Years of experience with writers of varying  levels (beginner to published author)

Ask a question or inquire about a sample edit

  • I provide copyediting and developmental editing for authors of literary and genre fiction, poetry, and essays or memoirs. I will also consider research papers and other academic writing. Rate: $35 per hour

  • I offer a pre-editing review of manuscripts, which includes a reading of the manuscript and a 3-4 page summary of strengths, weaknesses, and recommendations. Rate: $35 per hour

  • Note: All manuscripts for editing must be submitted in Word doc or docx, Times New Roman font size 12, and must be double spaced. Hard copy, also double spaced and in Times New Roman, is the preferred format for pre-editing reviews, although I will consider electronic submission. I am happy to answer any questions about formatting,  submission, and payment options. I will send instructions before accepting your submission.

  • A minimum fee of $15.00 will be charged for any single job less than or equal to 30 minutes. 

  • PayPal charges my account a percentage of each payment; therefore, if you choose to pay via PayPal, there is a small additional fee to cover that loss [2.9% of fee + $0.30 USD for transactions under $3,000].

  • I gladly accept personal checks.

  • References provided upon request. (Also see testimonials.)
