In addition to my fiction writing, I also offer professional writing, proofreading, and copy editing services.

Proofreading and Copy Editing

As with all editing, the more complicated and in-depth your work, the more important it is for me to be familiar with the subject matter. My favorite jobs include supernatural or speculative fiction, but I am willing to take on projects related to any of the following.

  • Short stories, novels, and books for any age
  • Newsletters, brochures, etc. for any subject matter
  • Nonfiction books or articles about animals, nature, dance and other performing arts, writing, business/management, or roller derby (Yes, I know it’s an odd list.)

My fee for proofreading and copy editing ranges from 3¢ to 9¢ per word, depending on the complexity of the project. For very short projects (1,500 words or less), I will accept payment upon completion. For longer projects, I will require partial payment up front.
