I am the author of twelve books, one of which has been published in ten countries and translated into seven languages (you can look up my bio on Wikipedia--the entry is under "Richard Crasta". In addition to indie publishing, I have also been published by Penguin, HarperCollins, and Fourth Estate, among others.

I have an MFA in Writing from Columbia University, New York, and an MA in Literature from American University, Washington D.C.; I studied editing at a workshop taught by a senior editor from Little, Brown and worked at a New York literary agency for a year, evaluating a wide range of manuscripts and writing detailed content critiques.

In recent years, I have edited nonfiction books, romance novels, thrillers, literary novels, science fiction novels, and NGO reports. I have edited books by first-time authors as well as by a senior professor, a veteran Hollywood television writer-producer (Bill Taub), and a Princeton alumnus, and occasionally in British style, though mainly in American, Chicago Manual style.

Thanks to a few, recent high-quality clients, I feel much more confident of the quality of my editing. For testimonials, please scroll down to the bottom of my web page (the "editing-and-proofreading-services" page).

Thank you.

We're keenly aware of how hard it is for independent writers to find quality editing and eBook formatting at reasonable prices. You need to make a good impression on your readers but often the cost of such services is prohibitive, especially when you tack on the cost of book covers and promotion. As such, we offer a variety of editorial services and eBook formatting at extremely reasonable rates in order to help authors prepare their books for publication and avoid some of the stress involved in the process.

Email us to arrange a free 2000 word sample of our services.

SPECIAL OFFER – To celebrate our second anniversary this June, we have:

A limited number of million-word editing packages available. The price is an astonishing $1499/£1179 for complete editing of a cumulative million words – no expiry date, and the words can be from more than one author. So club together and share a package, if you wish. For example, it could be ten 100,000 word novels spread over ten years. That’s $1.50 /£1.18 per 1000 words and a saving of 85%.

and

Several half-a-million-word editing packages available. The price for the slightly smaller package is an astonishing $899/£709 for complete editing of a cumulative half a million words. For example, it could be five 100,000 word novels spread over five years. That’s $1.80/£1.41 per 1000 words and a saving of 82%.

(Costs payable over two months. A 50% deposit payable in June to secure your package, and then the balance to be paid in July)

*Now Booking for 2017*

As an editor, proofreader, and copywriter for the past nine years, I enjoy working closely with authors to help them refine their voices and prepare their manuscripts for publication. I offer high-quality, professional, and affordable editing services, and my clients include New York Times, USA Today, and Amazon bestselling authors.

Editing Services

I offer three types of editing services, depending on the level of attention that your manuscript needs. If you aren't sure which service best applies to you, feel free to contact me for a complimentary assessment.

Proofreading, $.004/word: This final check for surface-level errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, and word usage is a must for all authors who want to deliver a polished finished product to their readers. Both a visual and audio read-through are conducted to ensure the maximum number of errors are caught. Read more at https://www.caraquinlan.com/proofreading.

Copy Editing Package, $.01/word for a two-pass edit (copy edit + proofread): This highly technical, nitty-gritty stage of editing primarily ensures that your writing is grammatically sound, but also focuses heavily on syntax and sentence structure to present a manuscript that flows well and provides an enjoyable reading experience. Read more at https://www.caraquinlan.com/copy-editing-cx38.

Line Editing Package, $.0145/word for a two-pass edit (line edit + proofread): This rigorous evaluation challenges every word, sentence, and paragraph in your manuscript and delves deep into the writing process to bring out your best work. Line editing enhances the prose, suggests stylistic choices, and helps to make your writing as engaging as possible. Read more at https://www.caraquinlan.com/line-editing.

After working for over a decade for large publishing houses (MacMillan, Bedford/St. Martin's, Thomson) I am branching out and working with independently published authors, as I am tired of rejecting good manuscripts because they "aren't the right fit" and shooting down manuscripts authors have put so much effort into.

I offer all editorial services for half a cent per word. That is development editing, copy editing, line editing, proofreading - everything is a flat HALF A CENT rate.

I also build author web pages to help showcase the books I edit.

I will put the same care in editing your mansucript as you did in writing it, and I will use my experience to do everything I can to make your manuscript the best it can be.

