Editing Services

Even the best writer needs an editor. I can help! Got a novel you’ve been working on for months (or maybe even years)? How about an article you hope to submit somewhere? Maybe you’re putting together a work of nonfiction on your favorite topic. Whatever you’re writing, I want to help you make it even better.

RATES (all payments accepted via PayPal)

Proofreading: $0.01/word

This is the most basic form of editing. I will check for spelling errors, grammatical mistakes, and punctuation issues.

Copy Editing: $0.015/word

In addition to checking for spelling and grammatical errors, I will check for continuity, accuracy, and readability.

Developmental Editing: $0.02/word

This is the most thorough edit. I will provide comments on all aspects of your writing including thematic elements and structure. 

Story Development: $100

Do you have an idea for a novel but you’re not exactly sure how to get started? Maybe you have an outline, or a few characters, or just an idea you’ve been playing around with. Share your idea with me (either in writing or in a phone call) and I will send you written notes and suggestions for how to get started. (If you need additional help, each subsequent session will be $50.)

Please note: I have a minimum fee of $50. If your total word count, at the rate of your choice, comes to less than $50, you will be charged $50.
