Do you need an experienced copy editor on your team? A line editor who can restructure sentences like a pro? How about a proofreader that can spot and correct errors?
You’ve worked hard on your book. Invested your time. Made it the best it can be.
You’ve already gone through several rounds of editing yourself — developmental and content edits, where you’ve dug deep and looked at structure, character development, and scene pacing.
By this point, you’ve read your manuscript so many times, it’s likely you’re missing small errors. Like punctuation, missing words, or redundancies.
That’s where I come in.
My name is Chris, and I’m a professional proofreader and copy editor who offers an amazing customer service experience for my clients. I catch distracting punctuation and grammatical errors and provide final copy edits. I’m a pro at tweaking already great writing into sentences that flow easily, and have your readers losing themselves in your story (not fumbling over misspelled words and cumbersome sentences).
I take great pride in providing a quality service for independent authors. I also believe that communication is key to a great working relationship.
I love to read — especially books in the romance genre! I edit for several indie romance writers on a regular basis, in numerous sub-genres.
I have a bachelor’s degree in biology and a master’s degree in health services administration. I’m an educator in my day job role, so I’m experienced with providing patient, kind and actionable advice.
I’m an experienced freelance writer, too. I wrote regularly for New York Times bestselling author Chris Guillebeau. I wrote the scripts Chris read on his podcast “Side Hustle School”. You can check out one of the scripts I wrote for Chris here. I’ve also done some freelance writing in the health and wellness niche.
I’ve also created content and completed reviews of medical educational content for MPS Limited.
I give 110% to all my projects. And I crush deadlines.
My rate is $0.006/word, with a $50 minimum per project. I do my invoicing via Venmo or Paypal. I also offer all new clients a sample proofread/copy edit on the first 1000 words, so you can get a feel for my work and whether we’re a good fit.
Typically I use MS Word Track Changes function and Comments to edit within the document. I also have experience with using Google Docs, if that’s your preference. Ultimately you accept or reject my suggestions as you see fit; you are the author and the final say is, of course, yours.
