Academic and creative researcher, writer, and editor with 9+ years of experience.
After spending the last nine years researching, writing, and editing academic papers and fictional works, I began offering paid freelance editing services at the tail end of 2019. Since then, I have copy edited two published novels, two short stories, and carried out the copy edits of individual chapters for writers who post their works online, as well as entire stories for authors who aren’t quite sure of the path they want to take just yet.
Of my own works, I’ve written seventy-one stories, ranging from novella-length to novel-length, from 2017 onward. In the same period of time, I have edited sixty-nine of my own drafts.
I’m a dedicated and organized writer and editor, and I can work well with most timelines on the majority of projects. I do my best to make sure everyone walks away happy with the final product, especially the client.

- per word
- per word
This means that a 50,000 word novel will cost $200 USD for a copy edit and $100 USD for a proofread.
Generally, I request half of the cost upfront and the second half upon completion. However, I am more than willing to work with any budget and any payment plan you may need.
I also offer a free sample of up to 2,500 words on any manuscript that is 50,000 words or above. If your manuscript has a lower word count than that, don’t worry! I still offer a free sample of 1,000 words.
During my edits, I do my best to explain the reasoning behind the suggestions I make, but in the end, as the author, the changes you make are entirely your choice.
