If you’re reading this page, you’re likely looking for editing and/or proofreading for a book you’ve written and want to see what that involves and what it might cost. Congratulations on being at the point in your writing journey where you’re ready for an editor!

I’m glad you’ve considered working with me and that you’re interested in my services and pricing. Everything is detailed below, and if you have any other questions, I’d be happy to answer them.

I look forward to working alongside you as you work towards your writing goals. 🙂

A $50 deposit is required for all manuscripts of 100 pages or more. This deposit is non-refundable and is to be paid before editing is started.

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.


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. 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 contacts that I can refer authors to that can properly help with the publishing process, whether it be traditional publishing or self-publishing. They provide services such as illustrations, formatting, book designing, cover designing, and more.

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. 🙂
