Services

Editing: I offer affordable, skilled editing services that span from basic proofreading to structural edits. For longer works, I will provide a free sample edit of the first 10 pages.

Pricing:

  • Rates as low as $0.005/word, dependent on the complexity of the work
  • $10 minimum charge for short documents
  • Handled via PayPal invoicing, half due up-front and the remainder upon completion

I have experience with the following:

  • Fiction: novellas, full-length novels (multiple genres), picture books
  • Non-fiction: handbooks, academic articles, college admissions essays

I edit because I think it’s fun, and I enjoy helping writers create products they can view with pride. Contact me about your manuscript and we can discuss details.

Beta Reading: Beta reading services can be folded in with editing but are best done first. I will beta-read for $35 (up to 50K words); $50 (up to 100K words); or $100 (anything over 100K words).

Book Reviews: I will provide an honest book review in exchange for a copy of the book, and will posted the review here at The Edifying Word, Goodreads, Amazon, and Twitter. What I love most about doing book reviews by request is the opportunity to read things I may never have found or picked up on my own; therefore, while I am especially interested in picture books, historical fiction, and nonfiction, I will gladly accept any genre (excluding erotica).

Please note that I receive many more requests for review than I can possibly handle; I will do my best to respond to all requests and post reviews in a timely manner.

Submit your request by emailing me at kristin@theedifyingword.com. I look forward to working with you.
