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: 


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.  


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!


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

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

$1.65 per minute of recording. 48-hour expedited turnaround time available for an extra fee.
