Why Edit?

Let me help you create a product that allows readers to enjoy or learn from your writing without "distractions."

​Distractions can take many forms including errors in grammar or word choice, awkward sentences, poor formatting, inconsistencies, plot holes, etc.

​These things make your work difficult to read, causing frustration to your readers because the words don't flow smoothly.

​Understandably, it's hard for authors to catch all of the problems in their own work. Somehow your brain tends to fill in missing words and clarify thoughts because it already knows what you want on the page.

Getting Started

I deal only with family-friendly writing without horror, erotica, graphic violence, or the occult.

There are several different levels of editing so I will work with you to fit your budget. I believe that some editing is always better than no editing!

Take the first step and request a free writing analysis and project estimate.

I would be happy to look at a chapter of your writing and let you know how I can help. Contact me.


Writing projects are priced according to difficulty and may be paid by the piece or hourly. I charge an average of $.035 per word and from $25 to $50 per hour.

Please contact me to discuss your needs or send writing samples.

Payment Policy
I require 30-50% down payment (estimated), with the rest due upon completion of your project.
When you are ready to make a payment, let me know and I will send PayPal info. 

Levels of Editing / Proofreading

Development editing looks at the big picture, reviewing content, structure, and flow.

Content or Line editing looks at the mechanics of the text, checks grammar, fixes sentence structure, and reviews word choice. This may also include fact-checking if desired.

Proofreading is the last stage in the writing cycle when authors are generally satisfied with what they've written. This includes checking for typos and other errors before publication. It generally doesn't include re-writing.
