Copyediting + Proofreading
for your BOOK And content marketing

Here’s How I Can Help...


 

I don’t make deep cuts in your work, such as reordering words or sentences; that's the work of a content editor/line editor.

I’m the person who puts the finishing touch on your writing so mistakes don’t distract from your message. Before you send your work to a designer, submit it for publication, or press the Publish button, hire me to spot and fix:

  • typos

  • autocorrect that’s incorrect

  • spelling and grammatical errors

  • capitalization and punctuation errors

  • formatting inconsistencies (hyphens, numbers, styles, etc.)

And also:

  • fact-check names and verify quotations

  • highlight sentences and flag areas that need clarification

  • standardize your document’s formatting, and

  • do any structural cleanup needed to prepare your work for its next step.

This is not a simple spellcheck but a thorough scrub, buff, and polish of your article, sales page, email series, or manuscript. While I can’t promise the result will be absolutely perfect, I can tell you it will be darned close.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • For projects over 1,000 words: Your project price will be calculated using your exact pre-edit word count.

  • Projects over 10,000 words receive a $60 discount.

  • Prices are based on your projects total word count. So, if you send me five 1,000-word blog posts, the price would be $360 for 5,000 words, not five posts at $120 each (totaling $600). If you have questions about this, send me a note.
