Indie Novel Copy Editing and Proofing
It’s all in the details…
Let your work be judged on its merits – your own creativity, style and imagination. Too many independently published novels just don't get enough attention in the proofing and editing department, and it makes them seem less polished and professional than novels produced by major publishers.
Qualifications and Experience
Writer and editor since 2009, experienced journalist, content writer and reviewer.
If you're looking for a friendly, caring editor, give me a try. I want you to succeed!

Fees and Payment
Proofreading: .50¢ per page (maximum 325 words).
Copy Editing: $1 per page (maximum 325 words).
Payment is through PayPal. You don't need an account, and PayPal accepts credit and debit cards for payment.
For a typical novel of 60,000 to 80,000 words, delivery time is four to six weeks after acceptance.
Editing doesn't mean re-writing. Suggestions will be made for clarity, sentence structure, and consistency, but not for plot and character development.
Editing of the first 1,000 words is free. This will give you a chance to observe my editing style and decide if it's right for you.
It's strongly recommended that you proofread and edit your own work as much as possible before sending it to be copy edited. This will give you the most for your money!
