Clean things up and get ready to publish
Not only can I fix typos and grammatical errors, I will help ensure your ideas are well developed and organized in a clear, logical, and enticing way. I will eliminate distractions so your message resonates with readers and is easy for them to understand. When you work with me, your writing will sound like you, only better.
Or, if you're this close to publishing, I'll keep my mouth shut and just worry about the typos!
At Nomad Editorial, copyediting includes everything from offering suggestions on how to improve your book to cleaning up typos and grammatical errors.
6 cents a word for initial editing, $100/hour for optional additional review
If you just need a fresh set of eyes to do one final check for embarrassing mistakes—and don't want me to offer any suggestions for improvement or ask any questions (unless something seems really wrong!)—proofreading is for you.

Editing and Proofreading Packages
For clients in need of editing or proofreading on an ongoing basis, I offer packages that provide regular access to my services (and, typically, a quick turnaround). This is ideal for frequent blog posts and newsletters, or when you're planning to be creating a large amount of content (say, for a new online course) in a short period of time. Each package must be used up within two months and a new one can be purchased at any time.
Proofreading Package: 5,000 words for $200; Editing Package: 5,000 words for $400
NOTE: All prices are in U.S. dollars.
When I got my manuscript back from Amy, it was filled with corrections and suggestions for changes. It was amazing! Every single suggestion made my text better, and my readers will benefit from Amy’s hard work.
Not only did Amy correct minor punctuation errors, she gently pushed me to write more and expand ideas that really helped my book take shape.
After Amy's editing, it really did feel like it was still my voice, but better. The emotion and poignancy were still there, but my thoughts were now subtly structured and organised for ease of reading.
