Editorial Services

Line/Content Edit $150/50pages*

For completed manuscripts in need of “fine-tuning”. I’ll read your manuscript for bigger-picture elements such as plot inconsistencies, pacing, narrative, or POV issues, character development, etcetera, as well as “aesthetics” such as wording, sentence structure, showing vs. telling, and light spelling and grammar.

How It Works

I’ll make all corrections and note all suggested revisions and recommendations within the manuscript using MS Word’s Track Changes. I’ll provide a free “first glance” evaluation of your first 20 pages. If we agree that my service and skillset are a good match for your manuscript’s needs, we’ll move forward with the rest of the manuscript. You’ll pay the first half up front. The final half will be due upon delivery of notes and revisions.

Once you review notes, I’ll give your manuscript one more complimentary review. Please note, this edit is not a copyedit or proofread.

 

Manuscript Evaluation $150/ first 50 pages + $125/50 pages thereafter*

For completed, first draft manuscripts. I will read your first draft and evaluate it as a whole, concluding with an in-depth, developmental edit report. I’ll let you know what works and what doesn’t work with the overall plot, structure, pacing, narrative and POV, setting, and marketability. I’ll also provide recommendations on how to strengthen the manuscript if needed, and suggestions on how to resolve any issues for following drafts.

If we agree that my service and skillset are a good match for your manuscript’s needs, we’ll move forward with the rest of the manuscript. You’ll pay $150 for the first 50 pages, and then $125 per every 50 pages thereafter. Initial payment of $175 + half is due up front. The final half will be due upon delivery of completed written evaluation.

After final payment is made, we’ll schedule a phone call/Skype to review and discuss the evaluation, at which time I’ll answer any addition questions you may have.

Depending on the length of your manuscript, alternate payment plans can be negotiated.

 

Developmental Edit $200/first 50 pages + $175/50 pages thereafter*

For completed, first draft manuscripts. I will read and evaluate your first draft as a whole, concluding with an in-depth, developmental edit report. I’ll let you know what works and what doesn’t work with the overall plot, structure, pacing, narrative and POV, setting, and marketability. I’ll also work with you to resolve the discussed issues and get you to your next draft! I’ll help you re-work, re-write, re-structure, and brainstorm as needed.

The final half will be due upon delivery of marked manuscript and evaluation.

After final payment is made, we’ll schedule a phone call/Skype to review the notes and evaluation, and have an in-depth discussion about what revisions need to be made. After this initial call, you can take as much time as you need to make revisions. Feel free to reach out to me as often as you’d like with questions or for advice during this time.

Upon completion of your re-write, I’ll review changes and give another complimentary evaluation of your manuscript. We’ll have a final call/Skype to discussion any further suggestions or recommendations I have.

I’m happy to read and evaluate any follow-up drafts hereafter for a flat rate per evaluation.