I also offer 5 query letters to publishers of your choice when I edit your manuscript.

Please email me or send PM and I would be glad to talk with you.

And for $0.005/word, our proof-page readers will give your final ARC (after copyedits are complete) a fresh set of eyes one last time before publication.

I'm a published jewelry designer and instructor who has authored over 50 design tutorials, newsletter articles, and online courses. I'm extremely detail-oriented and can easily spot grammatical errors. Misused and misspelled words are my specialty. My goal is to help you present your very best work!

I love Indie authors and self-publishers! I'm happy with nearly any genre. Some of my authors have appeared on the USA Today, New York Times, and Wall Street Journal Bestseller lists.

I'm incredibly motivated! Let me help you! I love my authors!

My goal as a copy editor is to spot mistakes and correct light readability and flow issues. It is not my goal to perform content editing duties such as editing plot lines, restructuring paragraphs, configuring layouts or editing story content. I will:

- correct spelling errors
- correct word usage errors
- correct syntax errors
- correct grammar errors
- correct punctuation errors
- correct capitalization errors
- Perform light editing for sentence structure and readability

MS Word documents are preferred. I utilize the Track Changes function for my edits. I will provide an edited copy (titled Suggested Edits) with all changes shown, so you are free to accept or reject changes on an individual basis.

Pricing Terms:
- My rate is $0.005 per word. For example, a 50,000 word novel would cost $250.00.
- Repeat clients will receive a 15% customer loyalty discount.
- For word counts, the count provided by Microsoft Word (the original word count when I receive it) is perfect.
- I prefer to receive a non-refundable deposit of half the quoted price up front, via PayPal, and half when my work is completed and submitted.

As a freelance copy editor, my skills run the gamut. The majority of my experience is technical (medical, science, and academia). However, I have recently begun to explore the realm of fiction editing. I have beta read and proofread a few books now from genres such as horror, fantasy, and romance. In addition, I am blog proofreader and ghostwriter of e-newsletters for a local salon. I pride myself of efficient, meticulous edits while maintaining the author's voice. Let me show you how we can work together![edit]

As a published author and freelance editor, I offer a professional level of criticism for fiction writers who are serious about taking their work to the next level.

Developmental/Substantive and Structural Editing: $5/2,500 words

Substantive/Developmental Editing: the document is evaluated as a whole and problems of structure, organization, coherence and consistency are corrected

Structural Editing: organization and flow of the document is evaluated at sentence and paragraph levels

Included:
-Inline comments regarding: characterization, pace, tone, voice, clarity, syntax, flow, dialogue, POV
-A written critique evaluating: overall story arc, organization, character development, plot and sub-plots, structure, chronological progression, theme, believability, inconsistencies and weak spots, completeness, overall impact of work, marketability
-A smaller critique at the end of each break or chapter for writers with longer manuscripts
-I will not only point out flaws, but also offer solutions
-Note: this gig does not include line or copy editing.

What I LOVE: FICTION!! With a preference for all things fantasy. Also included: Romance, YA, NA, Political Intrigue, Action, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Erotica (as long as it has a plot line), and Horror. I will critique any length manuscript including micro-fiction, short-fiction, and full-length fiction. I also love writers with a unique voice, so give me your heavy accents, weird dialects and rough inflections. I’ll dive right in!

What I DON’T Love: NON-FICTION!! I also don’t do religion, poetry, childrens, and westerns.

* As I am new to both Fiverr (the platform I have chosen to work from) and KBoards, I am currently offering specials on all of my gigs to help me get my foot in the door. Prices are currently set at up to 1/5th of what I normally charge, so take advantage of me while you can!

*If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

I understand your fiction & non-fiction projects. Whether you have written beat poetry or the next blockbuster screenplay, a lavish, bodice-ripping period romance or a science fiction adventure, I know your form and genre. I know about important things like leaving the dialects alone, preserving your voice and vision, and making sure you retain complete creative control. If you have written non-fiction, be assured I will be focused on helping you communicate your ideas clearly and concisely, giving you a better, stronger, and perfectly crafted manuscript.[edit]
