About This Gig

Dear Author


You are at the final draft of your book and your next step is to find a suitable editor. This is not that simple because you might actually need three editors:

A developmental editor to evaluate the overall structure of the book, plot, characterization, pacing

A line editor to look into the creative content, style, imagery and tone of voice at the sentence and paragraph level

A copy editor to address the technical aspects of language: grammar, syntax, spelling, punctuation, word choice

These 3 functions may need different people to handle them and the cost could be prohibitive.

What if you could find a person with a unique blend of all 3 functions?
  • Natural flair for writing
  • Critical ability due to literary training and exposure
  • Linguistic ability due to language training and experience

I am happy to say that I possess all these abilities due to my natural talents, formal training and marketplace exposure.

What if I could offer you a special package rate to perform all 3 editing functions? I will go even further and offer you a preliminary edit of any 5 pages of your book FOC.

Do feel free to discuss your writing needs.

Best regards


Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does this mean that if I am not satisfied with your preliminary critique, I pay nothing?
    Yes, you are absolutely right. It's FOC. But if you are satisfied and wish to award me the job, then I will make you a custom offer and include that section in the total word count.
  • When you do the line or copy edit do you suggest improvements?
    Yes, I will rephrase sections that are not clear, lack flow or have grammar errors using track changes.
