You deserve an editor who luvs your work as much as you do.
An editor is perhaps the most important finishing touch to your book. Hiring one can be a pain in the butt. Trust me, I get it. So, let me tell you a little about what I do and why I love editing. First, understand I in no way want to rewrite your story. It is yours and I get that. Also, understand that there are two sides in my brain when I read a book; a reader who loves a good story, and an editor who loves her red pen. I am a bit old school when it comes to editing as I do not like adverbs and passive sentences. However, I understand that part of the joy of knowing the rules is knowing how and when to break them. That’s the difference between a good story and a great story.Let me help you polish your book with the following services:
When you work with me, I do not only rely on Grammarly and Word. I use them as tools, but I evaluate each word of your text on my own. As your reader, I am your friend. As your editor, I am a coach who will challenge you to create the best possible outcome.
This is a lot like proofreading except it happens earlier in the process before going to beta readers. This often involves a little more time because the piece is not as polished. This service is good to use after the author’s edits when the piece needs a more removed point of view. For this service, I offer two read-throughs. .005- .01/word (max word count 120,000)
Flash Fiction Edit
Entering a contest? I will proofread a piece of flash fiction, up to 2,000 words for free.
So how does this work?
I edit fiction and non-fiction books except any using the APA style guide, technical manuals, or pieces involving a high-level of content knowledge. If you are interested, please email me at email@example.com Share a synopsis with me and attach the first ten pages of your piece. This enables us to determine the best way to proceed. If we decide to work together, a 1/3 deposit is required with payment in full upon completion. All word counts are based on my version of MS Word and all documents must be in MS Word.
