Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22

I've been the managing editor of my publishing house for 6 years. I have experience with and still regularly perform developmental & line editing and proofreading. I have worked with many authors over the years, and am capable of editing content without sacrificing the author's individual voice/style.

I work primarily in LGBTQIA romance and erotica and am familiar with most subgenres: fantasy/urban fantasy, contemporary, paranormal/supernatural, sci-fi, steampunk. I have also done some editing for webcomics/graphic novels.

Service Description

I can do:

- developmental editing: reading through your manuscript with a fine-toothed comb to note any inconsistencies/discrepancies, ensure characters remain "in character", find any plot holes or problematic material - a full review arc and content of the story.

- line editing: reading through to verify spelling, grammar, punctuation, word choice, improve flow of sentences by suggested alternate phrasing, consistency of usage.

- proofreading: a final check for spelling, spacing, punctuation, etc before publication
