I finished a big edit yesterday and have quite some time available for editing in July!

I have an author-friendly pay structure ($25 deposit, rest paid upon delivery) and good turnaround times.

As a wild guess, that "big edit" was mine. So here is my experience with Davy Kent.

"I haven't really done developmental editing"...well, now he has. His work was exceptional. I do not pretend in any way that I am easy to work with. I am a demanding perfectionist, as well as borderline unmanageable. Mr Kent kept me on task and on time, from outline to publication, and never failed to improve my work.

"I can put you in contact with an interior design person to do the formatting"...well, now he does that too, and again his work was perfect. I could have followed his recommendation, but frankly I had no desire to establish a working relationship with anyone else at that point so he took on the challenge. I am afraid that "big edit" grew beyond the scope of what he had in mind originally, but his skill set grew with it and I would recommend him for interior formatting and design even to someone who otherwise doesn't need an editor.

It is an honest truth that without Mr Kent I not only could not write a book, but never would have even started.

Thank you, Tim!

I have a short two-week-ish hiatus as I have two medical procedures coming up and am finishing two other projects, which means I have expected availability again around the 28th of July.

I'm back! Hire me to copyedit your book!

Reach out via email to [email protected] with an excerpt of your novel, your word count, and anything you think I need to know. I'll get back to you with a short sample edit and a quote. My pay structure is author friendly ($25 USD deposit with the remainder due after delivery) and I tend to have decent turnaround times (~1 week for <70k-word novels). I utilize the Chicago Manual of Style, recent convention in your genre, and your preferences when editing. You can always ask why I've made a choice, and I tend to offer you options too where relevant.
