Deborah offered me the punctual services I needed in order to meet a deadline. She brings experience, ideas, and publishing knowledge to the table, and responds to requests or inquiries in a timely fashion. Recommended.Jul 18, 2018Verified
She is excellent. Very responsive and very kind. I really enjoyed working with her. She did an excellent job in editing my manuscript for my upcoming book. My manuscript is around 20,000 words and she finished in less than two days.May 26, 2018VerifiedDeborah D.'s reply
Thank you Adriana, and best of luck with the book!
I'm delighted with Deborah's work. She's given me precisely what I hoped for in seeking an intelligent, outside perspective on my novel. Her responses are insightful, nuanced, and sometimes surprising--nudging me to see my story in a new way. Excellent choice in an editor. Well-priced, too.Mar 27, 2018Verified

Payment methods accepted
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My editing services including, grammar, spelling and punctation, ranges from $20-$30/hr. If you’d like a more in-depth development editing including, text vocabulary, sentence structure, ordering, etc, the price would come to $30/hr. If your budget doesn't allow for my fee, I am open to payment plans. Once I have your word count and sample pages I can give you a more accurate price and timeline estimate.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I first request 3-5 sample pages so that I can better determine an accurate price point, get a sense for voice of the piece, and make sure I understand your concerns and goals. Once I have received a 50% deposit, I will edit your piece with the program Track Changes and receive the other half of the payment once the manuscript is returned.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Masters of Creative Writing, I have written 7 books and taught at multiple universities and colleges. I also make a lot of time to read novels, memoirs, and literary articles to make sure I am staying on top of writing and trends and keeping my skills share.
