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 a 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.
I use Chicago Manual of Style.
When I edit, I read through the manuscript three times, and I use Word's Track Changes feature.
I prefer to work with .doc or .docx formats (but will consider using Google Docs if that is your preference!).
My specialties are editing fantasy novels, but I'm happy to edit most genres (see below for exceptions), and in addition to novels, I will also edit short stories, blog posts, web pages, etc. Just message me and ask!
I do not edit horror, dystopian, romance with explicit scenes, or full-length nonfiction books.
I do not offer beta-reading or developmental/content edit services. (I fix textual errors and inconsistencies, but do not give story feedback or advice.)
Please note that I reserve the right to turn down any project due to lack of time or any other reason.
$5 per 1,000 words. (Example: a 50,000 word manuscript would be $250.) Rounded down to the nearest thousand words.
Flat fee of $25 for 5,000 words or under.
I take payment via PayPal or check.
Prices are somewhat negotiable, especially if you would like less than my full three passes. If you have any questions, shoot me an email and we can discuss it!
You can email me at email@example.com with any questions and to ask about availability!
