Services and Fees

Every project is given personalized attention that takes the author's goals and requirements into consideration, along with a document's length, scope, and deadline. As an editor, I represent the interests of both you and your future readers. I will ensure that your work is comprehensible and enjoyable.


I will help bring out the best in your work - no project is too large or too small.


Reviews of websites, resumes, business plans, book proposals, syllabi, and graduate school assignments are all available upon request.


I also specialize in providing affordable editing for wedding-related paper goods. Please check out The Proofread Bride for more information about how I can help you avoid wholly preventable errors prior to investing time and money into having your save-the-dates, wedding invitations, programs, menus, or day-of signage hand-written or professionally printed.

Nonfiction & Academic


I provide two levels of edits: 

Proofreading: 

Close reading for errors in grammar and format, with suggestions for improving brevity and clarity. 

Editing and critiquing: 

All of the above, plus recommendations regarding style and content. I will help make sure that all points build to support your overall argument or conclusion; identify examples and anecdotes that are irrelevant or uninteresting; perform basic fact-checking; and ensure that your text is clear and concise, with a focus (unless you request otherwise) on making sure it can be understood by a reasonably-educated layperson. 

Reduced rates for students and flat fees for book-length works are available.  

Fiction


I will help you flesh out characters, eliminate plot holes, improve narrative structure, and maintain a consistent voice.


E-books and indie authors are very welcome! 


Transcribing


Fully accurate and confidential transcription of interviews, notes, dictation, etc. 

I accept digital recordings only. No limitations on subject matter or number of speakers.

$150 per hour of recording. 48-hour expedited turnaround time available for an extra fee.
