My goal as an editor is to help your manuscript look its best for your intended audience while preserving your voice and style.
Many independent authors choose the additional work and expense of self-publishing because they want to retain control over their work. As an editor who specializes in editing services for self-publishers, I am here to serve as your advisor, not a dictator of what your book should be.
I have always been passionate about language and have studied the rules long enough to know which aspects of grammar are black and white, which are flexible, and which can be bent or broken for the sake of style.
I will listen to and address your concerns as well as point out potential pitfalls and suggest routes around them. But in the end, it is your book and always your decision which changes to implement.
I charge by the word so you will know the final price of the project before the edit begins. My rates are inline with the Editorial Freelance Association’s rate chart, and I offer a variety of editing options to fit a variety of budgets.
I bring a genuine passion and enthusiasm for every project. There are few things I enjoy more than creative collaboration and the opportunity to work with authors on manuscripts they’ve put so much of themselves into.
