Editing Services

Need an editor’s eye with an author’s heart? You’ve come to the write place!

(Haha, see what I did there?)

I bring years of editorial experience to the table as a copywriter, author, and freelancer, and I can’t wait to help you out with your next MG, YA, or NA novel.

You’re going to love my:

  • Competitive rates – all negotiable
  • Grammar skills
  • Ability to meet deadlines
  • Sense of voice and sentence structure
  • Positive attitude
  • Enthusiasm for your project

Sound good so far? Here are the packages I offer:

This option is ideal for the first or second draft of your book. I’ll read with an eye out for plot holes, inconsistencies, characterization problems, and world-building issues. You’ll receive an editorial letter detailing what I love about your work, what shows promise, and which areas need work. You’ll also be entitled to reads and editorial letters on at least two subsequent drafts.

SENSITIVITY READ – $50 flat rate
I can provide informed sensitivity reads regarding the following topics:

  • Middle Eastern family/culture (I am half Lebanese)
  • Bisexuality
  • Epilepsy

Note that the base rate for a sensitivity read does not include any other editing. If you need a sensitivity read added to another package, email me at helkat14@gmail.com to discuss discounted rates.

LATE DRAFT EDITING – $0.0025/word
This is a good option if your book is almost query or submission ready. I’ll help you tighten up any loose ends and shine up your work so it’s dressed to impress! After my read-through, you’ll get a short edit letter with my thoughts and suggestions.

LINE EDITING – $0.005/word
Need someone to look over your grammar, spelling, and punctuation? That’s always a good idea. In addition, I’ll be reading for things like words that are repeated too often, split metaphors, and sentence structure homogeneity.

Thanks for your consideration!
