Editing for Author-preneurs

Bringing you deep, detailed, practical editing and proofreading, with a focus on wellness, self-development, creative and sustainability projects.

Tell your story, your way, to your audience.

Bring your work and your word to the world

You’ve captured the right messages in your writing but you suspect know for sure your words need some tweaking and refining.

The Ink Rat offers a personalised writing and editing service, tailored to suit your needs, whether it’s detailed involvement or light-touch finessing.

Transform your spoken words (or written materials) into structured documents including books, case studies and presentations.

If you’ve started the work already, the Ink Rat can support you with developmental feedback, copy-editing, or detailed proofreading.

As you build your author platform, the Ink Rat can support you further with copywriting, content and other business and marketing support.

Editing Services

Be an expert writer by working with a writing expert

You’re an expert in a unique area and you want to share what you know.

However, you don’t have a lot of time to write, might not be trained to write, or you just need an objective eye to enhance what you’ve already written.

The editing process

Discovery Call

Discovery call

Let’s discuss your project. What genre and audience are you aiming for? How much you have written to date (if anything!)? What kind of editing support do you require?

Sample Edit

Sample edit

I prefer to edit a sample of the manuscript, say 1,000-2,000 words, before providing a quote. This ensures I give you an accurate quote based on what the work requires and gives you a no-risk opportunity to make sure my editing style meets your standards.

Pricing and Proposal

Pricing and proposal

The price range for editing is between 3c and 12c per word ($30-$120 per 1000 words), depending on whether a deep edit is required (including ghostwriting) or a proofread before publication. I confirm the project price to you, excluding the sample edit provided. 

The editing process

The editing process

You receive two rounds of edits. This allows us to resolve any questions on style and content that arise during the first edit. You receive:

  • A track-changed manuscript
  • A clean version of the same manuscript
  • A report of observations, questions and next steps
  • Regular updates if the project takes longer than a week
Get ready to publish

Getting ready for publication

Once your manuscript is finalised, as a separate project, I can support you to find a publisher and market your book to your readers.

Getting started is easy

The Ink Rat works with you to create tailored, engaging, useful copy and content that transforms your expertise into a compelling narrative.
