What I Offer
Features and Benefits
Very few people have the resources to waste on a shot in the dark. I never make a purchase without being reasonably confident it is the right one to make, and I don’t expect you to do so either. For that reason, I offer a free sample edit of up to 1500 words. For a nominal fee, you may increase the sample size to a maximum of 3000 words.
With every project, I provide a comprehensive style sheet documenting notable spelling, grammar, punctuation, and stylistic choices. It is editable, which means you can continue to update and share it, maintaining consistency at every stage of your manuscript’s development regardless of who is working on it at the time.
Your manuscript’s content is yours alone, and you will always have the final say over what changes and what doesn’t. All edits, comments, and suggestions are made using the track changes feature of Microsoft Word, and you are the only one who decides whether to accept or reject every single one!
From proposal to contract to completion, successful teams communicate well, and that is my commitment to every client! When questions arise, I won’t make assumptions; I’ll communicate them to you. If you have questions about comments or suggested edits, I will be ready to provide the clarity you need!

Get a Quote!
Quotes are individualized based on the services being requested, the parameters of the project (such as timeline, special requests, or add-on services), and the size of the document or manuscript (in manuscript pages) and its quality, as determined by a free sample edit of up to 1500 words, which will be returned to you along with a proposal and rate quote for the project.
Once an agreement is reached, half is due up front and the other half upon completion.
