1 hire on Thumbtack
Hannah is an excellent editor. She answered all my questions about my work in progress and added insight of her own, giving me feedback on issues I didn't even think needed to be addressed. My book will be infinitely better because of her input. I am very grateful to her. Highly recommend.May 10, 2016

Hannah copy edited out young adult book as well as gave us overall notes on what would and wouldn't work within the publishing world. She even gave us homework and a book list to read! She's meticulous and will catch things you never thought about with a solution in mind.Jun 2, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing varies based on how extensive the request is. For editing, cost will vary if it's per page or per hour. For consulting on websites or social media, I can charge an hourly rate or a flat fee, again depending on the goals of your project. When you have more specific needs, I will probably charge a flat rate. For more exploratory projects (e.g. "I need some new content for my website"), I will most likely work hourly. When I give you a quote, I'll try to pre-assess what would make the most sense for your project, so it helps to give me as many details as possible as to what you would like to get out of our partnership! I generally provide one example page of text or content, and then after approval I work on the full project. If at that point it seems that our visions do not align, I charge a 50% kill fee.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I regularly take classes and trainings in a variety of areas, not just writing and editing. Recently I became certified as an indoor cycling instructor!
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've been a writer for as long as I've been a reader - possibly even longer, since I dictated stories to adults before I knew how to hold a pen. Becoming a librarian took a combination of finding a master's degree program that also offered a second master's in library science, plus reading a great book about librarians, and knowing that it would put me into an environment that had an abundance of books and other media, which I love! It's allowed me to be passionate, critical, and creative when it comes to books and texts.
