One of the most important rules of writing is to have someone else look over your work. It’s simply too easy to miss that typo, missing word, extra word, wrong word . . . well, you get the idea.How can I help? As a writer myself, I bring years of experience to help make your work shine. In case you’re wondering about my qualifications – and you should – I have been a professional copy editor and proofreader since 2009. I’ve edited government documents, blogs, manuscripts, and newspaper articles. I currently freelance with a small publisher but have more than enough time to take on indie books.
In terms of education, I have a Publishing certificate from Toronto Metropolitan University.
Here is a breakdown of what I offer.
Light Copy Edit‘ve added the option of a light copy edit service for those looking for that little something extra. In addition to all the benefits of proofreading, light copy editing includes:
The light copy-editing package is $0.006 per word. When booking, please indicate that you would like this package. I require a 50% deposit with the remainder due at the time of completion. All transactions are usually through PayPal and in US dollars, but money transfer through Wise is also accepted. Depending on availability, my turnaround time is approximately 7-21 days.
Heavy Copy EditA heavy copy edit is a deeper dive into your book. Often, books have far too much narration or dialogue that kills the flow of the book, or too much telling and not much in way of showing. This kind of edit would help bring a balance between narration and dialogue.
Other features include:
This form of editing also includes everything offered in light copy editing as well as a detailed style sheet.
The heavy copy-editing package is $0.0085 to $0.01 per word. When booking, please indicate that you would like this package. I will ask you for a sample to determine the cost per word.I require a 50% deposit with the remainder due at time of completion. All transactions are usually through PayPal and in US dollars, but money transfer through Wise is also accepted. Depending on availability, my turnaround time is approximately 7-21 days.
In terms of what genres I work with, while I’m open to working on any genre, my specialties are romance, women’s fiction, suspense/thriller, contemporary anything, fantasy, and erotica. I also enjoy historical fiction and steampunk. Please note: I do not edit books with animal cruelty of any kind. For example, if you feel the need to kill a dog in your book or abuse an animal, I’m not the editor for you.
