Editorial Services

I offer a few content and grammar editing services to help prepare your manuscript for whatever publication path you intend to pursue. My services should be the last few editorial steps you take before pursuing publication. I don’t provide beta reading, manuscript evaluations, developmental editing, or writing coaching, so if your initial sample indicates you may need more than I can offer, I’ll happily refer you to other quality professionals.

Prices are typically based per page of 250 words so you know exactly how much your edit will cost before you sign a contract. So that you can be confident I’m the right editor for you, I provide free sample copy and line edits of up to 750 words. Longer paid samples can be provided upon request. Book my editorial services à la carte or as a package. Contact me for a quote!

Edit-ready manuscripts should be submitted as a Microsoft Word file in Times New Roman, twelve-point font, double-spaced, with one-inch margins unless a different format is approved by the editor.

Note: If you’re in need of editorial services and you’re on a deadline, it’s always a good idea to book early! My editorial calendar is often filled up at least a few months in advance.

Copy editing is my most popular and most versatile service. Manuscripts or shorter content that has been through extensive developmental review, beta reading, and self-editing can often start here. Learn more . . .

Proofreading is the final editorial stage your work goes through before publication. For books, this usually means the manuscript is laid out for print in PDF form. For shorter works or online content, this may mean you need a final eye before clicking Publish. Learn more . . .

Line editing evaluates your manuscript and your writing from a bird’s-eye view, focusing on the craft. Your project should have already gone through a few rounds of developmental editing or beta reading by the time it gets to this stage. Learn more . . .

Query reviews are designed for authors who have a complete and polished manuscript and want to pursue traditional publishing but need help preparing their query letter or synopsis. A query letter is usually 250 to 300 words and contains a hook to make the agent want to read the synopsis and any pages they might require. A synopsis is a one-to-three page summary of your novel from start to finish. No mystery, no to be continued, just your entire book laid out to help the agent know exactly what it's about.
