As the writer of any type of content, you have done the hard work. So first, congratulations! You did it! Now, you need a guide to help smooth out any potential issues.
I act as that guide—a beacon—building a trusting partnership with you through kindly worded queries, astute suggestions, and changes that preserve your voice.
Instead of paying for multiple editors, you can hire me for your substantive (developmental) editing and copyediting needs in one packaged deal, saving you time and money. My package deal includes several editorial rounds so I can focus in on every detail while also addressing big-picture issues.
PRICES, dependent on the depth of editing needed determined by a sample edit:
Copyediting (includes line editing) only: $0.015–$0.025 per word
Edited over 100 books, 6 websites, 9 business documents, 37 resumes and cover letters, 28 biographies, and 4 personal statements.

“Katie is great! Katie really helped make the process feel easy and smooth. She was thorough, offered wonderful insights, and gave kind affirmations along the way. Writing a book is not easy, and we all know that our first few drafts are not the most enjoyable thing to read through. She could see through any messy section and pull the heart of the message out. This is absolute talent.” (Brittany, self-help book)
“Katie greatly exceeded my expectations as an editor. Her sharp eye for small errors and her ability to give the book a 10,000-foot view with regard to the general organization of the material were critical for me in putting out the best book possible on my topic. I always felt like she was in my corner and was invested in our ability together to produce a quality book. I’ll certainly be reaching out to her again.” (Cindy, religious book)
“The difference between the manuscript I handed to Katie and the one she handed back after she was done was night and day. I’d be ashamed to give away the raw manuscript for free. Now I’ve got a book worth reading and something I’m proud to put my name on. Katie is a professional and you can see it in her work. She’s incredible at not only finding errors in grammar and punctuation but her ability to find holes in the plot, character development, and the overall flow of a fictional work (all while maintaining the voice of the author) is where she really shines.” (Cody, fiction book)
