Freelance Editor to the Indie Author Masses

What I Can Do For You 

 

PROOFREADING:  I will read through your book, correct typos, spelling, punctuation and word usage errors.  I will do it, but I prefer NOT to do straight proofreads, because it's too hard to see a mistake and think "that's not my job, I am proofing - not editing!" and then just leave it there. 

 

COPYEDITING:  I will edit for sentence structure, story consistency, grammar/syntax, and basic interior formatting, and also proofread. 

 

EDITING: I will review/edit text for substantive edits, content, continuity, and cohesiveness, polishing your book to as near perfection as we can get it.  I will discuss with you storylines that need closing, threads that are left hanging, plot points that need clarification, etc.  Whatever changes I do make, I take pains to keep YOUR voice, and not insert my own.  Any changes to a character's dialogue will be made in the character's voice/speaking style.  I will not ever make any major changes without discussing with you first, and will never change events or storylines.

 

I know you're thinking 'yeah, yeah, yeah, but how much does it cost?'  That's the good news.  Most editors charge a high per word or per page rate, which can run into thousands of dollars, depending on the size of your book.  I do not.  I charge a per project rate, that takes into account word count, length of book, amount of work, and level of editing, among other things.  This can range from $250 to $1,500, depending on the amount of work needed from me. 

 

This low rate is offered because I believe that many indie authors can be successful, and they just need a little help.  I keep my services affordable so that indie authors may make good use of what I can provide.

 

That said, I DO give discounts not only to repeat clients, but also to referrals from previous clients.  Contact me for an estimated price.
