It's a new year!

Book me to copyedit your book! Rates are unchanged from last year, so no new surprises on that front. 0.0045 USD per word.

I'm anticipating a major business shift later this year with further specialization and beginning developmental editing; until then, it's business as usual. Copyediting, copyediting, copyediting. Any genre welcome, but I have the most experience in fantasy, sci-fi, romance, thrillers, and self-help.

Reach out via email at [email protected] with an excerpt of your novel and I'll get back to you with a sample edit!

A new site! It's much better than the old SimpleMachines Forum, innit?

Book me to copyedit or proofread your novel! Like my previous post, my rates are still unchanged, so you can still expect the same low, budget-friendly rates (0.0045 USD per word for copyediting).

No new news on the specialization front, so please continue sending me manuscripts for fantasy, sci-fi, romance, thrillers, and self-help.

Interested in a sample edit? Feel free to send me 1000 to 1500 words of your manuscript to [email protected].

Here I am once again! This time I'm finishing up a proofread of a self-help book. I have an immediate slot available before March, and a couple slots available for then, so now would be a great time to book me and not need to wait too long for us to get started.

0.0045 USD per word for copyediting. Reach out to me via email at [email protected] with a short excerpt of your book for a sample edit.

Need more info, like titles I've worked on and testimonials? You can always check out the OP of this thread and the website in my signature!

Another week, another bump.

Hire me to edit your book! I'm a straightforward copyeditor who doesn't dilly-dally and gives you exactly what you're looking for. Sci-fi, fantasy, romance, thriller, self-help very welcome.

I want to boost my sci-fi shelf a little more, so I'm running a 25% discount on sci-fi titles right now. 0.0045 USD per word for copyediting, 0.003 USD per word for proofreading. With the discount for sci-fi, that turns into 0.0034 and 0.0023 USD per word, respectively.

Contact me via email at [email protected] and attach a small excerpt of your novel for a sample edit. I have an author-friendly pay structure ($25 deposit, rest paid upon delivery) and good turnaround times. I follow the Chicago Manual of Style, recent literary convention, as well as your own preferences. Like your ellipses a certain way? Grey/gray, blond/blonde, spaced en dashes vs. unspaced ems? We can make it work.

A recent testimonial from Katelynn Koontz: "Having never used a professional editor for my work before, I was a little nervous and uncertain of what to expect. Davy made the process absolutely painless. He was incredibly fast, incredibly thorough, and very professional through the entire process. I will most certainly be recommending him to anyone I know looking to have something edited!"

I received a testimonial from Anna V. Leigh, who recently published her first romance novel, The Russian Girl.

"I reached out to several copyeditors before finally choosing Davy, and to be honest, it was an easy choice to make. From start to finish, he was polite, professional, knowledgeable, and extremely quick, which helped me to produce my book ahead of schedule. I needed a thorough clean-up of my manuscript, and Davy delivered that and so much more. He brought his editorial wisdom, style savvy, and years of experience to bear on my manuscript, and I couldn’t be more delighted with the results. Thank you, Davy, for taking such good care of my book."

Thank you, Anna!
