or pie?
R.L.- Cake. Especially any variety of chocolate cake.
D.R.- What is your favorite color?
R.L.- I love all shades of pink and purple, but my all time favorite color is lilac.
D.R.- What’s your Patronus?
R.L.- According the official Pottermore quiz, it’s a wild cat.
D.R.- Where’d you get the idea for your business/goods/services?
R.L.- I got the idea when talking to a fellow writer. She asked me if I could proofread her book for her, as her previous editor had missed many grammatical errors. I said yes, she liked my work, and I began Lemons to Lemonade Editing.
D.R.- What genres do you feel comfortable supporting?
R.L.- I am most comfortable with fantasy (high fantasy in particular) as that is the genre I write myself. I enjoy others as well, however, and am perfectly happy to edit dystopias, romances (but not erotica), young adult books, and pretty much anything in between.
D.R.- What do you have to offer authors?
R.L.- I offer proofreading services. I hunt down spelling and grammatical errors and make note of awkward sentences and phrasing, then suggest changes.
D.R.- Do you have any services that might benefit readers or other artists?
R.L.- My services as a proofreader are very valuable to both readers and writers, as reading books full of spelling and grammar mistakes often takes away from the story. No one wants to read something that is so error-ridden that it makes no sense. I ensure that books have as few mistakes as possible.
D.R.- Where can we find your services on the Internet?
R.L.- You can contact me and learn more about my proofreading services on my Facebook page.
