Editing for Indie Authors
Hi, I'm Hayley and I am proud to offer affordable, budget-friendly editing services for indie authors on a budget.
I'm a native English speaker with 7+ years of experience in editing and copywriting. I'm most comfortable with reading/editing books in the following genres:
Paranormal/Fantasy Romance (all spice levels)
Contemporary Romance (all spice levels)
Don't write in those genres? Don't worry! I'm more than happy to take a look at your novel no matter what the genre is, though I will ask that you disclose any potentially disturbing or triggering content that may be in your book. I reserve the right to decline the project if I feel it isn't right for me.
Take a look at the services below, then fill out the form on the appropriate page to get started, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're confident in your writing but are concerned about grammar mistakes, typos, or inconsistencies, this is the best option for you.
If you think your writing needs an extra boost in style, structure, word choice, flow, or organization, then line editing is for you!
This package is best suited for rough first drafts that require heavy editing. After my initial edit, you can make revisions and send it back to me for another round of editing - twice!
I require 1,000-word editing samples for all prospective clients to best determine if we are a good fit to work together. Sample edits are FREE and turnaround time is 2-4 days.
“Hayley is absolutely magical! She keeps the essence and tone of your book, giving amazing feedback and line edits. Highly recommend working with her if you’re looking to take your book to the next level."
"Hayley did a great job. She delivered the finished doc in a timely manner and had great communication. I really enjoyed working with her."
"I'd highly recommend Hayley anyone looking to get their novel polished. She was flexible and very thorough. I can't wait to hire her again!"
It brings me such joy to help indie authors get their books ready for publication.
See below for just a few of the published books I've edited.
I reference the Chicago Manual of Style (17th edition) and Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary (11th edition) for all my edits.
All my edits are made via tracked changes in Microsoft Word or Google Docs. Whether or not to accept these changes is entirely up to you - it's your book.
I require a deposit and a signed contract to confirm your booking. The deposit is non-refundable and will count toward your final balance.
All payments will be made via PayPal. Full payment must be received before final files are returned.
