Editing and Proofreading
for Self-Help and Business Authors
New for fall 2021: Developmental and Line Editing are now on the menu! More information about these services is forthcoming. In the meantime, below you will find more information about copyediting and proofreading.
Are you wondering what copyediting and proofreading entail? Check out my handy chart below!
Remember, copyediting and proofreading are 2 distinct editorial passes. I do not provide copyediting and proofreading services in 1 edit. For more information, check out my rates below.
Many authors struggle to edit and proofread their own work. I get it—it’s hard to spot your own mistakes!
Maybe you don’t know how to edit and proofread.
Maybe you don’t have time.
Maybe you just don’t want to.
I can save you time and provide peace of mind. Outsource your editing and proofreading to me so that you can get back to focusing on doing the things that really move the needle in your business.
I strive to make your life easier with my services. One of my favorite parts about what I do is helping my clients to develop their own style guide. Don’t care about AP style or CMOS? No problem! Let’s refine your style so it suits you, then develop a guide to share with all of your collaborators. Future books are written more efficiently when everyone is on the same page with your house style guide!
