Sample Edit: One sample edit per author.
Submit the first 3-4 pages of your work and I will return a sample edit, which will give you an idea of the elements I normally look for when copyediting a manuscript.
First Thirty Pages: $120.00 (up to 7,500 words)
Great for writing contests which require a first chapter or agents/editors who request a partial manuscript. Submit your first thirty pages, double-spaced, in an industry-acceptable 12 point font with one-inch margins all around the page. I will return an edit with the same Copyediting/Line Editing review I do for full manuscripts.
First Fifty Pages: $200.00 (up to 12,500 words)
For writers unable to afford a full edit, this can be a useful tool to help you learn what to look for in your own self-editing. This is also helpful for those who are undecided whether to commit to a full edit.
FULL MANUSCRIPT EDITS
Copyedit/Line Edit: $1.6 cents/word
This includes a review of the items listed in the Copyediting/Line Editing section. [insert link] I will also provide a copy of the manuscript’s Style Sheet, a great tool for maintaining manuscript consistency. This document contains items such as location and character names, made-up words, odd spellings, abbreviations, pertinent info on characters—the essential data you need to make sure your character’s best friend doesn’t morph from a Janet to a Janeen over the course of 400 pages.
Proofreading: 1 cent per word
This includes a review of the items listed in the Proofreading section.
Please note: I am not doing developmental edits or manuscript critiques at this time.
