Editing package (ten hours)
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.
Sometimes this means fixing up the grammar or spelling, other times it can be formatting and re-structuring.
I’ve worked as an online editor, book editor, magazine editor, newspaper editor and freelanced for major corporations, Universities, online course providers, boutique agencies and individual authors. From proofreading annual reports to editing competition submissions, my experience is wide, I work quickly, and I love what I do.
I’ve also sold a memoir on proposal only, so I can confidently edit your book proposal or submission.
Perhaps you’d like me to edit some course material or simply proofread your website copy or annual report?
Whatever written material you need edited or proofed, you can be confident I’ll send it back clean, crisp and ready for publication.
Editing package includes:
A track-changes edit or proofread of your Word Document
My minimum engagement is ten hours of editing or proofreading
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 started work, I can give you a more specific time estimate for your project.
