"I absolutely trust Sarah with my stories - I've worked with her for eight novels and counting, and she's always done excellent work, fixing problems and improving the text while maintaining my voice."

Welcome, writers! 

Having someone evaluate your passion project is tough! I strive to be respectful and supportive of my clients, keeping their vision at the forefront. I take the time to explain my edits, ensuring that authors understand the choices they can make in their writing. Every project is approached as a reader first, then as an editor. 

​An Avid Reader Editing started in 2013. Since then, I have helped so many talented authors tell wonderful stories. I hope I can help you with yours as well! 

Understanding the financial constraints indie authors face, I wanted to provide editing services at a lower cost. Over time, I have settled on a rate of $25 per hour.  This is less than the industry standard of $30-50 per hour (depending on the type of editing).

Wondering if we'd make a good team? I offer 2,000-word sample edits for $25. If you choose to hire AARE, the cost of the sample edit is discounted from the total project cost.
