Woman Writing

Editing Services

I charge a flat rate of $.005 per word for each editorial service I offer. My hope is to be able to give authors, especially self-publishing and indie, a chance to have their books professionally edited at an affordable rate.

While I am able to edit purely contemporary fiction and non-fiction, my strengths lie in fantasy, sci-fi, and all applicable sub-genres. I am willing and able to edit for most age categories, though I'm most confident in Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult fiction. 

I am not a good fit for books in the genre of erotica, or stories that involve a heavy focus on suicide, self-harm, or eating disorders. I reserve the right to decline working on a manuscript for any reason.


Developmental Edits

These are my favorite edits to do! With a developmental edit, I'll dig deep into your book, making notes of what's working and what could use some tweaking. That means I look at the big picture - plot, worldbuilding, theme, character arcs, etc - and work with you to make every element the strongest it can be!


Line Edits

With a line edit, I go through your project line by line, analyzing word choice, sentence structure, dialogue strength, character voice, etc. to see where your prose is singing and where it can be strengthened.


Copy Edits

Now we're down to the nitty-gritty of editing! When I do a copy edit, I'll go through your manuscript with a fine-toothed comb, checking grammar, spelling, word choice, punctuation, etc. so you can be confident that your book is ready for publication!


Combination Packages

If you want to book two edits together (developmental + line, line + copy) please contact me and we'll discuss bundle pricing! I do prefer not to do developmental and copy edits at the same time, but I'm more than happy to combine developmental/line edits or line/copy edits into one session. If you want to book me for all three, e-mail me and I will do my absolute best to put together a budget-friendly package that works with your schedule!
