About This Gig

Let An Amazon Bestselling Editor Take Your Book To The Next Level!


PLEASE MESSAGE ME BEFORE ORDERING, ATTACHING YOUR MANUSCRIPT IN .DOC! 


As a professional editor and proofreader, I spend hours scrutinizing every detail of your text using the industry-standard guidelines of The Chicago Manual of Style and the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. 


This is my only gig, so I have the time to give each order the care it needs and deserves. 


I don't depend on unreliable software like Grammarly, and I show my work with Word’s Track Changes.


Plus, you can buy with confidence, as your satisfaction is guaranteed!


I check the following and apply a consistent style to your book:


  • Capitalization
  • Spelling 
  • Hyphenation
  • Abbreviations
  • Punctuation 
  • Numbers
  • Grammar
  • Syntax
  • Usage

I will also suggest changes to improve the following issues:

  • Clarity
  • Awkward sentence structure
  • Readability

(I don't do formatting.)

Your book is your baby, so I work hard to preserve your unique voice and style while ensuring your message is conveyed clearly to your audience.

I look forward to working with you. Contact me now!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How Does Your Gig Work?
    If you would like to work with me, please message me first, attaching your full manuscript in .doc or .docx. I will take a look at your manuscript and provide a price and time quote for your project. If you are happy with the quote, I will send you a custom offer that will schedule your slot.
  • Do You Have Time for My Order?
    I always have time to take on another order, but you may have to wait a bit. I schedule all my orders, giving each one ample time to be completed correctly, aiming for quality over quantity. Contact me now with your full manuscript, and I will let you know when I can have it ready.
  • Will You Sign an NDA?
    If you provide an NDA, I will sign it. However, out of the over 1,200 orders I have done, I have only signed two NDAs. I promise all of my customers that I will never divulge information about their book to a third party, even in a portfolio or sample.
  • Do You Do the Work Yourself?
    Yes. I do all of the work myself. I run two types of software on your book, and then I read every single word, looking for dropped or incorrect words, missing or extraneous punctuation, correct word choice, style issues, correct sentence structure etc. I spend approx. 5 hours per 10,000 words.
  • Do You Provide Formatting?
    I specialize in copyediting, and I suggest that you get a professional who specializes in book layout or formatting to do your formatting for you. There are lots of great formatters here on Fiverr, and I would be happy to give a recommendation.
  • What Types of Books Do You Take?
    I take any type of book of 5,000 words or more. I do not take on academic papers (snooze!). The best way to see if I am a good fit for your book is to contact me and ask me any questions you may have. I look forward to it!
  • What Services Do You Provide?
    The main service I provide is copy editing. I can also do proofreading, heavy editing (where I reword your sentences), and writing (book descriptions, books, web pages, etc.). If you'd like to discuss any project you have, please contact me, and I will let you know what I can do.
  • What Type of Editor Do I Need?
    If you are mostly happy with your book the way it is and you just need polishing before you publish, then I am your woman. If you are not the greatest writer or are not native, I may be able to help you there as well. If your works is very rough, I suggest a developmental editor first.
  • Do You Show Your Work/Use Track Changes?
    All of the changes I make to your manuscript will be done using Track Changes in Word. You will then be able to approve or deny them as you wish. I also use the Comment feature in Word to make comments on additional things you might consider.
  • What Is Your Editing Style?
    As a copyeditor, I feel that my job is mainly to leave your wording as is as much as possible. So I only change things if they are incorrect, vague, or awkward. I use a really light hand, so the final product is professionally polished, with your unique voice shining through.
