"I had the pleasure of working with Liberty Forrest while she worked on a feature cover story for the Brighter Business Empower Magazine. My business partner and I were blown away by Liberty's final copy. She has an amazing talent for taking all of the information and creating a very compelling story.

"As a result of Liberty's talents, she also became the Copy Editor for the Brighter Business Empower Magazine. I can't say enough about Liberty's work ethic as well as her amazing writing talents."

Editing and Proofreading Fees:  $4 per 1000 words (minimum $50). This editing includes line edits (sentence structure, repeated words, typos, grammar, punctuation) and pointing out structural issues (continuity, plot, and other major concerns that you will need to address). Example: a 75,000 word novel will cost $300.  

Winter Promo - Until March 21, repeat clients will receive a 10% discount on the next project we work on together.  

Do you have friends you want to refer to me?  You’ll get another 10% off if a reference uses my editing services!

Proofreading After Corrections: - After you’ve made the corrections I’ve suggested, if you would like me to do one last read-through the book to proof your changes, I’ll be happy to do so for a flat fee of $100.  

Free trial! Would you like to give me a “test drive"? Send the first 1,500 words of your manuscript along with your inquiry to get started for free, and I’ll show you what I can do! 

Although every project is different, a typical project up to 100,000 words takes roughly three to five days to complete, depending mostly on the word count. Projects larger than this will usually take more time.

Want to inquire about a project? Please send an email with your inquiry, genre, word count, and estimated date you would like to retain my services: info@booksbyliberty.com. 

Projects spaces fill up on a first come, first served basis. 

Rush services might be available for an added cost depending on my previous time commitments to other clients.

Want to reserve a space more than two months in advance? Send an email and we can discuss my future availability. 

Word Count: I take anything from shorts and novellas to 100,000+ words.

Genres: I’m open to most genres including erotica, biographies, memoirs, fiction, most non-technical non-fiction. I don’t do poetry, technical manuals, “hardcore” science fiction, and various types of non-fiction (e.g. financial, political). 



Half of the fee must be received via PayPal before any editing will begin. The other half is due when I am finished and before I return the completed file to you.


**Important note if you do not have a PayPal account: You can still use a credit card and proceed with PayPal payment, just as safely as if you had an account.

Payments made from outside of the UK will incur an additional 4% fee to cover a portion of the international surcharge from PayPal.
