Editing and Proofreading

I now offer editing and proofreading services. I can check works of fiction or non-fiction. Proofreading is checking spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Copyediting includes proofreading and feedback regarding structure and style.

If you're interested in this service, simply send an email to with:

  • Your name and some contact details,
  • The word count of the work you want checked,
  • The name of the word processing software you use,
  • Whether you want proofreading or editing,
  • When you want it done by,

And I will email you back a quote and some more detailed questions to allow me to get an accurate idea of what you want.

Sometimes it may be beneficial to start with a sample piece of text. Some work requires a lot more work and attention than the writer realises and we need to be on the same page. If you want me to work on a smaller section of text first, such as one chapter, let me know in your email.


Proofreading starts at $15 per 1000 words.

Copyediting starts at $20 per 1000 words.

Anything I send back to you is still entirely yours and you can accept or reject my suggestions as you please.



Prices are subject to change. Deadlines may incur higher fees.
