Freelance Job Opportunities


Unless you've been in a cave lately, you've heard the controversy over the book, A Million Little Pieces, by James Frey. It was Oprah's October pick for her book club, which of course practically guarantees it being a best seller -- which it became.

Today, the anchors on CNN were discussing the hullabaloo about how can an author get away with telling blatant lies like that, and Soledad O'Brien, one of the anchors, responded something to the effect of, "Some publisher wouldn't cough up the $25 or $30 thousand dollars/year it would cost to hire a factchecker."

My first reaction, was, "Yahoo!", somebody realizes the value of this all-too-forgotten craft as an independent position. BUT my very next reaction was, "How sad that this is the salary quoted for this still under-regarded position."

These days, a copy editor may be a factchecker, proofreader and copy editor all rolled into one. Let's hope the publishers are listening and will soon be posting want ads for help. Mr./Ms. Hiring Official, I'll gladly post your ad free on

Just a thought.
