A Writer and Reader Partnership

Bringing the collaborative process to the table

  col·lab·o·rate /kə-'la-bə-ˌrāt/ 1: to work jointly with others or together esp. in an intellectual endeavor 


Looking through the reader’s eyes, the copyeditor checks for spelling, grammar, punctuation, and syntax 

to make sure the message is clear and there is nothing for the reader to trip over. 


My name is Janet, I’m a freelance copyeditor, and I am here to be a second set of eyes comb through and polish your writing so it shines.   


I love the collaboration process with an author and the joy in helping to bring a finished work to publication.


My process is easy, and my goal is to help you to be the best.

Testimonials

"I have used Janet's services on three of my novels, and I HIGHLY recommend her. Her work is extremely meticulous, and she catches errors that you didn't even realize existed! Not only that, but, most importantly, she is extremely passionate about her work and helping the author, and she wants to see the final product be the best work the author can produce! Her feedback isn't critical but encouraging and helps the author grow and better understand the writing process. You won't be disappointed!" Steven G. 

"Extremely professional and easy to work with and a great attention to detail. Took the time to walk me through her work, no rush, very willing to move at my pace." -Peter S.

"Janet was easy to work with and had a quick turnaround. She provided editing recommendations to our project that brought clarity and elevated the overall quality. Janet took extra care with our project as if it were her own. She was thorough in her review, and provided excellent documentation." - Andrea M.

"It gives me great pleasure to recommend Janet Ramondetta as a copy editor and all around fine editor. Janet performed these duties for my novel, Katz Has 9 Lives, and it is a better book due to her efforts. She not only spotted grammatical issues but did fact checking and caught several inconsistencies within the plot. All the assignments were returned to me on time and it was easy to see where she made her edits. I recommend her without reservation." Eric K. 

"Janet has been a pleasure to work with. She is very responsive and always eager to help! I enjoy having her on my team. She has been a great second pair of eyes. I would recommend her to anyone who needs editing or proofreading services." -Tunisha M. 

The Details

About Janet Ramondetta

I’m a freelance copyeditor, and I help indie authors get their fiction or non-fiction manuscript polished so it can be ready for submitting to a publisher agent, or self-publishing on Kindle or an e-book online.
I have over 15 years in the publishing industry. For many years, I read and reviewed hundreds of manuscripts and books for each book-buying season at Scholastic Book Fairs. Then one day, I worked with a friend on editing her screenplay. I found that I enjoyed the collaborative experience with the writer. From that point on I knew that my eagle eyes could help others realize their dream of being published.

Types of Projects

  

Mystery, thriller, detective, crime fiction, and true crime novels -- I'm obsessed with solving the puzzle, and I enjoy working on these types of manuscripts. 

I am constantly learning and have studied science, psychology, and medical terminology. I enjoy reading wellness, mental health, and self-help books.

I have an eclectic collection of cookbooks due to my passion for food and cooking and have extensive knowledge of culinary terms and techniques.

I've worked with seasoned fiction writers, novice fiction writers, screenwriters, and fitness and cookbook authors.

It's easy to get a quote and sample edit

Here's how it works:

  • We schedule a complimentary phone call to chat about your book project.
  • I offer you a sample edit (5-20 pages) of suggested corrections and comments. 
  • I email you an agreement outlining the project terms, cost, and timeline. 
  • You pay a 20% deposit to get your project booked on my calendar.
  • You email me your manuscript.
  • I get to work polishing your manuscript; emailing you frequent progress updates.
  • I send back your manuscript with my marked-up suggestions.
