- Proofreading- $3/page
I will check grammar, spelling, punctuation, capitalization, verb tense, pronouns, spacing, and formatting consistency. This service doesn't include making any radical changes to your work, just a thorough examination to correct basic typographical errors. Proofreading is included with all other services.
- Copy Editing- $5/page
In addition to standard proofreading, I will adjust sentence and paragraph structure, eliminate redundant words, replace repetitive words with synonyms, and substitute weak words, phrases, and sentences with powerful alternatives. You can expect noticeable change to your original document and should be prepared to review the changes to ensure you are happy with them.

- Developmental Editing- $12/page
This is my most comprehensive service. I will work with you through every stage of a project, from concept to final draft, to help you get the most from your writing. Please note that this is not a ghost writing service. I won't write the piece for you, but I will provide editorial and consultative services throughout the process.

I will read your manuscript and provide a summary which you can use for promotional purposes, such as on the back of a novel or on an Amazon listing. This requires a thorough reading of your work. Please schedule accordingly.
