For over a decade, I’ve made a living in book publishing: first as a personal research assistant, then as an in-house book publicist, and finally as a freelance author, editor, and coach. Editing is my love language. Even if no one paid me for it, I’d be editing personal e-mails, medical in-take forms, my family’s grammar – you get the idea. If you’re looking for an eagle eye on words that matter, consider me your bird.
Project Format/Fee: My rates for the following projects start at $75 an hour and include two free hours of e-mail or phone coaching on the project being reviewed:
- Copy Editing + Coaching: includes checking any written material for grammar, spelling, syntax, and punctuation issues.
- Developmental Editing + Coaching: includes checking any non-fiction written material for thematic, narrative, sequential, and flow issues.
- Book Proposal Consult + Coaching: includes reviewing non-fiction book proposals to strengthen author’s voice, vision, platform, and market research.
- Book Publicity Consult + Coaching: includes developing a month-by-month publicity calendar, outreach strategy, and press kit.
Hourly rates are discounted 50% for friends and family. Bartering offers welcome.
