  • What genres do you work with?
    I am currently accepting manuscripts in the following genres: YA, science fiction, fantasy, closed-door and low spice historical or contemporary romance, cozy mystery, detective fiction, and more. If you don't see your genre listed here, reach out to see if we might be a good fit!
  • Who do you work with, and who do you not work with?
    I work with authors who are committed to a professional and high quality approach to book publishing. I work best with authors who are open to receiving feedback and who are seeking a partner or team member to support them on their publishing journey. I especially enjoy working with first-time authors and helping them navigate the industry (it can be a bit wild out there!). That said, if you are not open to change, have difficulty giving up control of your book, or are looking for a quick service for cheap, we won’t be a good fit.
  • What editorial services do you offer?
    In a nutshell, the Custom Manuscript Masterplan (a manuscript review), line- and copyediting, and proofreading.
  • What is your turnaround time? Do you offer rush services?
    Turnaround time will depend on the length and complexity of the manuscript and the changes that are needed. I do not offer rush services at this time.
  • How do I book editorial services?
    The best way to get started is through the contact form.
  • Do you require a fee to book services?
    In general, I ask authors to pay 50% of the service total up front to secure time on my calendar with the remaining 50% of the total invoiced upon completion of editorial services.
  • Do you require a contract or service agreement to book services?
    Yes. Both author and editor will sign an industry standard service agreement that defines the scope of work and the total cost, as well as providing protection of the author's intellectual property and the editor's business.
  • How much do you charge? Or, what are your rates?
    Every manuscript is different, and the total cost will depend on the services booked, the turnaround time, and the complexity and length (word count) of the manuscript. Starting rates are included on the Services page.
  • Do you offer payment plans?
    I do! A payment plan allows me to work on a project over the course of an agreed-upon number of months. A predetermined percentage of the total project cost is invoiced each month until full payment is complete.
  • How do you take payments?
    Payments are invoiced and made through HoneyBook, which accepts credit/debit cards and bank transfers.
  • Can you guarantee my book will be free from error?
    While I work hard to provide clients with high quality editing and proofreading services, no editor, including myself, can guarantee that a manuscript will be 100% free of error.
