Resting Life Editing


Your message: clearly communicated

As a writer, you want your content to be professionally presented and your message to be clearly communicated. Grammatical errors, typos, or imprecise wordings can significantly detract from the impact of a book or article. Resting Life Editing delivers just what every writer needs: flawless content in professional format. I offer quality editing, copyediting, proofreading, and beta reading services at affordable prices.

I don’t just edit. I help you become a better writer to improve your own self-editing. No matter what stage your book is in, my services will fit your needs. Whether you desire light editing, deep editing, pre-publication editing, content editing, copyediting, proofreading, or beta reading, I will help your work shine.

As a thorough editor, I am committed to helping your writing be the best it can be. I specialize in bringing your writing to professional levels through proofreading and editing for content, grammar, word choice, style, and formatting. I am willing to work with you and to allow you as the writer to be the final authority on your writing.

I am flexible and will deliver your work to you on time every time. I am committed to excellence, integrity, professionalism, and honesty. My comprehensive knowledge of English grammar and style will bring your book or article to professional standards.

I specialize in Christian fiction and non-fiction but will consider a wide variety of literature, articles, web content, sermons, speeches, screenwriting, and more. I also beta read books, give comments and analysis, and review books. I reserve the right to reject any manuscript for any reason.

When editing digital content, I use the “Track Changes” feature of Microsoft Word 2010 so that you can always see the changes I had made and accept or reject them as you desire. I also leave comments in the document to let you know my thoughts on the content and to indicate larger changes or rewrites necessary. If you desire recurrent edits, I will repeat the process until the piece meets your satisfaction. Furthermore, I will provide you with a comprehensive analysis of your book or piece from an editor’s perspective – something many editors do not offer.

I edit content for the following:

  • Typographical errors
  • Grammatical errors
  • Spelling errors
  • Development
  • Formatting
  • Awkward transitions
  • Redundancies
  • Biased language/stereotyping
  • Wordiness
  • Clarity
  • Confusing phrasing
  • Content
  • Cohesiveness


Rates: $5.00 per 1,000 words for a standard edit that includes copyediting and proofreading. If you need a specialized edit, content editing, or only part of the package, I’m happy to discuss it with you and adjust the rate to match your needs.
