Editor, Proofreader, Publishing Consultant, Web Developer

United States - Tests: 7

I'm an editor, writing instructor, publishing consultant and author with 30+ years of experience in the industry. I have held Senior Editor and Managing Editor jobs with print and digital publishers, and I was a bylined editorial staff member to the late Irving Wallace, one of the top-selling authors of modern times. I offer high-quality editing and proofreading services to authors and publishers. Self-publishing authors are welcome. I guarantee my work, and I've never had an unhappy client. For manuscripts over 10,000 words, I charge $.01 a word for proofreading, $.02 for copy editing, $.03 for line editing. I offer discounts for well-written copy and books over 80,000 words. Please request a quote for shorter manuscripts and projects requiring heavy rewriting. I also offer publishing support services: e-book and print formatting, cover design, ISBN and bar code allocation, and copyright filing. As a writing coach, I can help you with grammar and style, guide you on a project, or assist you in developing your own unique voice. We can explore the pros and cons of self-publishing versus traditional publishing and why/when you should seek an agent. My coaching fee is a very reasonable $45 an hour. I offer a "pre-review" service with a detailed critique of the first chapter of your book. I will perform intensive editing of selected passages and give you examples of how you can improve your work in progress. A pre-review will help ensure that you are on the right track before you invest your time and effort writing an entire book. I charge a flat $75 for this service. I began my editing career as a writer. I published my first article at age 14, and since then, I have published 12 nonfiction books, two novels under pseudonyms, 500+ bylined articles, and two dozen e-courses on writing, grammar and Web programming. My latest book is "Discover the Power to Change Your Life," available on Kindle and in paperback Feel free to contact me if you need an editor or proofreader, or if I can help with your projects in other ways. Have an awesome day!
