You have a story to tell the world, and I want to help you get it out there. Let’s work together!

Fiction Editing

Do you have a short story or flash fiction piece that needs a second pair of eyes, maybe a little nudge in the right direction, perhaps some help with grammar and punctuation? That’s cool—we all do! I’m here to help you get your story in tip-top shape so you can feel more confident about submitting it for publication.

Proofreading

Need a second pair of eyes? I can proofread any type of written content (fiction, nonfiction, blog posts, marketing copy, flyers/brochures, newsletters, business plans, etc.) to find and fix any issues relating to:

  • Spelling
  • Punctuation
  • Grammar and usage
  • Consistency
  • Readability
  • Basic formatting

If your document has links, I will make sure they are correct as well. I will return your Word file ASAP (clean document or with Microsoft Word Track Changes – your choice). If your file is a print-ready PDF, I will use comments/sticky notes. My affordable rate will depend on the size and type of document. Please contact me with your project details for an official quote.

Copy Editing

My copy editing service includes finding and fixing all of the above plus:

  • Rewriting as needed for clarity, structure, and flow
  • Fact-checking, if applicable
  • Making the document consistent with a preferred style guide (such as AP or Chicago Manual of Style), if applicable
  • Nonfiction: feedback and suggestions regarding voice, style, story, purpose, and/or target audience
  • Fiction: feedback and suggestions regarding plot, characters, and other important elements of your story

I will return your Word file ASAP (clean document or with Microsoft Word Track Changes – your choice). My affordable rate will depend on the size and type of document. Please contact me with your project details for an official quote.

Book Layout/Formatting

Authors, I can format your books for print and/or ebook publication. I will configure your Word file to give your book a professional look based on your preferences. You will have a formatted file you can upload to Amazon or any other distributor/printer. Formatting can be bundled with editing or proofreading for a discount, so please contact me with details for a quote.
