Cindy was my editor for my first self-published book, "Ride On!" and she has helped me tremendously on making my story come alive. Since I am not a writer by trade, she worked with me on skills I needed to improve, offered many suggestions, and mostly spent time with me. I highly recommend her for your writing and editing purposes.Jun 23, 2014
Cindy O'Hara is a talented writer, deadline-oriented and very capable of covering any subject in detail. She served as a freelance writer for a national construction industry magazine and quickly learned the industry's issues and terminology. Her work is detail-oriented, interesting and solid.Jun 16, 2014
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is fairly simple: I like to charge $30/hour, however, I have been known to charge less or receive more. The running theme here is that I do my best to work within a client's budget. As an example, (depending on how heavy handed editing needs to be), it takes approximately one hour to edit four pages. That means, that 50 pages of editing would cost approximately $375.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I went to college to become the next F. Lee Bailey, one of the most notable defense lawyers our country has produced. However, as flashy and glamorous as television makes the courtroom look (and it does), it does not compare to the amount of tedious and boring work that goes into those few weeks in the courtroom. When I started receiving C's and D's in what was then my major, I decided that perhaps law was not for me. I stumbled my way into a journalism 101 class, and I was hooked. It felt like I had come home. I had always been an avid reader, and I loved language. It was the perfect mix for me.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I will do anything a client needs to better serve their story or product including, but not limited to, proofreading, light editing, heavy handed editing (think red marks all over grade school papers), and make suggestions on flow, style, and content.
