Angela Trusty

I help you find the perfect words so your message can impact readers in just the way you want. Respecting all of your words, I suggest edits that seek to preserve your original voice. I’ll never change your words; I will only suggest changes for you to consider. I have focused on working with self-publishing authors of both fiction and non-fiction.

Comprehensive Editing

Comprehensive editing should happen after at least one round of self-editing has been done. This is a deep and complete edit of your manuscript. It addresses flow, structure, clarity, word choice, consistency, dialogue, etc.

$0.05 per word


Proofreading should happen after all other editing of your manuscript is completed. No suggestions for content changes will be made. A proofread is a final check for errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, and typos.

How it works

  • Use the form below to tell us about your manuscript.
  • After we talk via email, you will submit the first 1000 words of your manuscript; and I will edit it at no charge, so you can be sure my editing style suits you before moving on.
  • Once we agree on an editing schedule, I will expect half of the total fee to be paid before editing begins on the rest of your manuscript.
  • I will notify you upon completion and return your fully edited manuscript upon receipt of payment of the balance due.
