As a freelance editor, I aim to offer reasonable rates and premium packages for writers and non-writers alike.
An author myself, I understand that everyone needs an extra pair of eyes. After all, when others come to expect clean copy from you, you can bet on more meaningful connections within your industry and less stress about hitting Send (or Publish)!
With a degree in Communications/English and years of experience freelancing as an editor, I love to come alongside novelists, nonfiction writers, and those who just need someone to look over a resume.
It’s my honor to partner with you. Here’s how I can help…
- line editing/proofreading
- content editing
- college/professional document editing
- manuscript consulting
- website content management
For others’ opinions of previous editing work, please see my ENDORSEMENTS.
Please see below for a description of most services. Following your FREE consultation, I am happy to provide a complimentary quote for your project.
- Consultation: FREE
Let’s chat via email about your project, goals, and specific needs.
- Line Editing: $1 per page
Includes a word-by-word comprehensive read-through of your project and elimination of typos, spelling errors, and general grammar mistakes. Not sure the difference between a line edit and a content edit? Check out my FAQs here.
- Content Editing: $2 per page
In addition to all the features of a line edit, this package includes a line-by-line study of your project and thoughtful suggestions on where sentences can be smoothed, paragraphs strengthened, and pages polished. I promise to respect your individual writing style while pointing out what could be improved.
- College/Professional Document Editing: $15 flat rate (or up to 5 pages)
First impressions matter. Give yourself your best shot at achieving that A+ or the job you’ve always wanted. In this package, I offer a thorough examination of your essay/resume/etc, including detailed suggestions on how to improve key pieces from formatting to framing the perfect sentence.
- Manuscript Consulting: $300
This critique encompasses a broad sweep of your entire novel or nonfiction work. In contrast to the Content Editing package, consulting allows me to focus primarily on your strengths and weaknesses. I will offer feedback chapter-by-chapter on fiction techniques, story and scene structure, plot development, and characterization.
- Website Content Management: $15 per post/article (up to 1,000 words)
This package is designed primarily for bloggers + business owners. Need help polishing your website or blog? Draft away, and let me help you put the finishing touch on your copy. You can even choose however many posts/articles you’d like me to queue for any given month. I have a working knowledge of HTML code and, if preferred, can edit straight from your WordPress dashboard.
- Hourly Rate: $60/hour
Custom projects are billed on an hourly basis upon request. Includes a la carte editing needs. If specified when originally quoted, this hourly rate is also applied to jobs that run over the allotted time. Contact me for a quote on packaging multiple needs that don’t fit into above packages.
- Marketing Strategy Consultation: $150
Are you planning the promotion of a book launch, blog tour or book signing—and thoroughly overwhelmed? I would be delighted to help you spruce up your marketing plan or help you produce it from scratch. Jumpstart your writing career and learn the techniques to becoming a better writer and marketer of your works.

Rachelle has a sharp eye and kind heart, which makes her an excellent proofreader. She was very easy to work with and met our tight deadline with no problems. Next time we need proofreading, we’ll definitely ask Rachelle!

I was so pleased with Rachelle’s prompt service, her ability to help maintain my writing voice while polishing it up, and her uplifting and encouraging spirit. Definitely an editor worthy of her title. I will be using her services again.

I loved working with Rachelle. She was sharp, fast, clear in her notes, and covered everything from little typos to bigger issues that would have been seriously embarrassing had we missed them and gone to print. There’s no doubt in my mind that I’ll be using her editorial expertise on my next project.
It's been an amazing experience to have Rachelle work her magic on my blog posts. She refines my sentences and paragraphs into cohesive thoughts that are 10x better than before, and her feedback regarding intent and flow are invaluable! Already, Rachelle has saved me so much time editing my own work.
I’m so blessed to have worked with Rachelle! Her education shines in the way she combed through my story with care. Rachelle expertly balances critique with encouragement in a way that shows her heart for writers…and their future readers. Her engagement in my character’s lives and plight was only a testament of her commitment to the projects she takes on. Having her eyes on my manuscript not only gave me great ideas for sharpening up the details, but it also spurred me forward.

Rachelle is one of those people that I always want to be the first to read every blog post I write, every email sequence I draft. Not only is she quick to graciously notify me of the typos or stylistic inconsistencies she finds, but she is kind enough to tell me when I could explain something better or make a sentence read more smoothly. And even though Rachelle knows the grammar rules, she knows there is always a time and place to break them. I'm grateful for her attention to detail and her friendly editing style!
