I have no idea what you're charging because when you changed the categories, you left out my category so there's no sense in even trying to bid. My category is editing - not writing, not administrative assistance etc etc. It is a waste of my time. Your explanation of pricing is just arbitrary - how do you know how much work is really involved in editing a book, doing the layout and the design and prepping for printing. When you had fixed pricing per, it was easy and while sometimes high, it weighed out. Now it's just a pain. I loved Thumtack, referred people to it all the time. Checked it everyday. Bid often. Got some great clients. Now I don't bother. You truly did a disservice to all us editors and publishers when you changed things. Now it is just a waste of my time - I truly wish you'd go back, at least to the old categories, if I could look at editing jobs, I might bid again.
