Editing

Editing Services:

I’ve been writing and editing professionally/freelance since 2009, earning my B.A. in English because I’d thought I would be a teacher, but I ended up working in IT instead. Now I help teachers keep their tech running so they can teach future generations.

New clients should provide the first page of their manuscript (MS), single-spaced, along with the total word count of the MS. This is for me to demonstrate my skills and also to show me yours in regards to whether your MS needs a copy edit or a line edit. There is no charge for this first page edit. Consider it an interview of one another. With the first page edit, I will offer a quote to edit your MS.

Editing times run approximately 10-15 pages per hour, depending on the level of editing needed; therefore, my editing rates vary. Please contact me for an estimate.

I typically only do copy and line editing, as I work full time in IT helping the technologically challenged all day, so I usually don’t have time for content/developmental/substantial editing. However, I do make exceptions. Contact me for details.

Please note that I do use the Oxford comma, only one space after a period, and I edit using Track Changes. If you have specific guidelines, please let me know.

Editors I Work With:

I highly recommend Sharon Gerlach and CJ Obray for content editing. Also, Leona Bushman, who has edited for me at Just Ink Press, LLC.
