Need an Editor?

Let Me Help

I provide editing services for individuals and small businesses at reasonable rates.  If you are a self-publishing author, small press publisher, indie role-playing game writer/designer,  I would love to help you with your next project.  Good editing can make the difference between a good reader response, and a great one.

As an editor, my priority is to help your work shine.  I approach every editing job with enthusiasm and respect; I think those two things are key to working with any writer’s creation.  As an editor I provide two levels of service: Proofreading and Copyediting.

Proofreading (priced at [word count x .004] dollars)

  • Punctuation, spelling, and grammar
  • Typographical Errors
  • Formatting consistency
  • Correct verbage
  • Subject-verb agreement
  • Sentence fragments and run-on sentences
  • Shifting verb tense

Copyediting (priced at [word count x .0065] dollars)

  • includes proofreading, above
  • plot, character, and time-line consistency
  • voice
  • coherency and flow
  • suggestions on how to rework troubled areas and dialogue

I would prefer to receive documents electronically, in either .doc/.docx or .rtf (rich-text format), though I can work from hard-copy if you require.  In the case of hard-copy, the client is responsible for the cost of document shipping.

For All Work

Work commences when we have agreed on the scope and terms; I will provide a work-order based on our agreement.  Once a signed copy of the work-order is scanned back to me I will begin work.  When I have finished I will send back the completed work along with an invoice.  Unless otherwise agreed upon, payment is due upon completion.  I will accept certified cheques or money orders through the mail, but I prefer PayPal; it is secure and convenient to use.  If those options are not available to you, please let me know prior to work commencing, and we can try to find another payment option.

Registered charities and not-for-profits receive a 20% discount on all work done.

If you have any questions regarding my services or wish to discuss a project, please email me at brent.jans(at)gmail.com.  I look forward to helping you with your next project!
