A rush fee is available depending on the length of the manuscript, when the client needs editing complete by, and my availability. If you’re looking to have your manuscript editing a little faster, I’d be happy to give you a quote.


Novel Proofreading

If you’ve been through the editing process already and are looking to have your manuscript proofread to ensure that it is error-free and ready to publish, I can help you with that as well.

Proofreading for children’s picture books up to 1,200 words is $50.

Copy Editing for Other Types of Written Content

In addition to children’s books and novels, I also edit other types of written content. These include but are not limited to blog posts, articles, newsletters, brochures/fliers, and academic essays. The rate for each of these is $35 for up to four pages. After four pages, the rate is $50.

What I Do Not Offer

I do not offer rewriting, co-writing, ghostwriting, fact-checking, researching, or marketing services.

While I do not offer rewriting services, I do offer suggestions on how to rewrite sentences or sections of text to improve the flow and clarity of the story for children’s picture books (this is the developmental editing). I don’t make these changes myself because I want the author to have the final say in their work and be 100% satisfied with it. I’m here to help and support authors while they do this, not to take over.

I do not answer questions about publishing, formatting, or marketing. These are not my areas of expertise, and therefore, I cannot confidently answer questions about them. I do, however, have colleagues that I can refer authors to that can properly help with the publishing process, whether it be traditional publishing or self-publishing.

If you have any other questions that may not have been discussed on this page, feel free to send me an email and I’d be happy to discuss your project with you and answer any questions you have. 🙂
