Hiring the right editor for your job is very important, as different editors have different skills and areas of expertise. I can help you determine what you might need.
As for how I work: I edit electronically in Microsoft Word, using the track changes feature. For book editing, I like to perform a sample edit so that you get a good sense of how I’ll approach your manuscript and feel confident moving forward together. Proofreading is done on hard copy or in a PDF (and occasionally in Word). Consultations take place in person or by phone.
I charge by the hour or by the project and am happy to provide a free estimate. Feel free to contact me, Jody Berman, and we can get started!
