I offer editorial services for acupuncturists writing articles and books. You can chose from an ala carte menu of services that can help you with exactly what you need.
I provide full line editing services. Full line editing means I’ll read your book, suggest changes and then you can implement them. This may mean you rewrite sections to get them to flow better. I’ll re-read those areas. We’ll also talk about whether the changes I think should be made will change the meaning of your work. This often requires that I read your manuscript two or three times.
Copy-editing means I’ll go through and help you correct punctuation, grammar and spelling errors. I’ll also let you know when something doesn’t make sense. Maybe you forgot a word. I’ll make suggestions for that. This is a one time read through so manuscripts that are copy edited should be further along in the writing process.
- Full Line Editing: $35/hour with a 1 hour minimum. I can do about 10-25 pages per hour depending upon your manuscript.
- Copy Editing: $30/hour with a 1 hour minimum. I can typically do 15-20 pages per depending upon your manuscript.
- Short E-books: Text only, no more than two images/tables plus cover files, less than 20,000 words $100.00.
- Longer e-books: Text only, no more than two images/tables plus cover files, over 20,000 words but less than 100,000 words $200.00
- E-books including many images: $50/hour. Please contact me for estimates on the time it can take.

I can do very simple covers with basic fonts for an additional $50 if you provide your own image.
If you need a graphic designer to design your cover, I highly recommend Debbie at Glogirly Design. She does a lot of pet blogger art, but she’s a professional graphic designer and does a variety of book cover designs. Her prices are very reasonable.
Website Design and Technical Assistance
I do very little full design any longer. I am, however, available for assistance.
Technical assistance is $50/hour charged in 10 minute increments or a $20 minimum (for one time assistance).
