Hi, I'm Ceara. I am an experienced line editor and proofreader with 5+ years of experience and more than 300 projects under my belt. I've edited in many genres, including fantasy, romance, non-fiction, horror, children's books, and more. I've worked with USA Today bestselling authors and those publishing their work for the first time. I live and breathe this stuff, and I'm passionate about helping self-published authors make their manuscripts shine. Read below for services, rates, testimonials, and my portfolio. I look forward to working together!

Line Editing/Copy Editing

Copy editing and line editing go hand-in-hand for me. This service focuses on polishing prose, streamlining style, and catching any spelling, grammar, or tense errors. Includes in-text comments via Track Changes on continuity or story concerns and a final proofread before delivery. 

Rate: $0.015 per word, depending on the state of the manuscript.


This is a final polish after developmental and line edits have been completed. Includes checks for spelling, punctuation, and grammar errors before publishing.

Rate: $0.01 per word, depending on the state of the manuscript.

"Ceara's expertise and hard work is invaluable to me. She is a top notch copy and proof editor and I wouldn’t dare release a book without her proofing it. I also love that she has a quick turnaround and a very fair price. I highly recommend Ceara to any author!"
