You mean one-page? Okay, okay. I think I understand it now.
It seems that menage and interracial have been doing best, but recently a contemporary has made it to several best-seller lists.
I'm trying to find a position as an editor, so I applied to Evernight because the covers looked decent and the stories didn't seem bad. A few days later I got a brief response where I was told, "Rates are $1.50 per 1000 words edited." This seems a bit low and I checked with other authors and editors I know. They also believe this is not a fair amount to pay an editor.
Does anyone have any experience with Evernight's editing department or pay rates for editors?
I have an IR paranormal --under another penname-- (it's fluffy, not gritty) with them, my first e-published work.
I am pleased with their covers and their editing, and my sales have been constant since the book's release in late October. They pay on time and have had no issues with them. I would submit to them again.
If anyone is interested, they have two Antho Calls up:
I've sold them stories for 2 anthologies, 1 contemporary novella, 1 novelette and 1 short story with absolutely no problems at all thus far. Lightning speed responsiveness.
I have a Naughty Fairy Tale due to release 6/26. I just subbed it around mid-may so extremely fast turn around for that. That line has been doing very well for them, so they go extra fast on them. My head is still spinning. 9 hours between submission and acceptance on this one with word count for the line at 15k to 35k'ish
I just sold a story for their brand new Romance on the Go line for August 2012 release. Works are sold as stand-alones but the word counts are only 8000 to 15k, so short story writers take notice.
I did try and write another story for the anthology but it didn't make the cut. They felt it was rushed.. so I'll expand it and make it a stand alone. Again.
Like AuburnAssassin, I've also got a Romance on the Go coming out in a few days.
I'm still very happy with Evernight. Every cover they've done has wowed me to giddiness. I don't think I've once had an issue with it. Most of the authors I've met along the way are fab people, always willing to lend a hand for guest blogging for new releases.
My 10K word story "Otaku" just got accepted for their Romance On The Go line. Fast response. Fast contract and it's scheduled to be released in September I'm thrilled!
Congrats! I have a story in their upcoming MM antho and so far I've liked working with them.
