Stylistic/line editing: I’ll go line by line, removing repetition and jargon, clarifying your meaning, keeping an eye on paragraph and sentence structure, making suggestions about dialogue and character motivation/plot as appropriate, and making sure your prose flows, all while preserving your voice. Starting at $0.01 per word.

Copyediting: The nitty-gritty–I’ll edit for mechanics of style, grammar, punctuation, spelling, word usage, and internal consistency (so no one’s eyes go from blue to green). Starting at $0.006 per word.

Proofreading: This is a final read before you go to publish, checking that your manuscript is error free and ready to meet the public. Starting at $0.004/word.

Audiobook proofing: With seven years’ experience as a volunteer audiobook narrator and technician at the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and an avid audiobook fan, I will lend you an ear to make sure you have a clean final file. By reading your final manuscript text while carefully reviewing your audio file with high-performance headphones, I will identify vocal issues (popping Ps, fizzing Fs, overly sibilant Ss), extraneous noises (thunks, swallows, mic echoes),  mispronunciations, inconsistencies in name pronunciation, and misreadings (missed or added words, wrong emphasis or line readings). $17/hour.
