Jim made everything about the editing process easy. He set an ambitious timeline for completion, and met it. His criticisms are spot on. He will improve your writing.Mar 12, 2018Verified
I recently worked with Jim for the first time and I must say I think he is fantastic! He is thorough, timely and offers great feedback. I have already decided to work with him on my next project. I highly recommend him!Apr 10, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Some editors charge by the page, which can result in some inequities. I charge by the word instead. At the moment, my fee is $.006 per word. As an example, a 50,000 word manuscript would cost $300. I also offer discounts for repeat clients.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After choosing me as editor, the author submits a manuscript to me either as an attachment through Thumbtack or directly to my email. I print the manuscript and make the edits manually. I then return the completed edits with a full report, including recommendations for publishing. I'm also available afterward for follow-up and advice (no charge). I maintain contact with the author throughout the process.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I was originally an English major in college before switching to Business Management. As a bank vice president, I headed a marketing and business development department. I also served as editor of the internal publications of two large banks. Twenty years as editor of newsletters for a community service group brought numerous awards.
