Carol Tietsworth

I have been proofreading and editing for some time now, and I keep my fees lower than the norm because I know authors typically have to budget for services. My low fees are a stress reliever. I also line-edit part-time for two publishing houses.

I stay in email contact with my authors during the editing process and send any questions I have to them, so our relationship stays true and current. In addition to the editing, I often make suggestions, (in parentheses) to clarify a thought or passage. These suggestions are merely that, and not etched in stone.

I charge .003/word for proofreading, or $30.00 per 10,000 words and .004/word for editing, or $40.00 per 10,000 words. If I contract for editing I throw in the proofreading for free, as I'm already in there. Contact me at with your word count for a quote. Or check out my Facebook page, Editing by Carol Tietsworth.

I offer copy and line editing, and if contracted to do these things I throw in the proofreading as I'm already in there. First 500 words as a free sample.
.004/word for editing, .003/word for only proofreading.
