Services Offered

I specialize in editing fantasy novels, although I have been known to dabble in sci-fi and romance as well. Wherever your story leads you, I am happy to follow! Using Track Changes in Word (the “suggesting” feature in Google Docs) ensures that you will know exactly what edits I am making and can accept or reject them as you see fit; after all, it is your story!

Proofread

The final stage in the editing process. Your manuscript should be nearly ready to publish when you take this step. Errors in grammar, punctuation, and spelling will be fixed, and missing words inserted. I will also fix formatting, for an additional fee.

Starting at $0.01/word

Copy Edit

After you have made your manuscript the best you can, you need someone to make sure that everything is in place. Readability will be enhanced and technical errors and inconsistencies (grammar, repetition, word choice, style, repetition, spelling, and repetition), as well as confusing/awkward wording, fixed.

Starting at $0.015/word

Line Edit

Have a story but aren’t sure everything is in perfect order? I can assist you on your journey as you take your story from draft to full-fledged novel. Your WIP will be inspected line by line, examining plot, characters and, yes, grammar and punctuation. I also offer limited rewriting services!

Recent Reviews

My fierce love of fantasy novels, extensive experience editing documents, and my Bachelor’s degree in English from BSC have enabled me to provide excellent services to all my clients. Since I began my freelancing career in earnest, all my projects have received five-star reviews! Here are a few snippets of feedback my clients have provided:

“Michaeli was the perfect editor for my first novel. Not only was she meticulous in her editing, she also provided encouragement to me as a writer. Through her work on the manuscript, I was able to confidently start the process of pitching my book.”

            – Heather Stephens

“Apart from being a joy to work and interact with, Michaeli provided fast and expert edits on my book. Without her help, I would not have published Time Sneak: Emergence in 2021.

            – Edge O. Erin

“Based on my experience working with her, I’ll be using her for all my future editing needs. The one on one experience without the constant pressuring for things right now was nice and she was more than accommodating with my needs to communicate back and forth more than most editors have the patience for. It’s rare to find a good editor who is also genuinely a good person as well. I’d give 6 stars if they’d let me.”

            – Jesse Vail
