Copy editing

Copy editing and feedback

You’ve spent hours writing, learning, researching, rewriting, and occasionally crying into your 5th cup of coffee for the day. Your skills are continually being tested and the further you move along the process, the more you realise there is to learn. That’s where I come in!

 

Instead of spending more of your precious time pouring over style guides, scowling at punctuation books, Googling spelling, and just generally having no idea what an em dash even is, you can focus on the writing of the words and leave the fixing of them to me.

All pricing is in Australian Dollars.

 

For international clients, fees will automatically be exchanged when you make a payment via PayPal.

Please see PayPal's website for further details.

Services are completed via Track Changes in Word or Suggesting mode in Google Docs.

 

Services are quoted based on individual projects.

Once a sample of work is sighted*, we can determine if word, hourly, or custom rates are appropriate.

 

*A sighting of your work is purely for quoting purposes. A sample edit will not be completed.

Banging your head against the wall should not be high on your priority list.

Let me help you remove it from your list altogether!

LAST BUT NOT LEAST

My services are most effective if your copy has already passed through a professional editor (all required levels--beta readers, developmental, line, etc.). It’s a tough convo to advise I’m unable to proceed when I find there’s issues with your storyline and sentence structure!

SAMPLE EDIT vs A VISUAL

While I don’t offer sample edits, it is beneficial for both of us to cast my eyes over the project before providing a quote. A visual allows me to understand your style of writing and the steps that have preceded it landing in my hands. This makes the quoting process more effective--which could mean more money in your pocket!

TYPES OF SAMPLES

A sample of a project will look different for everyone. A monthly blog would send a copy of the latest blog, whereas an 80k word manuscript would send a chapter or two from the middle of the book. Note: middle of the book gives a better idea of your writing once you're stuck into the story and not carefully setting out the first chapter for the 47th time!
