Freelance Services

Do you need a proofreader for your book? If so, I can be contacted at

I have no firm rate as I negotiate a price with each individual client. However, a full-length/80k manuscript will typically cost no less than 150 dollars. My service covers three readings of the book and a light edit. The price falls lower should the client desire fewer readings and/or no edit.

Some of my previous projects include:

Black Mariah: A Calling by Richard Finney

The Wind Raider – Part One by Richard Finney

The Three Egos by David Dunwoody (forthcoming)

“…anyone who has a story or novel that is ready for the work of a professional proofer…or if your work needs an editor…Patrick is your man!  He’s going to be working on my next project which I believe is always the best endorsement…but perhaps the best endorsement is this–I felt that Patrick was working on my writing as if it would be his name on the cover…that it would be his embarrassment if the story didn’t read in a professional way. Hard to find people like that…and Patrick Rutigliano is one of those kind of people.  We all know published writing is a team effort…well, I’m glad to have Patrick on my team!”

-Richard Finney, author of Demon Days and The Wind Raider
