Description

I am a full-time proofreader and editor with 30 years of experience in developing prose,

polishing text and catching mistakes. I am here to help you get the most out of your writing.

I'm fast, friendly and professional, and experienced working across all genres of fiction and non-fiction, plus academic, technical and commercial writing. 

All editing (copy-editing and line-editing) is done electronically in MS Word using the 'Track Changes' feature, which allows authors to accept, modify, or reject all my suggested edits. If necessary, I clarify the suggested edits using 'Comment Boxes.'

The reference books I work with are The Chicago Manual of Style and, to a lesser extent, the Associated Press Style Book. I don't stray far from their grammar and punctuation views. I only resort to other reference books when The Chicago Manual of Style doesn't address my question. At The Chicago Manual of Style's suggestion, I use the Merriam-Webster Dictionary when I need to look up spellings, hyphenations, and definitions.

My rates are as follows:

  • Proofreading: $0.005/word (for example: $50/10,000 words).
  • Copy Editing: $0.006/word (for example: $60/10,000 words)
  • Line Editing: $0.008/word (for example: $80/10,000 words)


For new clients seeking editing work on novels, I will provide a sample edit of  approximately 1,000 - 1,500 words on request, free of charge.

NOTE: All Proofreading/Editing is carried out remotely.

For more details, please check My Website or feel free to drop me a line. I would love to get involved with your writing project, be it great or small, epic or intimate, and I am currently accepting new bookings.
