Services for Authors:
I provide detailed, line
by line copy editing of novels, nonfiction books, articles, essays,
abstracts, papers, poetry, and personal websites.
I charge between $2 and
$4 per double-spaced page depending on the difficulty level of your
writing. For a free sample edit, please send two,
double-spaced pages as a Word or RTF attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. I offer
this free service so that authors can evaluate the type of service I
provide without any cost and so that I can provide you with a specific
quote for your entire project.
I am the author of three published novels and the editor
and publisher of Ancient Paths
Literary Magazine. I have been editing fiction, poetry, and non-fiction
for over fifteen years. Some of my past novel editing projects have
included Shall Die By the Sword by T.S. Beckett and The Paragon
of Animals by Scott Bachmann.
I hold an M.A. in English from the University of Texas
and a B.A. in English and Economics from The University of Virginia.
My poetry and short stories have appeared in numerous
magazines. For a complete list of publication credits, click here.
