Crab Editing

Professional Editing & 
Proofreading Services
For Indie Authors



Proofreading is the most basic package I offer. With this, I will check your final draft for grammar and punctuation mistakes before being sent for publication. 

The copy edit is a more extensive proofread, which includes not only a check of grammar and punctuation, but also overall plot and character consistency.

Please note: I do not provide developmental editing services. 

The line edit is the most in-depth package I offer. During a line edit, I will check for extraneous and overused words and sentences, run-on sentences, and redundancies. I will also check for dialogue or paragraphs that can be tightened or polished, scenes where the action or meaning is confusing, and transitions that can be improved. Additionally, I will check word/phrase meaning, syntax, narrative digressions, and pacing of passages. This line edit will improve the overall flow and presentation of your words.

Why am I so inexpensive compared to other editors?

At my core, I believe in supporting the indie author community. It is my passion that independently and self-published authors have access to professional resources that they may not be able to afford otherwise. Therefore, I keep my prices low with them in mind.
