Services and Rates

I WANT YOU! (TO BE AS AWESOME A WRITER AS YOU CAN BE.) 

This is a business page for the writing, editing, copyediting, proofreading and fact-checking facets of my freelance career. (You can read more about my delightful personality and bona fides at the side of this page). My fees for my kick-ass editorial services are below.

I LIKE BIG BOOKS AND I CANNOT LIE

Since I’m a huge book nerd, I often find myself drawn to genre fiction: science fiction, fantasy, urban fantasy and romance. But I dig other types of literature as well, and sometime I Have Opinions About Issues, usually having to do with the literary world.

I will be also posting interviews with authors and reviews of books I particularly love, as well as blog posts on issues which interest me, and, I hope, you, dear readers and clients.
