New Look, New Services

by Sarah Holroyd

Recently my copy editing business has undergone a transformation, getting a new look, a new name, and a new website. We are now Sleeping Cat Books, providing editing, proofing, formatting, and design services to independent authors. We work directly with self-publishing authors, providing professional-quality personalized service to help them achieve their publishing goals.

In addition to these services, we’ll also be publishing a themed anthology of fiction, poetry, and images in the spring of 2012, called The Storm is Coming. Submissions will be accepted through the link on our website until 31 December 2011.

We also offer an online short fiction writing workshop. This is a ten-lesson, self-paced short fiction workshop for works up to 5,000 words. The curriculum is similar to what you would find in a real-time workshop, but you may go through the lessons at your own pace. Each lesson includes at least one exercise, and the first two lessons are offered free of charge. At the end of the workshop, I will provide a full written critique of your story, a $70 value. For a limited time, the cost of this workshop has been reduced.

We have more changes planned for the future, including transitioning into a full publishing imprint, paying royalties to the authors we sign. We will also offer website design and hosting services for our authors, and several packages of related services to choose from. Stay tuned!
