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, and syllabi 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.


I highly encourage indie authors, e-book writers, and first-time novelists to get in touch!


Transcribing


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

No limitations on subject matter or number of speakers. Digital recordings only.

Rates available upon request. 48-hour expedited turnaround time available for an extra fee.
