Editing Services

Important update: I’ve been getting a lot of queries lately. I occasionally find these queries in my spam folder, but I rarely look for them there. I’m unlikely to take new clients at this point unless you have a specific reference (i.e. I might do it as a favor for a friend of a friend.) I’m busy; that’s the long and short of it. Also, I’m sorry if you queried me and I didn’t respond. The spam folder is a problem I don’t have the time to deal with.

Greetings! I’m excited you found your way to my blog. I love working with authors to develop their books, from comprehensive editing all the way through proofing and formatting. I’ve edited and formatted most genres: nonfiction, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, romance, literary, and even poetry. If you’d like to contact me for any or all of the services listed below, email me at jdomschot at msn dot com.

Manuscript Services
Comprehensive Edit $.01 per word
Proofread $.005 per word
$.0032 per word*

* Formatting prices will increase if the book contains numerous pictures, annotations, tables, etc. Also, I will add $50 to the cost of an ebook if the text is over 150,000 words.

This is my pricing system as of 7/9/2018. If you are a client I’ve worked with in the past, I’m willing to go with the pricing system I used for your last book (within reason, obviously — let’s talk about it). If you would like to purchase multiple services, I’m willing to negotiate package prices.



  1. Hi Jill,

    How fun to find your blog tonight! Somehow, my search for information on 17th century men’s hats led me here… working on a historical fiction…

    How dandy to encounter you–a freelance author/editor!
    I wish you well–your blog is intriguing & engaging. Perhaps we’ll be in touch sometime?

    Warmest regards,

    Sarah M. Eschweiler

    1. I’m glad to hear you’re writing historical fiction set in the 17th C. I hope I get to read it some day. The Romantic and Victorian eras seem to be the most popular in the publishing world. đŸ™‚

  2. Dear Jill,
    I’m so glad that I have visited your blog. I’ve started writing poetry and would like you to edit them for me.

    I’ve never written poems before and have never had a lesson on poetry. I just look at poems and learn from them.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Sincere regards
