She Reads was one of 5 editors that I hired to edit the prologue of my new book. I am not sure how she got listed as receiving the whole job - as I did not hire her to do so rather another editor got the commission. She did finished the prologue on time, but price and the fact that the work was done by hand rather than using a product such as Word with Tracking Edits meant that the job went to one of her competitors.Jul 20, 2015Verified
She Reads has been communicative. She is working on the project so I don't yet have final comments based on results.Oct 30, 2014Verified
Sheri is a very efficient and honest editor. I will always use her services. My book is now on Amazon and doing well.Sep 26, 2014Verified
Sheri Thomson was very professional and respectful. She didn't belittle my work, and took the time to actually study my writing so that she could write an honest and extensive review. I respect her professionalizm and I highly recommend her.Jul 8, 2015
Sheri kindly agreed to read and review my newly published book. She did this very quickly, which I appreciated. More importantly, she did it very thoroughly. I'd be honored to work with her again in future!Sep 29, 2014

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am preparing to take a professional course in proofreading
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always loved reading. I was reading on a college level in elementary school. I applied in my late teens to work at a publishing house but was turned away because they said I was too young and get bored.My love of reading has never wavered. but the way books are put into the market place has definitely changed. I came across an author who was looking for people to read her book and write reviews quite by accident. I reached out to her and she accepted my offer. I love it. I recently had to stop working traditionally in an office due to some health issues. Freelancing allows me to work on my own time and schedule. I have always secretly pined to be able to read books and get paid for it. There are many books, blogs and e-content that get published with mistakes. I always pick up on them quickly. With so many unconventional writers and freelancer writers out there, the amount of errors I see in published works, blogs and websites have increased exponentially. If I can help a few writers have a flawless work, then thousands are happy. One of the top complaints in comments online is misspelled words. The second biggest complaint is the story taking too long to be told.
