Editing

Are you an author who needs help editing your next full-length novel, e-book, or workbook? I’d love to work with you!

Content Critique

This is essentially the first major edit of your written material. If you’ve written a full-length manuscript but think there may be some issues that need to be addressed and/or want an unbiased trained eye, this service will be helpful. I will read the manuscript and give you feedback with copious notes and suggestions regarding the plot, character development, and tone.

<50,000 words – $100

50-100k – $150

 

Proofreading

Your book has been previously edited but before you hit publish and release it to the world, you need to review to make sure there are no errors that you may have missed. That is where I come in. I will go beyond the traditional “spell check” and catch any errors you or the computer may miss and ensure that there are zero grammatical errors.

 Payment Policy

Once we’ve agreed upon a start date and you’ve emailed your  manuscript, an invoice will be emailed to you through Paypal for a deposit of 50% of the full editing price. The remaining balance must be paid the day before the completed edit is scheduled to be returned to you.

Turnaround Time

Turnaround time is about 1 to 2 weeks based on an average of 75,000 words. Longer manuscripts may require a longer time.

What do you edit?

I edit fiction and nonfiction works; workbooks, short stories,and full length novels. I primarily edit for romance authors but have experience in other genres as well.

How do you show corrections?

I use Track Changes to show corrections and Comments to ask any questions I may have about word usage or other discrepancies in the story.
