Editing & Translation Services

I love working with books at any stage of the publishing process—from inception to publication—and have a wealth of experience with fiction and nonfiction for both adults and children. If you’d like to get familiar with a selection of the books I’ve published, check out my Books, Books, Books page.

For developmental editing, my services include a full edit of your manuscript, whether you are preparing to query an agent, self-publish, or are querying small publishers directly. Contact me for rates for other services, such as editorial letters, query evaluations, and nonfiction proposal evaluations.

For proofreading and copyediting, I am familiar with AP, Chicago, and MLA styles. My clients include St. Martin’s Publishing Group, Flatiron Books, and Tor and its imprints.

I am also actively seeking clients for French-to-English translation.

Below are my rates (subject to change depending on the breadth and scope of the project):

  • Developmental editing—$60 per hour
  • Copyediting—$35 per hour
  • Proofreading—$30 per hour
  • Translation [French to English] — $.10 per word
