Here are the services I currently offer. Feel free to contact me for more information.
I do three types of editing:
Have prose that doesn't soar? Doesn't sing? Doesn't pack the punch it should? I can help you change that. I look at your work with the eye of both an editor and a writer, and help you shape and tell your story in the most interesting, yet concise, way. I get my hands dirty chopping and changing your prose to make it the best that it can be.
I don't try to impose my style upon you. I try to keep your tone and flow, but will suggest changes if I think they're necessary.
Here are some of the editing and rewriting projects I've recently worked on:
The Open Schoolhouse by Charlie Reisinger — Charlie asked me to do a substantive edit on his manuscript. I helped Charlie tighten his prose, and made suggestions about the structure of each chapter and the book as a whole.
The Cabbage Tree Method by Adam Hyde — This book started life as a series of blog posts and notes that Adam had written over the period of a year or two. Working with Adam, I rewrote each chapter and suggested where he need to add more information to bolster the narrative and his core argument.
I charge either by the word or by the hour, depending on the service you choose. My fees are:
I'm also willing to negotiate a flat fee for larger projects.
I charge more than many of the folks you find on those hire a freelance writer job sites. What you get in return is quality, professional work.
