    Working with Steffy has not only a good experience, but also one of learning on how to write better. I would recommend her to anyone who desires an excellent editor.

    For this editorial project, Thumbtack provided such excellent candidates at great prices that I ended up hiring 2 of the 5 candidates. There was a lot of detailed repetitive information, so having 2 sets of eyes edit my dyslexically written project was a big plus. I have plans to hire Stephanie AGAIN because she did such a great job :)

    About this pro

    I make a point of really understanding what my clients what to achieve and then, once working on a project, giving feedback on the whole as well as the little details. I communicate well along the way and enjoy being on the journey of bringing a book baby into the world! I love words and I love finding out about peoples' stories. I'd love to hear yours!

      Q & A

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        I base my quotes on a free sample edit of a few pages - this, alongside a discussion with the client, gives me an indication of the level of editing required. I work out the total based on the number of words overall, 250-word manuscript pages and my hourly rate. I am clear up front with a fixed quote and ask for a deposit to start. I am flexible with payment plans, depending on the length of the project.
      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        I speak with a new client either on the phone, via Skype or in person and get a good idea of what they are wanting to achieve overall and specific services they want. We then discuss timeframe and budget. I ask for a deposit to start working and away we go! For a larger project (like a book) I check in every few days with questions and comments so that it becomes a very collaborative exercise.
      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
        I originally studied English Literature at university before detouring into a career of advertising and marketing, then development work. Over 20 years writing has been a key part of my roles, and since 2012 I have focussed on writing and copyediting exclusively. It's what I love to do, and I believe I'm good at it.
