Introduction: Hi, I'm Sarah. I started freelance ghostwriting and editing in 2018. In 2021 I turned my side hustle into a full-time endeavor. Developmental editing is my strength as an editor, and I am also adept at proofreading, copyediting, and line editing. My goal for projects I take on is to make the writing stronger and more concise; I do this by mitigating adverbs, adjectives, and other superfluous wording. For writing projects, I am a thorough researcher and enjoy learning about new topics for written tasks. I am knowledgeable in a plethora of subjects, and I am able to write intelligibly about almost anything. My strongest subjects are faith, mental health, and finance. As a side hustle, I enjoy administrative assistant work. I am a fast and efficient worker. I love finding ways to automate processes for quick turnaround times.

To say the least, Sarah took on a mess when editing my book. I’m a creative and not an avid reader, sad to say. She brightened my book with a broader vocabulary, eliminated unnecessary scenes, changed redundant sentence structures, fact checked, and line edited. Because of her I am now more than an author of a book, I am a writer and it’s because of Sarah. Thank you Sarah.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I can charge by word or by hour. I want to be fair in my pricing, and I am open to negotiation.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I do a free sample edit to see if we are a good fit, and then I will go from there.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I do not have any formal training, but I have been proofreading and editing papers since high school. In 2017, I completed several online creative writing courses through coursera.com. I utilize the lessons I learned in those classes in my editing and writing, whether it is fiction or nonfiction. I also read between 40 and 60 books a year. I read a mix of fiction and nonfiction, and I am well versed in what makes a book readable and enjoyable for the end user.
