Professional Editing &
I am a top rated copy editor and proofreader who has worked on more than 140 books. I can professionally edit your manuscript in an encouraging way so you feel confident sharing it with the world.
If you are looking for someone to tear apart your book or other writing, I'm not the editor for you. I will help you improve your writing, but in a friendly, encouraging way that preserves your style and voice.
I specialize in editing Christian books (fiction and nonfiction), but I have experience working on a variety of genres. Past jobs have included YA fiction, business nonfiction, memoirs, children's books, and self-help books. I have helped many self-published authors and work with custom/hybrid publishing companies.
I usually recommend two rounds of editing on a a book, a copy edit and a final proofread.
Prices are based on word count and services requested.
There are different levels of editing, but here is what I provide.
Light content edit- I can read your book and give notes on ideas you may want to expand on or cut out. I can point out any gaps or inconsistencies as well. If I think content could be rearranged, I can also note that. This is not an in-depth developmental edit.
Copy/line edit- I can edit your book for flow, word choice, spelling, punctuation, and grammar. I will also be on the lookout for inconsistencies and anything that needs to be clarified. I can also do a basic fact check and help create citations.
Proofread- I can edit your book or other text by only fixing errors such as spelling, punctuation, grammar, and formatting problems.
I can work in Word or Google Docs, and I am happy to use Track Changes or Suggestion Mode so you can see my work.
