Are you looking to have your short story or novel professionally edited? I am opening up limited slots at prices that can’t be beat for both content editing (get input on characters/plot/other story mechanics, plus feedback on any specific questions you might have) and copyediting (grammar and style). I am open to different genres, though I am most fond of speculative fiction and historical fiction. I am, however, not overly keen on novels that focus solely on romance and sacrifice plot.
Prices for my introductory month, ending April 30, will be $16 per hour for copyediting and $19 per hour for content editing. This is well below the average for these services as listed in both the “2015 Writer’s Market” and on the Editorial Freelancers Association’s website.
Services will be paid through PayPal, and I will require a partial upfront payment, which will be determined by the project (whether it is a short story or novel, or if it will be copyedited or content edited); the remainder will then be invoiced and due after services have been rendered. To learn more about these services, utilize the form below to start the conversation; we will then work out the fine details via email. Initially, I ask that you include information about your project — summary, genre, word count, and target audience — and what you are looking for.
If you have ever wanted to have your work professionally edited, don’t miss out on this opportunity; you will not find lower prices, so take advantage of them!
I am a 2009 graduate of Purdue University, where I majored in professional writing. Currently, I am employed by The Papers Inc. Through this company, I serve as a staff writer, copy editor and editor. I started as the copy editor of “The Municipal” magazine approximately three years ago before moving on to also copyediting “Home Indoor Outdoor Living,” prior to it moving out of office, and several of the company’s other publications. A year ago I was named as the editor of “Michiana House and Home.” I’m very familiar with both AP Style and the Chicago Manual of Style. In the past, I have also edited others’ short stories and novels/excerpts.
