My focus is on providing self-publishing authors with affordable editing. I love working on genre fiction: fantasy, dystopian, paranormal, science fiction, romance, thriller, and mystery.
As the terms "copy editing" and "proofreading" mean different things to different people, I've tried to describe exactly what I offer. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your work has already been edited and you just need someone to catch the obvious errors a reader would notice--ones missed during editing or introduced after--proofreading is what you need.
Duplicate words (e.g., the the)
Homophones (e.g., two, to, too)
Missing letters and words
Rate: $0.004/word (i.e., $40/10,000 words)*
If you're confident in your plot and characters, but would like some help with grammar, syntax, and punctuation, copy editing is right for you.
Copy Editing addresses:
Everything included in proofreading
Sentences with structural problems
Obvious inconsistencies in the plot (I will not specifically be looking for plot holes)
If you'd like to get a sense of my editing style, I offer a free sample edit. Please email me the first chapter of your story (or the entire story if you'd like), and I'll edit a few pages so you can make an informed decision.
*A $20 minimum charge applies to each project. Rates and options will be discussed and agreed upon before any work begins. I reserve the right to decline work for any reason.
