EDITING & PROOFREADING
HOW IT WORKS
Once package has been purchased, you’ll receive an email link to drop your file into Dropbox and proposed time-frame for delivery.
I work with track changes on Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat for PDF copy.
Minimum engagement: Ten hours = $600 USD
As a rough estimate, I work at a pace of 5-10 pages (250 words per page) per hour, depending on the shape of the copy.
So, ten hours would cover a proofread / copyedit of 50-100 pages.
Once I’ve seen the copy, I can give you a more specific estimate for completion.
I engaged Louisa for a quick turnaround proofread on a very complicated and technical book project. She not only delivered on the promised turnaround, she identified and noted a few issues that were beyond the scope of what I engaged her for. Issues that, once corrected, significantly improved the quality of the book. Thank you Louisa!

I’ve just sent off my first manuscript submission. I highly recommend working with Louisa particularly for newbies to the publishing game like me!
Whether your manuscript, essay or submission needs a quick proofread for typos or a complete copyedit, good editing as a bit like cleaning house and clutter-busting. You clean up mistakes, repetition and ‘clutter’ to bring the good stuff to the forefront.
Whatever written material you need edited or proofed, you can be confident I’ll send it back clean, crisp and ready for publication.
