    Jaime has not finished the project as of this post. Thus far, she is professional, helpful, offers ideas and is straightforward, I have no complaints; actually, I am pleased with what I have experienced the past two days since the hire. I would willingly recommend her to others.

    I hired Jaime to be my writing coach as I work through writing a book. I sent a monthly goal and send in my work by each deadline, then she sends me in-depth, written feedback. Jaime has been extremely encouraging and helpful. She's provided useful feedback so far and it really helps to have someone who can hold me accountable to my work, while also understanding the goals I am trying to accomplish. I highly recommend her services and am excited to keep moving forward.

About this pro

I offer outstanding proofreading, editing, and writing services to a wide variety of clients, including novelists, academics, tech entrepreneurs, nonprofits, ad firms, and small business owners. A former copyeditor for newspapers and magazines, I offer precise and thorough feedback, and I excel at working under deadlines. Do you need help with a writing project? I can edit your existing written materials or draft engaging new content – just message me about your latest project, and we can begin discussing the details. I love helping my clients hone their written work to reach their personal and business goals. It's deeply satisfying for me to see written work that I've collaborated on make a significant difference to my clients – whether that means they've landed a new contract or won a grant or published a debut book.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Prices vary depending on the project, but I generally charge $50/hr for editing and writing projects.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I typically have an introductory meeting/phone conversation with a new client in which we discuss their project, goals, and editing/writing needs. Once we're in sync about the project, I'll typically take on an initial job (for example, editing the first two chapters of a novel or creating 2–3 blog posts). This allows the client to see a sample of my work and to evaluate whether we're a good fit before committing to the larger project (say, editing an entire novel or writing a series of blog posts for a website).
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I earned a B.A. in English from Tulane University and an M.A. in Creative Writing from The University of Texas at Austin. I've edited for two literary journals, one newspaper, and one nationally distributed magazine. I've also assisted authors in a variety of genres in the development, writing, and editing of their books.
