  • New Season, Updated Rates

    It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? Given the realities of inflation, I’ve had to update my Rates page. My new rate for 2022 is $40 per 5K words for copyediting or a copyediting/developmental package. However, I now offer 10% copyediting discounts to clients who find me through Kboards or who are members of the Wide […]

  • Happy Holidays!

    It’s been a busy year for editing. I realize that I have copyedited or proofread at least 35 books, as well as stepping up my work for a bi-monthly local magazine, which continues. It hasn’t been a great year for my own writing, but that’s OK. Last year was. We can all use a break. […]

  • Rate Drop!

    The Dow is not the only thing that’s dropping… I wanted to make sure my rates were in line with other editing services out there and so, starting today, I decided to lower copyediting rates across the board to a very affordable .006 per word as we head into the fall. Check out my Rates […]

  • Happy National Grammar Day!

    March 4 is National Grammar Day in the U.S.  To celebrate, in the midst of this endless winter, I’m offering a sweet, limited-time deal for new clients: Take 30 percent off my regular editing rates! This applies to short jobs as well as long ones, but does not apply to proofreading. New clients only, please. […]

  • Time Marches Onward…

    The birthday cake in the pic marks Edit for Indies‘ first five years in existence! I realized when I looked at my records just now that I did my first real freelance job under the Edit for Indies name in May 2012. I have also recently passed invoice #300, another milestone! It is true that […]

  • Seasonal Check-in

    Greetings! I tend to mostly post here in spring and fall, for some reason. This is my “fall” post and I have done some much-needed housekeeping on the site. Updates included minor tweaks to my rates (non-fiction editing is now one cent per word), though I have kept my rates stable, as I know this […]

  • Summer 2014 Wrap-up

    Thanks to everyone who participated in the writers’ poll! The results stayed fairly steady: Sci-Fi/Fantasy was number one and Romance came in at #2, followed by a tie between Literary Fiction and “Other.” I realize that I didn’t set an option for nonfiction books, which probably make up a large chunk of the “other” responses. Due to several recent […]

  • A New Editing Year Starts…

    And so does the Chinese New Year. Happy Year of the Horse! I found some beautiful and diverse horse images today on the CBC’s blog and thought I would share them. Looks like we are in for a dynamic and creative year, doesn’t it? So, what has Edit for Indies been up to? I am […]
