Editing Plans & Rates

I offer three plans, plus editing

  • THE BASICS
  • WOW - A Woman of Her Words
  • MEM - The Memoir Maker
THE BASICS - You write. I proof.

The plan fee plus editing includes...
  • Lower order editing: punctuation, grammar, spelling. No sentence structure editing or writing. Marked up electronic delivered back to you.
  • Basic consultation - One free email or 30 minute phone consultation required before project starts.
  • Your writing, at the very least, must be readable, easy for me to read, easily deciphered, clear, plain, decipherable, intelligible. Yes, basic editing requires that I read and am able to understand the text and context of your writing.
  • If your writing needs help beyond THE BASICS, you will likely need to subscribe to my WOW plan...  A Woman of Her Words™ plan.
  • If you need a total re-write or for me to tell your story for you from scratch, you  will likely need to subscribe to my MEM plan... Memoir Maker™ plan.
  • Plan fee disclosed after initial consultation.
