Services and Rates

EDITING SERVICES

Not everyone needs the same level of intensity. Why pay for what you don't need?

Proofreading

Proofreading includes reading for spelling, punctuation, and grammar. In addition, I will keep an eye out for any formatting gremlins.

Copy Editing

Everything in a proofread, and then some. Copy editing includes reading for continuity, flow, and basic structure. Also includes light fact-checking.

Content Editing

Spelling, punctuation and grammar is just the start. You get light fact-checking along with intensive, in-depth reading for content, flow and structure. Also includes an additional proofreading pass at no additional cost.

Edits don’t have to be torture, even when they’re detailed, thorough, and meticulous.

AND MORE

It takes a lot of brain to make the words go, and sometimes you just need someone else to sweat the small stuff. I've got you covered there, too.

Liz is one of those editors who truly works with you to bring out the best in your story without asking you to compromise on author voice or stylistic choices.

Vanessa North

Liz is a joy to work with. She had edited several of my books, and always respected my voice. A stickler for details and grammar, I could count on her to catch my typos and poor choice of words!
