Welcome, Authors!

Are you looking for an editor? Perhaps you are getting ready to submit your manuscript to agents and are interested in obtaining a professional copyedit before you send it out? Or maybe you have just finished your first draft and need some developmental editing to refine your work before moving onto your next draft? Or perhaps you are a self-publishing author in need of a professional copyedit or proofread before submitting your final book for publication? I offer competitive pricing for a wide range of editorial services for all authors (traditional, self-published, indie, and hybrid) at any stage in the process.

I have been in the publishing industry for eleven years, and I spent many of those years working as a development editor. During that time, I worked closely with authors to help improve their prose, presentation, and voice. I have worked with many authors in several different academic disciplines and genres (including children’s, middle-age children’s, young adult, new adult, romance and erotica, action and thriller, as well as non-fiction and true crime). I began providing editing services for friends and family outside of my professional career in 2011 and founded Hartwell Editing in early 2014 as a way to open up my services to additional clients. Since then, I have taken on dozens of independent freelance projects and I have also joined the incredibly talented freelance editing team at Evolved Publishing. I am also proudly featured as a preferred freelance editor by the Independent Author Network.

In addition to editing services, I am now offering formatting services for Paperbacks and eBooks (ePub and Mobi)! Check out my prices here.

Plain and simple, every book needs to be edited. I am willing to work with you to make sure you get the services you need for an affordable price. Your book deserves it. Please contact me to discuss my services and rates!
