This is my specialty and what I love doing most: helping develop your writing into something that delights your readers, says what you mean to say, and surpasses your expectations for what you could accomplish. We’ll communicate thoroughly about your project so I can edit to your goals and preferences.
If your manuscript is essentially finished, I can copyedit for correctness, clarity, and effectiveness. I’ll ask whether you want a “light touch” or a “deep dive” (or somewhere in-between). Copyediting is not proofreading, which is an additional step after the book is in its final form.
If I’m writing while referencing your material (audio lecture, blogs, etc.), I call that a “creative edit.” (It’s like ghost writing but less creepy sounding.) Creative editing projects are very individual, and it’s important that you find someone who can “get inside your head” and speak in your voice. I only take creative editing projects if I think I’m that person for your project.
I charge $25/hour for most projects, and I quote a flat rate based on estimated hours of work. For reference, you can view the Editorial Freelance Association’s listed rates, here.
