Looking for an editor? You’ve come to the right place. Diane Tibert is now accepting new clients for 2016.
Diane’s goal when editing is to keep the style of the writer and not transform it into her own style. She edits for clarity, so readers comprehend sentences the first time they are read. At times, she rearranges phrases within a sentence to achieve this, but she does her best to keep the words used by the writer.
Diane edits Canadian and American English, and a combination of both.
Prospective clients may send 300 words of their manuscript for me to edit, so they can get an idea of how I work.
This service includes editing for typos, grammar, spelling, punctuation, hyphens, capitalisation, missing words, repetition and sentence/paragraph structure. It also targets correct word usage (perhaps granite was used instead granted: Her assistance was taken for granite.), redundancies (free gift) and consistency. Manuscripts are read twice.
$2.50 a page (formatted to 12 point, Times New Roman font, 8.5 inches x 11 inches page with one inch margins, double space; approximately 310 words per page).
Minimum: $60.00 per project
Content Edit and Beta Service
This is NOT a proofreading service. This service includes a thorough read of the story with comments on characters, dialogue, point of view, pacing, plot and overall consistency. Comments will include where the story can be improved, what works and what doesn’t work.
$1.50 a page (formatted to 12 point, Times New Roman font, 8.5 inches x 11 inches page with one inch margins, double space; approximately 310 words per page).

Half of the payment is due when the project begins. The remaining balance is due before the final edits are delivered. Final edits will be delivered within 24 hours (usually within 12 hours) of final payment. Payment can be made through PayPal or eBank transfer.
Prices are in Canadian currency. At this time, taxes are not charged.
Manuscripts are priced according to their originally submitted page count.
Before service begin, the author is responsible for completing the style sheet to ensure their unique style is considered when editing.
The copyright of the manuscript remains with the author. The manuscript will NOT be shared—in full or in part—outside the work space.
I am only human. Although I strive for 100% accuracy, mistakes may occur. The responsibility of the final product remains with the author.
Receipts are provided.
