Questions and Answers

What Level of Editing Do I Need?

After you submit an initial inquiry through the Contact page form, I will respond by email. You may then use the form to submit three pages from the middle of your manuscript. I will provide a complimentary sample edit to determine the level of editing your project needs, and for you to see whether or not we are a good fit. However, once an evaluation is made, the decision of which type editing you want is up to you.

Which Resources Do You Use?

  • The current Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary for use with Chicago Manual of Style for book projects
  • The current Webster's New World College Dictionary for use with the Associated Press Stylebook for articles, newsletters, etc.
  • The current Chicago Manual of Style
  • The current Associated Press Stylebook
  • For Christian manuscripts, The Christian Writer's Manual of Style

Will Having My Manuscript Professionally Edited Guarantee Publication?

No. Getting published is about producing the right project for the right market—at the right time. An editor helps you present your project in the best light, which may open doors, but there are no guarantees.

What Type Of Manuscripts Do You Edit?

  • Juvenile fiction
  • Memoirs
  • Devotions
  • Articles
  • Newsletters
  • Short stories
  • Press releases
  • Business material

How Do I Format My Manuscript?

Manuscripts should be double-spaced, 12-point Times New Roman, with 1-inch margins all around. Submit pages in MS Word format. After sending an initial inquiry to me and receiving a response, then return to the Contact page. There you can fill out the form, then attach the manuscript pages to your inquiry. Click Add File at the bottom of the form on the Contact Page.

What Is the Cost?

Pricing depends upon the level of service required. Contact me using the Contact page regarding prices for (A) copyediting and (B) proofreading. Currently, I'm not accepting developmental editing. For book manuscripts, I charge by the page (a 250-word, double-spaced page). For shorter projects, I charge by the hour.

How Are Fees Paid?

For most projects, I request half of the fee be paid upfront. The balance is then due at the end of the project. At times, the fees are divided and paid in thirds. I am flexible and willing to work with clients.

How Long Will the Editing Take?

It depends upon the level of editing required and the length of your project. I try to finish projects within a reasonable amount of time.
