Maybe your dream is to be a published author. Maybe you have already published a book before. No matter your past experiences, if you have a manuscript that you want to take to the next level, you are in the right place. Together we will work to transform your book into its best version — one that you love and are ready to publish.
FOCUSING ON YOU
My editing services are tailored to where you are in the writing process. Based on the current state of your manuscript, you will benefit from either developmental editing or copy editing. I also provide a specialized service — sensitivity editing — which is for those who are writing about or for Indigenous people or communities.
You have written your book, but something is not quite right just yet. Conducting a developmental edit on your book is the perfect way to help identify what might be missing and ensure your manuscript reaches its fullest potential. This type of editing ensures the organization, structure, and flow of your manuscript is perfect for your target audience. It also helps ensure that your intended message comes across and that the purpose of the book is achieved.

You have written a manuscript that is about an Indigenous person, group, or community with an important message to tell. You know that this is an important topic to cover, but you want to make sure you do it in a respectful and accurate way. It is important to hire an Indigenous editor, such as myself, to help with this process. Conducting a sensitivity edit helps to ensure proper representation of Indigenous people and communities, while ensuring style principles and best practices are followed.

You have proudly written your book, but you need another set of eyes to make sure it is perfected and polished before you submit it for publishing. Conducting a copy edit on your book helps to find any pesky errors in grammar, spelling, or syntax that are remaining. It ensures your writing is correct, accurate, and consistent throughout so that you are submitting the absolute best version of your book.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long does it take you to edit a manuscript?
This depends on the type of editing, the current state of progress of the manuscript (how much work is needed), and the manuscript's length. I work with my clients to decide upon a mutually agreed deadline that is then written into the contract.
How soon can
you edit my manuscript?
I am dedicated to my editing projects and I honour the clients that I work with. For this reason, I only take on so many projects at one time. Fill out my submission form to contact me and I can provide you with my current availability.
How can I pay
for your editing services?
The main way that I accept payment for my editing services is through PayPal. However, if PayPal is not an option for a client, there are other methods that can be discussed and agreed upon in the project contract.
How much do
your services cost?
The cost of my editing services varies based on the type of editing required, the current state of progress in the manuscript, and the manuscript's length.
How do I communicate
I communicate with my clients by email, phone call, or video call (Zoom or Google Meets). I am in frequent communication with my clients throughout the editing process and I will reach out if I have questions or need clarification on something in the manuscript.
How do I get started with you?
First, fill out the submission form, which will provide me with the essential information about you and your manuscript. We will then set up a brief phone call to get to know each other a bit more and discuss the details of the work to be done.
