Line Editing/Proofreading


You’ve torn apart your manuscript from front to back and read through it until you can’t see straight, all to make it the best it can be. Now, it’s time for a professional to buff and polish it up.

I will line edit/proofread your book.

Please note: I will proofread books that contain closed door sex. No open-door sex or erotica.

This is not a developmental edit. This line edit/proofread will look at:

  • Style
  • Grammar
  • Word usage errors/repetition
  • Spelling
  • Punctuation
  • Flow
  • Inconsistencies

I work with Word documents, with Track Changes turned on.

  • In-line changes that you can review and accept or reject
  • Comment bubbles as appropriate
  • A separate report is available for an extra charge of $10

I will make two passes on the manuscript, to double-check my work and ensure I catch as many errors as possible. I encourage you to review each change I make and approve or reject them as you see fit.

Authors I have proofread for:

Leenie Brown

Rose Fairbanks

Annilee Nelson

Becca Syme (non-fiction)

Why choose me to be your line editor/proofreader?

As an author of 29 published novels and novellas and an editor of dozens more, I understand how important it is to present a polished manuscript to agents, publishers, and the public. In addition to correcting errors, I will give you feedback in a positive manner. I can’t help it. I used to teach special ed. You can take the teacher out of the classroom, but not the classroom out of the teacher! Just because you have high standards, doesn’t mean you can’t find an affordable editor that is also timely and professional. Contact me today; I have my red pen in hand!
