Editing Services

Is your story hook strong enough? Have you covered the first-chapter essentials? This service is ideal for authors who want to strengthen their story kick-off without going for a full edit. This feedback could help you shape the rest of your story!

What you get: in-line comments, a detailed editorial report, resource recommendations, and a fifteen-minute follow-up call

Rate: starts at $150 (CAD)

Copyediting is editing at the sentence level. This includes editing grammar, punctuation, spelling, mechanics of style, wordiness, and internal consistency. I include stylistic editing in this as well, which addresses word order, flow, and clarity. This is where the magic happens!

What you get: a tracked manuscript, a clean manuscript, an editorial report, and a style sheet

Rate: starts at $0.027/word (CAD)

Proofreading is quality management more than editing. This step takes place once the manuscript has been typeset and is in PDF form.


One tiny error in a sentence can change the entire meaning of your words, and errors in formatting can be distracting. I have an eye for detail and will catch errors that could decrease the quality of your work.

What you get: a marked-up PDF

Rate: starts at $0.016/word (CAD)

Manuscripts often need more than one round of editing and sometimes multiple rounds at each step of editing.

After assessing what your manuscript needs, I will put together an editing package that fits your goals and your manuscript.

Sensitivity reading

I can provide sensitivity reading (also known as authenticity reading) regarding the following topics:

  • Bisexuality or pansexuality

  • Queer experiences within Christianity (and after leaving Christianity)

  • Chronic depression and suicidal ideation

  • Caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease


What you get: in-manuscript comments and a brief editorial report

Rate: varies according to project
