If you're looking for an editor for your novel or manuscript...I edit fiction (all subgenres of romance, erotica, young adult, new adult and women's fiction) and non-fiction (guide books, mostly). I approach every manuscript with an open mind, a lot of respect, and a little humour. (If you've ever tried to finish writing a book before, you'll know that humour is required).
I hold a BA (Hons) in English Language and Literature. Back in early 2011, I was in the first batch of interns at Entangled Publishing, where I went on to pass their editing test. Then I moved to Etopia Press to become an acquisitions editor. Eventually, I became a managing editor, and made the decision to go freelance when it made sense for my writing/editing life balance. It's still making sense, which makes me a lucky girl indeed.
I'm a very capable copy editor (US and UK English) and an insightful, meticulous content editor. Clients tend to come back to me because I respect their voices and add value. I work with authors who want to self-publish and authors who want to polish their manuscripts for traditional publishing; I've been on both sides, so I have an informed vantage point within the industry.
RatesI charge $0.006 per word for a full content and copy edit, or $0.005 per word if you'd prefer just a copy edit (which includes line editing. They go hand in hand, in my opinion). All payments go through PayPal with 50% upfront.
Each edit includes as many "passes" of the manuscript as the author requests (and while every manuscript is different, this averages out at around three passes). Between passes, I always make myself available via email if the author wants to bounce around ideas. I like to see the MS one last time to proofread if there's room on the schedule. When the author is happy, I'm happy. At this point, GIFs are sometimes exchanged.
