Got a story to tell, but not sure if it’s ready to be shared?

Freerange FineTuning


Freerange FineTuning is a specialized writing and editing service for the needs of writers, scholars and storytellers.

We offer industry standard rates for proofreading and editing, but unlike other editing services, we tailor our services to your individual writing needs. Once you get in touch with us, we will ask for a sample page of your writing, and establish a deadline and rate. For writers interested in a project rate, we will not only correct your errors, but can work with you over time to develop as a writer.

“The manuscript assessment for my unpublished novel was prompt, helpful, educational, witty, and professional. My editor’s comments ranged from detailed advice on pacing, character, plot, structure, dialogue, theme, to recommended works of literature. I’m inspired to revise my novel and send it to an agent soon!” – published author Heather Kristin,

Sample pricing*

Basic proofreading:

1.5 cents a word. One of our proofreaders will correct your use of articles, grammatical mistakes, comma use, subject-verb agreement, spelling, punctuation, citations and reference list, typographical errors, and other common errors. We guarantee a 24-hour turn around for every 2,500 words you submit.

Advanced editing:

3.5 cents a word. A consultant will proofread your work AND provide feedback on word choice, style, sentence fragments, use of colloquialisms, paragraphing, transitions, footnotes, use of charts or graphs, etc. This may require some rewriting of your sentences. Advanced editing is particularly appropriate for non-native writers of English.

Specialized Project Rates:

Manuscript assessments, thesis chapters, novels, journal articles, etc.  We meet your unique needs, especially around coherency and argument, for writers who desire support through the development and revision stages of their project. Project rates are also appropriate for writers who would like on-going support to enhance their writing skills over time.
