I have been editing professionally for almost fifteen years. I've taught writing for ten years and have a master of fine arts in creative writing from the University of New Orleans. If you are a writer looking to submit a polished manuscript to an editor or agent, or for self-publishing, consider hiring a freelance editor to help you prepare.
My rates are reasonable: $0.006 per word for the first read, $0.004 per word for a second read of the same manuscript, after revisions. I do line-by-line edits and revision suggestions in addition to an at least one-page critique. I edit all genre fiction, including science fiction, horror, and romance. Partial payment is due before the first edit, payable via Paypal, and the balance due at the end. You have the protection of a contract as well!
Contact me if you are interested in learning more and for a free, three-page sample edit.
Resources for Writers
|Excellent place to find critique partners. Works on a credit system, the more you critique, the more you can have critiqued. I've had nothing but helpful feedback from the other users at this site.|
