Editing Services & Pricing

As a freelance editor, I'd love to join you on your book's journey! Whether you're looking for someone to evaluate the overall landscape of your story/work or you're in need of a gentle hand to guide you through the narrow paths of grammar and syntax, I can be of assistance.

Not sure what level of editing your book needs? If you've completed only one draft of your manuscript, I'd recommend a content edit. If you've gone through several rounds of edits yourself (or with another editor) and feel like the manuscript is in a good place, then you're probably ready for a copyeditor. And if you're still unsure, feel free to send me an email and ask!

 

  • Copyediting (fiction) - $10 per 1000 words
  • Copyediting (nonfiction) - $12 per 1000 words
  • Content editing (fiction) - $12 per 1000 words
  • Content editing (nonfiction) - $14 per 1000 words
 
*For pricing purposes, the number of words will be based on the total word count for a document in Microsoft Word. Counts below 600 will be rounded down, while counts above 600 will be rounded up to the nearest thousand.

Writing Services & Pricing

For nearly three years, I worked as a marketing content writer for a major Christian publisher. During that time I wrote back cover copy for books and prepared content for ads, social media sites, websites, and more. I especially enjoy the challenge of creating descriptions for books (to appear on the back of the book, online catalogs and retail websites, etc.), but if you're in need of content in other areas, please don't hesitate to get in touch and see if I might be of service to you.

 

Book Descriptions

Add-on to Editing Services: $50

If you'd like me to write a description for your book after editing it, I'll simply add $50 to the overall editing fee. I will provide you with two different options for the description (each option not exceeding 250 words).

Without Editing Services: $75

As with the add-on service, I will provide you with two different options for the book description.

 
 

Disclaimers: I reserve the right to decline a project (as an editor or writer) if I don't think I would be the best fit. Also, please note that I'm not a ghostwriter. While I'd be happy to consider writing a blog post for you under my own name, I don't feel comfortable writing published content under someone else's name. Thank you for understanding!

Testimonials

I have truly enjoyed working with Amber. She’s a conscientious young person with an old-fashioned work ethic. She puts lots of enthusiasm and energy into her work, and she’s a quick study. She also did an excellent job of mirroring the flavor and writing style of my books, to add to the marketing impact.
— Cindy Vincent, author of the Buckley & Bogey Cat Detective series
With precision and professionalism, Amber scoured my manuscript for missing words and grammatical errors. She caught the commas that I dropped and gently tucked them back into place. She has that admirable ability that allows her to be both editor and reader, to say, ‘This has great potential, so what if...?’ I was hoping for an editor who would help me enrich the story I believe in and I found her in Amber.
— Rachelle Rea Cobb, author of Write Well and the Steadfast Love series
