Are you writing a book or short story? Nothing takes a reader out of a story like typos and inconsistencies and it is so hard to catch those things in our own work. Not sure about commas or apostrophes? You've come to the right place.
I help authors make their projects the best they can be by eliminating typos, fixing spelling and grammar errors, and checking for consistency and clarity in order to ensure a good experience for readers.
I proofread and copy edit fiction and nonfiction works. Fiction genres include mystery, suspense, thriller, fantasy, science fiction, crime, horror, speculative fiction, literary fiction, paranormal, and romance. Nonfiction specialties are memoir, biography, education, parenting, family, popular culture, and crafts.
For non-American or non-native English speakers writing for an American audience, I can help fix awkward phrasing as well as find and correct non-American words, phrases, and spelling.
My goal is to preserve the author's voice wherever possible. I make straightforward changes and make comments with questions or suggestions for less obvious situations. I provide a copy of the document with all changes tracked.
My standard references are The Chicago Manual of Style and Webster's Dictionary. I can also work with your style guide or personal preferences.
Pricing: $10 per 1000 words.
