Sample Line & Copy edit

Benefits of a sample edit...

You want to hire an editor but it's important to you to see if you'd work well together first before committing to a full copy & line edit. 

With a sample edit, you get to experience my editing process firsthand, for free. 

The sample edit is just a scaled-down version of the real thing, so you can get a feel for me and see if I'm someone you want to work with. 

Sample edits also benefit the editor. It allows me to see the scope of your work so I can estimate how long it will take me more accurately. And it also allows me to see if my services are a good fit for your story. 

This is what you'll get...

  • I'll edit 1,000 words of your story for free. The areas I'll be checking are:

    • Awkward phrasing

    • Dialogue issues

    • punctuation

    • hyphenation

    • capitalization

    • told vs show

    • use of verb tense

  • I provide guidance on which type of editing would best serve your story and whether I think we'd be a good fit.
