Looking for someone to edit your book? You’ve come to the right place!
My name is Lindsey Anderson, and I’m a freelance editor. I work primarily on novels, memoirs, and textbooks, but I’m also happy to edit papers, dissertations, and scholarly articles.
I charge my clients .0075 cents per word for a basic copyedit and 1 cent per word for a line-by-line edit. For .0125 cents per word, I also offer authors a comprehensive developmental edit.
My rates are considerably lower than most of my competitors, for a couple of reasons:
I’m also confident that I’m able to out-perform my competition. I do more than just catch comma splices and split infinitives. I dig into each of my manuscripts, looking for plot holes, passive language, flat characters, and clichés—just about anything that could prevent a good book or paper from being great.

Send me a copy of your manuscript. I’ll perform a line-by-line copyedit of a portion of the text, free of charge, and send it back to you. If you aren’t 100% satisfied with the results, you don’t have to pay me a cent, and you can send your manuscript to another editor.

If you’d like to get a better sense of my personal writing/editing style and areas of specialization (I know a great deal about art and architecture, for instance), feel free to check out Lindsey Anderson Writes, a blog I set up to show clients examples of my own work. I’m obviously a professional editor, not a writer, but I enjoy writing articles for newspapers and magazines from time to time, and I think they’ll give you a good indication of my skills and interests.

Who am I, and why should you hire me?
I worked as a copyeditor and in-house editor at a publishing company for three years before deciding to go solo.
Now I offer my editing services directly to authors in need of my expertise.
