If you need a professional editor with years of experience, an eagle eye for detail, respect for your hard work, and knowledge of grammar and style guides, you've come to the right place.

I offer a free sample edit on 1,000 words and tailor my rate based on the edits needed. You will get to experience the process and see if we are a good fit.

My rates are based on the sample edit and typically range from $0.015 to $0.025 per word ($15 to $25 per 1,000 words). Click here to see how that compares to industry standards.

Each author gets personal treatment at Maine Woods Editing. I will ask about your style preferences (from the Oxford comma and formatting to pronoun usage) and any problem areas you'd like me to especially pay attention to (overused words, timeline inconsistencies). Your manuscript will get two reads, and I'll craft a customized style sheet that lists character names and descriptions, places, timeline events, and spellings specific to your book, ensuring consistency within this book and across a series. As I'm editing, I'll leave comments explaining grammar and writing rules, which you can apply to future books, and I'll point out sentences and scenes that shine.

Do you have a smallish project without a firm deadline? Contact me about fitting it in around the larger manuscripts in my schedule.
