My goal is to help you present your writing in its most polished form. I will edit for spelling, punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, and plot holes. At this time I am not accepting ms that include vampires, witches, dragons, fantasy, paranormal, magical powers, or excessive violence, except for previous customers.
- I am interested in helping independent, self-publishing writers who feel they cannot afford editing.
- I am charging .003 per word for proofreading and .005 for copyediting.
To sample my work at no charge, please send at least 1000 words and I will return your document with my comments and recommendations. I use the Track Changes editing program on Word. Please tell me a little bit about yourself and your ms. What genre(s) and target audiences do you have in mind?
My experience includes freelance editing of books and short stories, the editing of hundreds of papers for classmates in grad school, as well as the writing and editing of a master's thesis. I also worked as editor of a small monthly newsletter for several years.
Resources used: Chicago Manual of Style, Sixteenth Edition and Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition.
