NOTE: I never thought I would have to say this, but at this time, I am completely booked for anything word-related except for a single pass proofread through December 2023. I AM still able to take on formatting jobs at this time, and proofreads will be considered on a case-by-case basis based on my current workload. See below for my current rates for any future projects you may have.
I aim to make quality editing affordable for everyone, including authors who are just starting out and do not have a large budget for their books. I know a lot of us are strapped for cash, especially in these crazy times, so I'm more than happy to work with you on a payment plan that won't break the bank.
I offer two types of editing: developmental and copy/line. With developmental editing, you'll get notes on plot, structure, and flow of the story and we'll work on making your story as strong as it can be. With copy/line editing, you'll get correction of grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure and suggestions for wording, but no notes on the plot or structure of the novel unless I notice something extremely glaring.
To make sure we're a good match, I will do a free sample edit up to 4k words, from any part of the book you wish. Please allow 2-3 days turnaround for sample edit.

Formatting may be added for a reduced rate. See formatting page for details.
