Thrifty Thursday: Little Pear Editing Services

Remember infomercials that would sale you something you didn’t need or something you did need but didn’t know? They used to always start off with a question. No matter how cheesy it was you always remembered what they were selling.

Infomercials used to start off a little like this….

Are you a writer ? Are you tired of being “cheated” by so called editors? Do you need quality editing services that won’t break your budget? Why not try Little Pear Editing Services?

( Just kidding) But seriously Little Pear Editing Services is this great little find. And when you find a good thing you have to share it. My sista-friend Patrice finally started her own editing services after years of beta-reading and essentially editing for free. She turned her talent and passion into something profitable. Words cannot express how proud I am of her. She calls her editing services Little Pear (named after a member of her family) but believe me there is nothing little or lacking about her work. When I tell you she goes the extra mile and beyond for her authors believe it.

Let me introduce you to the women behind this little jewel:

Patrice is a sarcastic, book-loving nerd with a penchant for cats and internet foolishness. When she's not wasting time on social media, she can be found indulging in her other passion which is making her own handmade bath and body goodies.  She is a native Washingtonian ( few of a dying breed).

What exactly is little Pear?

Little Pear Editing was born from one voracious reader’s desire to help indie authors craft and publish their best effort. I consider myself to be a veteran reader of fiction, specifically, romantic fiction, having read over 500 romance novels in the last five years (That is not an inflated number and very low by some standards). I have always had an interest in the nerdy, technical side of writing-and reading, and that is the spelling, grammar usage, characterization…The more I read, the more I found myself becoming less of a reader for pleasure and more of a critic. Call me the Roger Ebert of romance writing.

  1. So cute. But with so many people just uploading books to Amazon and direct publishing, I wish they would take the time to upload it directly to an editor first. I know me, I can let go of little things when they are far and few between but some things just pull you out of a read and people seem to think editors just look at things like grammar. They have to understand they look at your story and can point out plot point holes and name changes things that will drive a reader mad!

    1. I agree! Please invest in your work before you publish. I don't get how authors get upset with readers for pointing out the errors.
