Editing Services

What a feat it is to put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard and let words flow. Once you have those words, what next?

I am a professional freelance editor, with a degree in Communications and trained in rhetorical composition. Which means I’m here for you! What do I do? Catch every typo, dropped comma, and break in point-of-view. I respect your style, strengthen your voice, and praise what you’ve done well while pointing out what could be smoothed. I am passionate about helping you polish your work until it shines as it should.

Who I Work With: authors seeking traditional publication, self-publishing authors, ESL writers…and more!

What I Do

Below are some examples of what I edit. But if you don’t see your project listed, never fear. Chances are, I’ve done it and I invite you to email me to see if I can help with what you’re looking to have edited. I love perfecting punctuation and editing manuscripts of all genres.

Line Edit: $1 per page*
Content Edit: $2 per page*

For a FREE estimate, email me and include your page/word count and whether you are interested in line or content editing.

Referral Discount: refer me to someone who needs some editing help, have them mention your name when they hire me, and I’ll take $25 off your next editing job (or edit 25 pages for you for free).

What You Can Expect

I will read every line (and between them, too) and point out suggestions using Word’s Track Changes feature, so you must have Microsoft Word to see my comments. If you would like me to line edit, I’ll show you any typos or grammar errors. If you would prefer a more intense examination of your work, I will not only proofread but also help you cut the fluff, kill the passive, and unleash your best writing voice.
