As an author myself,
I’m dedicated to preserving your voice. I have a Bachelor’s
in English and am passionate about getting it right.
I’ll double-check your spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
Your manuscript should be “clean” before I see it.
This stage is the last inspection before you send your book
out into the world.
Edit: I’ll check grammar, punctuation,
clarity, unnecessary words, awkward sentence structure, point
of view, etc. This is the nitty gritty level.
Fact checking is the author’s job. I’ll assume the
author has done her research.
I offer a complimentary
sample edit/proof (5 pages).
Comprehensive Edit: This is the big
picture where I address plot, setting, characterization, and
other large-scale problems. It’s not a line/copy edit.
time depends on your needs and my schedule. All work is confidential.
For a limited time, I’m discounting prices
to build my business:
- Proofreading: $60-$115 for 40,000-75,000 word ms
- Copy/Line editing: $120-$225 for 40,000-75,000 word
- Comprehensive editing: $175-$280 for 40,000-75,000

Kelly did an amazing job with my book, Devil May Care.
It's in the middle of a series and she jumped in with both feet.
She did a comprehensive edit with attention to detail. In addition
to proofreading, she helped me with timelines, character voice,
and many other excellent suggestions. I will be utilizing her
skills for future Four Horsemen books!
Rayne, Devil May Care
Kelly is an excellent and sharp-eyed proofreader. Her help in
preparing several of my novels for reissue was invaluable. I
appreciate her efficiency and precision in helping me make available
to the reader the best and most readable books possible.

Kelly is an excellent writer herself. She is an expert who knows
good writing. Whether your manuscript needs help in composition,
grammar or spelling, plot, character or style, you can trust
her to hone in on your problem areas in your work and make them
stronger. She will work with you to give you a salable manuscript.
With great skill, she shaped and polished my latest work of
fiction. I trust Megan with everything I write. She's the best.

working with my traditional editors, I was impressed with the
freelance content editing I received from Megan at MK Books
Editing on my soon-to-be-released Wild Hearts, Book
One of the Castleview series. Not only did she help me work
through goal and motivation problems, she was able to help me
with grammar and sentence structure issues.
