FULL CIRCLE EDITING SERVICES
Your voice, your words, from beginning to end – elevated.
Why do you need an editor?
In short, you’ve worked hard on your project and it is worth being as polished as is humanly possible.
Why do you need me as your editor.
Previous clients have stated I’m a kind and gentle editor with a direct approach. I strive for excellence, but with what I like to think of as a softer, yet thorough, pink-pen approach. Further, I’m an avid reader and writer myself. This enables me to understand the world of a writer, author, and creator – your world. I am trustworthy with a very strong and honest work ethic. Marion Roach Smith, author, memoir coach and teacher of memoir writing, explains she has stretch marks from every book she’s worked on. I have found this to be true for me as well.
My genre of choice is non-fiction, specifically memoir. However, I have edited fiction, self-help, and a host of articles, resumes, one-sheets, and smaller projects. I have also done extensive website content creation and editing for Christian organizations and media outlets.
Hiring an editor for any level of editing allows you to focus on your message. Let someone else handle the details! In the long run, a thorough edit will maximize your time and enhance the quality of your work.
Along with project-based rates, I am available to discuss a flat, monthly rate for your church, company, organization, or personal business. This could include any editing projects (images, emails, newsletters, marketing ads, presentations, etc.) you have throughout the month on a priority basis. I can help catch any lingering issues so your projects and publications will look polished and professional.
As a rule, I follow CMOS (Chicago Manual of Style) guidelines, while leaving your voice and style safely intact.
Project-based rate for documents and manuscripts will be hourly or per word. This will be determined as your project needs are discussed. Contact me to schedule a free 30-minute consultation.
With a keen eye attuned to detail, projects will be thoroughly checked based on the editorial service chosen.
