Tia Ross EditorialI offer two services for writers of fiction, nonfiction and scripts.


For writers needing assistance that focuses on grammar, word usage, phrasing, organization, flow and clarity as well as spelling, punctuation, numerals, capitalization and all other mechanics, my editing service is your solution. This service addresses inconsistencies, structural flaws, gaps in logic, redundancies and dialogue errors (such as faulty tags and formatting) while enhancing your distinct style and unique voice.


If you already know whether you need light, moderate or heavy editing and would like a general "ballpark" estimate, you may use the following word count rates. Although the estimate I supply after I review your material will not be calculated by a per-word formula, you can use this to get an approximate cost.

Multiple the rate below by your word count:

Copyediting: $0.02/word
Light to moderate line editing: $0.03/word
Heavy line editing: $0.04/word

For more information on my estimate process, visit Frequently Asked Questions. If you are in need of developmental editing, contact me for referrals.


Proofreading occurs after text has been copyedited and eliminates any remaining typos, spelling, punctuation, capitalization, numerals, formatting and grammatical errors. For details, see Proofreading.
