Editing Services

Three tiers of service are available for you to choose from: basic, intermediate, and comprehensive. I'm happy to answer your questions, and please do not hesitate to contact me with additional questions or concerns.

What's Included

  • Editing is performed in accordance with The Chicago Manual of Style  as well as other standardized resources.
  • Included is a notated copy of suggestions and corrections on your manuscript for your review. These suggestions and changes may be accepted or rejected on an individual basis.
  • Fact checking is not an included service; however, if I find an obvious problem, I will make note of it for you to resolve.
