Editing Services

You’ve done the hard work. Now that it’s done, you are dreading the next step. Editing.

Depending on the editing services that you need, I will work with you on your manuscript to make it shine.

Why You Need Editing?

As a writer, you need a second pair of eyes. Whether you’re writing a report, a short story, or a novel, you need to have a professional editor look at your work, review it, correct it and give you vital feedback.

The hardest part about writing is the editing process, which is why I offer editing services to help you, the writer, with your work. Editing can be grueling and it certainly is time-consuming.

I offer editing and proofreading services. Why? Let’s face it—despite your writing talents, editing your own work and pinpointing errors can be literally impossible.

I offer editing and proofreading services for writers of fiction, nonfiction, essayists and bloggers. If you need it edited, then I can help.

Editing Services

Editing delves into the organization of ideas, the structure, the arguments, the words you use—it’s an all-inclusive approach to the content of your book, paper, or blog.

As an English professor and professional content writer, I have years of experience with writing, editing and analyzing texts. My goal is to help you with all of your editing needs. I will edit your work, whether it’s a manuscript or an email.

I offer a number of services and prices that are affordable for everyone, from a student needing a paper edited, to a writer.

Freelance Book Editing Services

I offer freelance book editing services for authors and writers of all genres. With these services, I will dive headfirst into your work, trying to make sure that grammatically and structurally your work is in tip-top shape.

  • Fiction

There are a number of different editing services I offer, including:

  • Developmental Editing

  • Stylistic Editing

  • Manuscript Editing

  • Proofreading

Developmental Editing

With developmental editing, I will try to improve the content of your book based on its structure, characters and how the work pans out. This type of editing will offer you detailed suggestions, as well as revisions for progressing the plot, a character (or character’s) development, pacing, scenes, voice, dialogue and much more.

Developmental editing is different from proofreading and copy editing. I will not be paying attention to the nitty-gritty details of your grammar or punctuation or spelling, instead, I will be taking a look at your pacing, plot, characters and setting.

This is an in-depth form of editing that focuses on improving your overall story. I will work closely with the writer to ensure that we are both on the same page—literally.

Stylistic Editing

For stylistic editing, I will help you clarify the meaning, ensure coherence and refine the language of your book to make sure that every word counts. Your novel may be 60,000 words, but you want every word to mean something, to keep the reader interested, to keep the plot going and to lead the reader to the end of the story with a flourish.

Manuscript Editing Services

My manuscript editing services will help you develop your ideas, giving you great success with your book. A refined, well-edited book beats a unrefined, non-edited book any day. With my manuscript editing services, you will get everything you’re looking for at an affordable price.

With my editing services, you will receive line-by-line edits to improve clarity, all while ensuring to maintain your own unique voice in your work.

It’s a detailed analysis of your work, cutting away any inconsistency and repetition. It’s a detailed analysis of your work, cutting away any inconsistency and repetition. See what I did there?

This form of editing looks at your punctuation, grammar and spelling in accordance with a style guide, such as The Chicago Manual of Style or Associated Press depending on what style fits your work.

A copy edit will ensure technical perfection.

Line Editing Services

Line editing is exactly what it sounds like… editing each line for clarity, smoothness and wording. This form of editing will point out flaws and issues, as well as give you detailed suggestions on revision.

Proofreading Services

Proofreading is the final stage of the editing processes when you pay attention to small, grammatical errors, misspellings and punctuation mistakes. This process, though not as intensive, is the final process in writing.
