$1.99 in case anyone is wondering.

It looks like this book was $1.79 last time descenter posted this deal in February.

No reviews and the sample chapter is just an intro and the TOC. The intro contains grammatical mistakes and typographical errors. Since there isn't a physical copy available I am assuming this is self-published.

I keep wondering if there is a business opportunity offering editing services at a reasonable cost to authors who chose to self-publish through Amazon.

Hi Bowlingb,
Thank you for looking at my book. I did self publish this as is indicated in my author profile on Amazon. Normally this book is over three dollars, and I put it on sale once a month or so.

Make a reasonable editing service and I'll buy it. Good ones are nearly impossible to find, and I haven't found a reasonably priced one yet. Until then, I hope people can find the content of my books helpful as I continue trying to serve as best I can.

@descenter:
"Make a reasonable editing service and I'll buy it. Good ones are nearly impossible to find, and I haven't found a reasonably priced one yet."

So it looks like there might be some interest in this idea. Would you consider yourself to be a "typical" self published author (if there is such a thing), and what would you consider to be a reasonable price for proofreading services?

@descenter: What controls do you have over the material that appears in the sample chapter that amazon offers? Obviously I had some interest in your book but I really couldn't get any sort of feel for the content from the sample chapter.

@bowlingb @descenter
As someone who makes (quite a nice) living in project management, and without reading any portion of the document/book, I can only ask:

"The intro contains grammatical mistakes and typographical errors" @bowlingb... Would a great low cost proof reading service start with Microsoft Word?

I am no grammatical genius, but I can only imagine that if so many exists that warrant a mention, that a problem existed in the publishing/conversion and not the original document.

@bowlingb: Unfortunately I don't really have any control over the sample chapter except to enable it...

@wootcompare: I believe @bowlingb was talking about a few poorly worded sentences. This was run through word to fix any simple typos and grammatical errors.
