I have recently simplified my editorial services. If we have worked together in the past and no longer see what you are looking for, please feel free to contact me to discuss what you need, or previous pricing arrangements. Multi-booking discounts are still available.
An important note! If you intend to submit to a publisher where I act as an editor in any capacity, please let me know before we complete any work (currently this includes Crescent Moon Press and Etopia Press). Editing by a freelance editor doesn’t ensure acceptance at a press where they work, and in no way should you believe that you should pay for a service in order to guarantee acceptance.
Proposal Package Deal: line edits and comments for first 3 chapters of a manuscript, query letter and synopsis (50 pages max, including the query and synopsis) – Cost $100
Content Edits – not a line edit, rather a read through of the story commenting on plot problems, point of view inconsistencies, awkward dialog or sentences, time line issues, character development, pacing, style and any unmarketable elements. This kind of a review comes with a 2 page report detailing the issues and a commented manuscript. $0.004 per word
Line Edits – a review of the work, line by line, looking at awkward phrases, missing words, typos, repetition, grammar issues, and any inconsistencies in dialogue / terminology. $0.004 per word
