Copyediting/Proofreading Services

Are you almost ready to publish your novel, but you need someone to catch those last pesky typos, errors, and smatterings of wayward punctuation? You've come to the right place!

I offer an affordable freelance copyediting/proofreading service.

I've always loved words and punctuation. I'm a perfectionist with a knack for editing, and I'm passionate about ridding the world of typos and other errors. I would love to help you make your books shine!

I firmly believe in keeping the author's voice and story intact and true to their vision, while catching errors, inconsistencies, and awkward wording, so that the work is as polished as I can make it.

Not limited to only novels. I'd be happy to smooth sentences and comb typos out of short stories, blog posts, web pages, etc.—just message me and ask!

Please note that I reserve the right to turn down any project due to lack of time or any other reason.

I do not edit horror, steamy romance, or full-length nonfiction books.

Also note that I do not beta-read, and my copyediting service is not a content edit. (Meaning: I fix textual errors and inconsistencies, but do not give story feedback or advice.)

When I edit, I read through the manuscript three times, and I use the Track Changes feature in Word.

Rates

$4 per 1,000 words. (Example: a 50,000 word manuscript would be $200.) Rounded down to the nearest thousand words.

Flat fee of $10 for anything under 3,000 words.

I take payment through PayPal.

I strive to do my best work and to be affordable as well. Prices are somewhat negotiable. Shoot me an email and we can discuss it!
