Editing Services

General Information

As an author of any type of content, you have done the hard work. So first, congratulations! You did it! Now all you need is a guide, a trusted adviser, to help smooth out any potential issues. I act as that guide—a beacon—building a trusting partnership with you through kindly worded queries, astute suggestions, and changes that preserve your voice.

Instead of paying for multiple editors, you can hire me for your substantive, line, and copyediting needs in one packaged deal, saving you time and money. My package deal includes several editorial rounds, so I can focus in on every detail while also addressing big-picture issues.

Let me guide your writing by offering astute suggestions to enhance your organization, content, sentence structure, and/or word choice; by correcting grammar, usage, and punctuation errors; by ensuring consistency; and by offering valuable comments from the viewpoint of your prospective readers.

My credentials

  • Completed professional development courses (see course list)
  • Earned my bachelor's in English education

  • Graded copious amounts of students' essays during my eight-year teaching career

Through voraciously reading fiction and lurking and contributing to grammar and punctuation forums, I have acquired a meticulous attention to detail while also considering the big picture.

Editing services I offer

  • Light Copyediting: fixing errors with grammar, usage, punctuation, and style consistency.
  • Copyediting: A light copeydit plus making changes to sentence structure and word choice, ensuring your language is clear, fluid, and pleasurable to read.

  • Substantive editing (also known as developmental): suggesting and making changes to content, organization, and style—ensuring clear, coherent delivery.

Reviews

5 stars

Katie Chambers did an excellent job editing my book, the Parris Island Planner.I would recommend her to anyone who wants a polished book ready for publication. She quoted a price with delivery date and stuck to our schedule. My book is so much better because of her talents.
