author services

I currently offer the following services to authors:

  • Editing
  • Book formatting


Does your manuscript need help?

My editing services include developmental, structural, line editing, and copyediting. I have experience editing memoirs, academic papers, technical documents, and essays, but I specialize in fiction—sci-fi, urban fantasy, and paranormal are a few of my favorites.

And I loves indies! I offer a 10-20% discount to members of the Northwest Independent Writers Association.

Email me today to discuss your project. I normally ask for a sample of your manuscript so I can get a feel for your material and what it needs, and I’ll “test-edit” a few pages for free so you can see what I would bring to your project.

Book formatting

Do you have a polished manuscript that needs formatting for publication?

I’m working with Vellum to produce elegant and professional ebooks for Kindle/.mobi, .epub, and PDF. I can also produce print-ready files for print-on-demand titles, though I currently reserve this service as an add-on for ebooks I’m formatting.

Below are my current rates and guidelines. Both are subject to change.

Word Count Price (Mobi & EPUB) Add Print
<20K $40 +$20
20-50K $50 +$25
50-75K $70 +$40
75-100K $80 +$50
100-150K $90 +$60
150-200K $100 +$70
200K+ negotiable negotiable

The details:
Your ebook (.mobi and .epub) and print-ready (PDF for CreateSpace) files will be created in Vellum using your final, edited manuscript file—accepted formats include .docx and Pages. Your final cover art must be submitted with your manuscript. You will also receive your Vellum file for your archives (requires the Vellum app to open/revise.)

Prices above are for manuscripts that include up to five images. If your manuscript contains more than five images, please inquire about add-on fees.

Turnaround time varies. For ebook formatting, turnaround is often between five and seven business days from the time your final manuscript and cover files are received. Print formatting takes a bit longer, with a typical turnaround of ten business days.

Formatted ebook and print files will be provided for your review, and this service includes up to two minor edits (e.g, spelling correction, adjusting image placement). Additional charges will apply if you need to make major changes to your manuscript and/or if you request changes after you’ve approved your review files.

Prices and scheduling are subject to change. If you have questions, please get in touch!
