Writing and Editing Services
I'm in awe of Amanda's talent, hard work and dedication. I'm also so happy and thankful she was available to edit and proofread my novella. She's genuine, professional, kind, caring and has so much patience. She's everything that I could have ever hoped to find in an editor all wrapped into one. I'm a lucky girl, I only wish that I would have had found her sooner. She really took the time to listen and understand exactly what I needed. She made suggestions and comments that were necessary in my writing to help me communicate my message. She really appreciates the written word. She's an expert in her field and lucky for us, she has her own business. :)Dec 23, 2015Verified

Mandy is Da'Bomb! I am so very pleased with the editorial feedback I received and the degree of intelligence and amount of skill and insight which Mandy invested into the project I sent to her. I have had a numbrer of people give me feedback during the past several months and I now have found *the* editor to whom I will be sending future copy. Thank you Mandy! Highly recommended!

Mandy, was great to work with she shared a lot of information with me about editing and it helped me to become a better editor. She also gave me some critical advice on flaws in my writing that could possibly bring up a future lawsuit and she gave me other helpful advice that would allow a reader to enjoy my novel more. She was willing to work within my budget making it fair for the both of us. She also said that she is willing to help me in the future with other endeavors and projects. I'm looking forward to a continued relationship with Mandy.Dec 12, 2015Red Ink Enthusiast's reply

Donna, thank you for this thorough and kind review. I enjoyed working with you.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Editing services are $30/hour and include both copy edits (grammar, punctuation, mechanics) and line edits (content-related changes and suggestions to enhance coherence, consistency, and meaning). Copywriting services are $45/hour and include the creation of original material written by me based upon your list of must-have information. Proofreading services are $15/hour and include a thorough review for grammar, mechanics, and overall meaning/usefulness of the text. You will receive commentary on the overall text, but it is a general review in comparison to the line-by-line feedback given during editing. After hiring, all online and telephone consultation time is billed at the same rate as the service contracted. Prices are negotiable with combinations and subsets of services (e.g., proofreading with minor edits or proofreading with copywriting at the weak spots). A contract will be signed by both parties designated the work to be completed and the hourly rate. I do not provide fact-checking services. Please ensure all technical-, trade-, and research-specific materials are correct prior to my involvement in the project.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In October 2014 I completed my Master's degree in English and Creative Writing. I also earned a TESOL certification in teaching English as a Second Language, separate of my university studies. I have over three years of experience providing writing services and one year of experience in teaching college level composition (English 111 and 112).
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I began by reading over documents for friends and family, serving as a second or third set of eyes to make sure all was well before submittal for school, work, and other projects. It evolved into an ideal way to earn money while using pre-existing interests. As I became further educated, the value of my input increased. I began a formally licensed business in 2013.
