Diane Ziomek Author/Freelancer The title of your home page


After spending countless hours online and reading copy that is occasionally riddled with typos and other errors, I have decided to offer some services of my own. My teenagers refer to me as the "grammar police" so I have decided to make my skills work for me and help others improve their manuscripts, resumes, homework assignments, essays and more. 

Note: The prices listed for Proofreading and Copy Editing services will be based on the actual work required, but will never be more per page than the maximum listed. After a quick scan of the document, I will determine the amount of work required and base my estimate on that figure. I feel offering this option will be fair to all.

Please send me your file in MSWord and I will send you an invoice per my Payment Policy below. Please allow up to 24 hours for receipt of estimate/invoice.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me as well. Thank you!

Payment Policy:  For an estimate on your project, please email me and I will send you a PayPal invoice for 25% of the estimate. You will be invoiced for the remainder upon completion of the service. This policy is in effect for new clients only. For clients in good standing (first three invoices paid in full upon completion of service) the 25% deposit will be waived. 

Proofreading Services 

Proofreading is performed to correct spelling, punctuation, capitalization and grammatical errors in documents. These rates are for a final proof on previously edited copy. If more attention is required for the manuscript, please see Copy Editing Services pricing to the right.

Article Writing Service

I will write a 300 - 500 word article for your blog or website on topics such as gardening, crafts, home-based business, writing and self-publishing. Please allow up to three business days for article delivery.

My rate per article is $20.00, as the majority of articles will be over 400 words. Articles of more than 500 words are also available, but with additional pricing.

Please contact me with details such as niche required, number of words and an email address to which I can send your PayPal invoice. The cost for this service will be billed in full.

Copy Editing Services 

Copy Editing is a step beyond proofreading. It includes the proofreading service, but will also focus on sentence structure, formatting and text accuracy. 


  • Standard (more than 3 days) $6.95/page (max)
  • Quick (within 72 hours) $7.95 (max)/page - 100 pages maximum

Copywriting Services

 Do you need copy written for a product or service you provide? 

Conversion starts with great copy. Your potential customers/clients will often see the written words about your product before they have the opportunity to try it for themselves. To ensure they take the next step and request more information or purchase your product, show them why they should. 

For more information on pricing, please contact me. I will write compelling copy to help you get the conversion you desire. Whether it is an ad for your local newspaper or a whitepaper to be mailed to potential clients, I will make it happen.

 Coaching Services

I am happy to say I am now offering basic coaching for anyone needing that extra push to get started in a writing career. 

Rates are based on individual requirements, and you are under no obligation to stay in the Basic Coaching Program for any minimum amount of time. I am here to help you be the best that you can be.

My coaching services are currently available to those who are interested in writing nonfiction, as that is where I have the most expertise.
