Compare Quotes

Reedsy is already making waves in the publishing industry. Last month, we gave authors the best marketplace to find publishing professionals. Today marks a new milestone with Reedsy: we’re allowing authors to request quotes from freelance editors and illustrators.

Browse the marketplace

Reedsy allows you to browse our curated network of publishing professionals. Access to these people is no longer the sole privilege of publishing houses. Now indie authors can find them in a single click.

We’re very proud of the people we have on board. We’ve lost track of how many bestsellers we’ve seen in their portfolios.

Select and submit a brief

You can now send a uniquely designed brief to both editors and designers, detailing the requirements for your new collaboration.

Compare quotes

Reedsy makes it very simple to receive offers, allowing authors to go through each quote and compare them. Freelancers can reply with a summary of the service they will provide, along with samples of their work and a payment schedule.

Accept, negotiate or decline offers

Upon receiving an offer, authors can negotiate the terms of the agreement with the freelancer.

Once you’ve made your decision, accept the offer from the freelancer you want to work with to begin the collaboration. Oh, and if we forgot to mention it, you can do it from your laptop, your tablet or phone: Reedsy is fully responsive!

This is one more step for Reedsy. But that’s not all. Collaboration through email is a thing of the past and we have amazing features coming…

We can’t wait to show you everything.
