Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22

I'm an experienced and genre-flexible line editor, known for an honest but gentle style. I copy-edit as well as offering stylistic suggestions to polish your prose. My specialties are descriptions and character development. I've helped many clients race to the top of the Amazon bestseller lists. Most editors only work in one or two areas; signing up means you’re getting more for less, from a person who really loves working with people as well as books!

Service Description

I provide a package deal that includes copy-editing (grammar, punctuation, spelling, and typo correction) and also stylistic suggestions (word choice, sentence order, redundancy correction, and other subtle details) for one price. I also offer minor developmental suggestions on the plot, characters, pacing, and atmosphere. It's an unbeatable combination that results in above-par work and beautifully-written novels.
