Editing 

I offer a variety of edits, including free sample edits for excerpts with 2000 words or less. All edits will be delivered by sending you an annotated version of the manuscript you sent me and a PDF summary of all my edits. I accept all genres in the formats .doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt, .odt, .epub and .mobi.
