I wonder if Victor Hugo had an editor. He might not have needed one. You probably do though.
I offer general-purpose editing services. Although I am open to writing projects of any type, I specialize in certain areas. See below for more details.
Details about pricing are here
. I do not work by the word or page, but charge a flat rate for each project. Send me something and I can review it and let you know what I can do for you, and give you a quote and timeline. Every book is different, and I get them at all stages. Sometimes finalizing them is rather straightforward and sometimes not.
Examples of some books and dissertations I've done.
Complete editing of novels of any length or type, fine literature, genre works, or your own unique masterpiece. Developmental editing, line editing and copyediting/proofreading. Everything from checking the flow and continuity to the spelling, grammar and punctuation. Looking at it with a second set of eyes, judging plot and character arcs, themes, tense, voice, all those things. Whatever you need to move ahead with it.
Academic and Non-Fiction
. Doctoral dissertations and master's theses. Coaching, editing, and formatting. Can help with proposals, literature reviews, methodologies, managing the cites and references, presenting tables and figures, finalizing everything for submission. I know APA and Chicago styles very well. See the academic page
. Organization, development, copyediting, formatting, and preparation for publication.
Preparation for Self-Publishing
I can help you create print-on-demand books and ebooks from a completed text. Generally using Amazon, CreateSpace for p.o.d. and Kindle for ebooks. I can do your final proofing and shepherd you through the process. I know Amazon's procedures fairly well. It's not that difficult, once your text is perfect
, just a lot of details to address and finalize. (It's the writing that's hard.)
