Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $40

I am an experienced editor with a Bachelor's in English, three months away from a Master's of English, focusing on Traditional Studies, or, Literature. My hobby is literary history, but I make it a point to stay abreast of contemporary literature and am adept at analyzing and crafting solid plots, characters, conflicts, allegories, and descriptions while maintaining an eye for good grammar and punctuation. I am well read, well rounded, and well up to the challenge of any manuscript. Personally I prefer reading fiction, but in my four years...

Service Description

I will edit manuscripts of any length for content and style. If needed, I can also help with title selection, light ghostwriting, and creation of promotional materials, i.e. back cover summations. I will offer general advice and feedback on the manuscript as a whole, as well as technical correction and specific suggestions on word choice, character development, and scene creation. Editing services can be tailored to what the author feels is the primary concern with the book, and I am open to as long or short an editing process as the author requires. My hourly fee is based on an estimate of approximately ten pages per hour, depending on the quality and density of the manuscript, so projecting costs and timelines for any project is easily done. I prefer communication through email as it makes it easier to be clear and professional throughout the project. Every project is totally customizable, per the author's preference. I am flexible and adapt easily to any situation that may arise in the course of editing.
