Services for Authors

I provide detailed, line by line copy editing of novels, nonfiction books, articles, essays, abstracts, papers, poetry, and personal websites. I charge between $1.95 and $3.95 per double-spaced page depending on the difficulty level of your writing.

For a free sample edit, please send two, double-spaced pages as a Word or RTF attachment. I offer this free service so that authors can evaluate the type of editing I provide without any cost. When I return your edited sample, I will provide you with a quote for your entire project.

Qualifications

I hold an M.A. in English from the University of Texas at Brownsville, from which I graduated with a perfect 4.0.  I earned my B.A. in both English and Economics at the University of Virginia and graduated with honors. I have been editing and writing a variety of content for businesses for over seventeen years.  Past clients have included educational institutions, real estate agencies, life insurance companies, tax accountants, and retailers. 

From 2004 to 2015, I served as Chief Editing Adviser to the CEO of a series of evolving educational organizations, in which capacity I performed substantive editing of proposals, announcements, advertisements, brochures, website content, and other important documents of the organization. I also researched and wrote original articles on numerous educational topics ranging from SAT testing advice to graduate school admissions.
