Editing & Writing Services


Thank you for considering me as your editor!

As of September 2022, I’m only considering small projects such as query letters and synopses as I am fully booked with full-length manuscript edits until March 2023.  I tend to be booked out months in advance. If I’m unable to assist you due to timing, I highly recommend these editors.

Pricing is based on word count, shape, and status of manuscript. Each manuscript will receive a free sample edit with a personalized bid for services. I am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association, and their pricing schedule can be reviewed here. You can also hire me on Reedsy.

I have the best clients who have shared their experiences with me here: Testimonials
