Services and Costs

I provide a variety of editing services. Please contact me so we can discuss your best option.

Developmental Editing

Developmental editing is the process of helping you plan, structure, and develop your manuscript. It can be done in the early stages of writing or after you have written a substantial amount but need help organizing, cutting down, or fleshing out the manuscript.
Copy editing is a separate project and is not included in developmental editing.

Copy Editing

Copy editing involves the standard correction of errors in grammar, spelling, syntax, and punctuation, but it goes much deeper than that.

A primary focus of copy editing is checking for the “five C’s”: comprehension, clarity, concision, cohesion, and coherence. All of these items and more are addressed and corrected as needed during the editing process.

 

I work only in American English and use the Chicago Manual of Style unless otherwise requested.

Please note that while basic proofreading is inherently a part of copy editing, final proofreading is a separate project and is not included in copy editing.

Rush Projects

I can sometimes accept rush projects. A rush fee of 50 percent is added to the estimate. A minimum of 75 percent of the estimate is due on my acceptance of a rush project. Subject to availability.
Payment is accepted via Venmo or Zelle.
