Why choose Markham Correct?
I copy-edit and proofread for several publishers, as well as working with many independent authors. My rates are reasonable and my turnaround times are fast. I hold an honors degree in English language and literature, and a full postgraduate teaching certification at senior level. I’m a newly-signed author with Carina UK and Grimbold Books and have a solid understanding of the end-to-end writing process from both sides of the desk.
You won’t find me on sites such as Reedsy, because of the commission they take for editorial work. My goal is to keep costs for independent authors as low as possible, whilst still maintaining the highest standard of work.
A free, no obligation quote for your MS
Whether you’re looking for a proofreader or a copy-editor, I offer a free, no-obligation sample edit of up to 1,000 words. Please include the full word count of your MS with your sample, and I will attach a quote upon return. Prices for editing will vary depending upon the level of intervention required; for this reason, I don’t offer a flat rate, and will instead gauge the level from your sample and quote accordingly. This ensures you get a fair, tailored price for your individual needs, and know exactly what the cost of your completed MS will be from the outset. A final read of your MS after you’ve made any suggested changes is included as standard, and all quotes are valid for six months.
