Services

To help writers who have lost jobs or whose incomes have been affected by COVID-19, I am providing a 20% discount on all services for all clients.

A word about my rates. Because every manuscript is different, some take longer to edit than others. That’s why a free sample edit is important: it helps me determine how long it will take to edit a manuscript, and then I can calculate a fee for the project.
