Finding the right people for your publishing team can be a challenge. When it comes time for copy editing and proofreading, you need someone who can catch the mistakes without compromising your voice. I believe in building solid, supportive working relationships with every author and understanding what they're looking for in each project.

You did the hard work of writing it, let me help you polish it for publication.

Copy editing: $.0045 to $.008 per word ($4.50-$8.00 per 1000 words) Most fall between the $5.50-$7.00 per 1000 words range.
Proofreading: $.0035 per word ($3.50 per 1000 words)

I work on all subgenres of romance (including erotica - no bestiality, rape, incest, etc), women's fiction, YA, fantasy, paranormal, chick lit, thriller, and action-adventure. I'm also willing to work on non-fiction such as memoir or essay on a case by case basis. Length doesn't matter - short to full-length is welcome!

Turnaround times are approximately two weeks for copy edits and one week for proofreading. Deadlines will be scheduled when we begin the process. Schedule and availability may change so if you are working on a tight deadline, please let me know so adjustments can be made.

I use Track Changes in Word. If you have another program, let's talk and see what we can do.

Struggling to get those ideas on to paper. Sometimes all you need is a little boost to help that initial idea into a fantastic story. It can be frustrating and sometimes it leads to writers deterring from the one thing they love to do, which is write.



I have helped so many authors turn their ideas into a story.



I offer three services:

Pre-made plot packages which include the draft blurb, synopsis, high level character details and the chapter breakdowns. The whole package is approximately 2-4k words.

Custom-made plot packages has the same level of detail as the pre-made plot package.

Ghostwriting services.

My turnaround for all services is 7 days.

The plot packages range from romance to thriller genres. The ghostwriting services are limited to the romance genre only.

Donna Rich Proofreading Copyediting (Editing)

Too often I find works submitted for simple proofreading after extensive editing are full of errors. The author tells me they have to pay extra for the proofreading. This makes little sense to me. When your reviews are telling you the story was good but riddled with errors, send it to me. If you have a previously or soon-to-be published novel you'd like to have another pair of eyes on, let me help you. I think you'll find my rates reasonable and my turnaround time is generally 24-72 hours depending on the length, degree of difficulty and my queue. Proofreading and Copyediting rate quotes available, email me at donnarich47@gmail.com So far, I have nothing but positive comments in my thread. I look for typos, misspellings, duplicate words, missing words/punctuation, extra spaces and, if necessary, sentence structure recommendations should you require copy editing beyond proofreading. All genres welcome. Writers with deadlines receive priority scheduling. Contact me for a quote and availability[edit]
