Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $13

I have been interested in writing since I was old enough to hold a crayon! In my younger years I liked to write fantasy short stories and then poetry as I got a little older. Once I reached high school, I found my calling in editing.

I loved English class assignments where I would not only get to write, but we would pass around our assignment and edit each other's work. My senior year, my dreams came true with a creative writing course, PLUS English.

Through college I was the go-to-gal for all my friends when they had an assignment because...

Service Description

I offer editing, ghost writing for fiction, and writing coaching services.

Fees would depend on the type of service and the timeframe. Craft coaching is a flat fee of 350, unless combined with developmental editing.

My developmental package is for those who have a first draft completed, an idea, or even somewhere inbetween! We work on character development, plot development, outline (which is not done in typical outline fashion!), editing each chapter as it's complete (which I check against the outline), plus a free line edit once the original edits are complete. Clients looking for additional edits on changes or structural editing the second time around, will incur a fee (although smaller than if line or structural editing fees).

Once you have a manuscript you would like to see published, we will work on your syopsis and pitch (if you're looking to submit to literary agencies or publishing houses), with the manuscript formatted for submission. If you are looking for self-publishing, then the manuscript will be formatted for such. Also, in this instance, I would take care of creating your front and end matter.

Line editing and structural editing also available.

Please note that synopsis and pitch services may be purchased separately ONLY for clients who purchase an editing package. These are not standalone services offered.

If you would like a book review (right now only accepting shorts under 35,000 words), a PDF must be sent to me. Charge is $15 per review....
