I charge 2.3 cents per word and usually proofread and edit your document in 48 hours or less.
(You really shouldn’t choose your editor based solely on price, but I know it’s a factor, and one that many authors look at first.)
What do you get for that?
- Easy to understand
- Impossible to misunderstand
When you write, that’s what you want. With Michael Edits, that’s what you get.
Great writing is like a window pane. Let Michael Edits be your Windex.
Proofreading, in my mind, is all that “oops” stuff that makes you cringe after you hit “send” or spend hundreds or thousands to print a bunch of pretty brochures or other literature.
Editing ensures that the reader knows what you’re talking about, without ever having to read the same sentence twice or consult anything except your document.
Whenever I review your document, I provide both editing and proofreading, and I demand nothing less than perfection.
- Bids, proposals and tenders
But is that all I’ve edited and proofread? Oh no. From 1991 through 1999 I was the in-house editor for Eastern Instruments, until I left Eastern Instruments in 1999 to form Michael Edits. Tens of millions of words. If pressed to name a few more specialties, they would be:
- Website Content Review
- Marketing Communications
- Promotional Material
- Executive Coaching
- Business Manuals
- Life Coaching
- Press Releases
- Technical Manuals and Spec Sheets (how I began)
But promising too much is just too vague, isn’t it? Here are a few authors I’ve enjoyed long-term relationships with. I hope you see someone who reminds you of what you do.
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If I know I’m a perfect fit for what you’ve got, I’ll quote you a firm price and delivery time. If I’m not a perfect fit, I’ll recommend another proofreader or editor who is. Either way, we all win.
P.S. I’m in Charlotte, North Carolina, but you don’t have to be. We’ve got the Internet.
P.P.S. If you’re panic-stricken because your calculator’s giving you a price over $1000, this page might be of interest to you.
