Menu of Services
I provide comprehensive editing services for novels, memoirs, short stories, poetry, essays and other works, both fiction and non-fiction.
I also provide additional services in support of authors querying agents and/or submitting to publishing houses.
I follow the Chicago Manual of Style (17th Edition) for all projects.
Proofreading is for a final draft of writing that has already finished the editing process.
Regardless of how meticulous you've been, the fresh eyes of a professional can catch errors easily missed by anyone close to the work.
I duplicate your document in GoogleDrive and mark the copy to correct all errors at the technical level. i.e. spelling, grammar, punctuation, syntax.

Total Editorial Package
This option is best for the writer whose work is already in a 2nd+ draft and ready to be finalized.
With the Total Editorial package, you get your entire manuscript edited line by line (line-editing).
(I duplicate your document in GoogleDrive and mark the copy.)
In addition to these line and scene specific notes, you also get a 10-page (minimum) summary report that identifies overall patterns in your work and a broad view analysis to help you become a better writer.
price per word
I am available for proofreading, editing, writing and evaluations at a rate of $45/hr for smaller projects, such as query letters, short stories, proposals, works of poetry, blogs, web content, business documents, etc.
+ 2 coaching calls
Save $35 when you purchase two coaching calls at the same time as your editorial.
Our first call occurs after I complete my first reading of your manuscript, and before I edit/write your evaluation. This call helps me to more deeply understand your vision so that I can tailor my feedback to help you hit what you're aiming for.
On our second call, after you receive my report, we deepen your understanding of the feedback and create a clear plan for you to implement it correctly.

I hold Cassandra's multiple talents as an editor in the highest regard. Her clear understanding of the English language has been an invaluable aid to my writing. She goes the extra mile to help and encourage me to improve my writing.
