developmental edit

Offered at a rate of $.006 per word. With this package, I’ll provide some in-text comments for feedback on specific scenes and moments, a detailed letter analyzing your manuscript’s strengths and weaknesses, and a chapter-by-chapter breakdown of story elements in your manuscript. Developmental edits focus on the “meat” of the novel: that is, the plot and characters. I’ll also be looking at voice, pacing, and consistency. This package also includes a free query critique.

 

line edit

  • Offered at a rate of $.007 per word. This package can be purchased either as a partial manuscript edit (50 pages) or a full manuscript edit. With this package, I’ll go through your manuscript and make in-text comments analyzing inconsistencies, sentence wording, clarity, prose strength, and more. Line edits focus on readability, cutting unnecessary pieces, and noting areas that need expansion, development, and strengthening. There’ll be a light edit of spelling errors, punctuation, and typos, but the focus will be on the content. This package also includes a free query critique.

 

Proofreading

Offered at a rate of $.006 per word. This package can be purchased either as a partial manuscript edit (50 pages) or a full manuscript edit. With this package, I’ll go through your manuscript using Word’s track changes feature to edit spelling errors, punctuation, and typos. I’ll also make note of passages that are unclear. This package also includes a free query critique.

 

Consultation

Offered at a rate of $50/30 min. With this package, I’ll speak with you either via zoom (video conferencing), phone, or email to discuss whatever questions you may have for me. I can discuss self publishing v. traditional publishing, the steps toward traditional publishing (and all that entails— agents, and editors, and publishers, oh my!), query letters, and the next steps you should take with your manuscript. These consultations can also happen after you’ve purchased one of the above packages, and we can go more in-depth on the feedback I gave you then.
