Services

Proofread
A proofread will catch errors in spelling, capitalization, punctuation, basic grammar, inconsistent format, typos, and word usage (such as further vs. farther).
$3.00 per double-spaced page



Copyedit (line by line)
A copyedit includes the elements of a proofread, but it also focuses on style, continuity, word choice, clarity, redundancies, and clichés. I won't change the meaning, but I'll look for ways to make what you write better. In nonfiction, I’ll check to see if sources are cited for statistics and quotations. In fiction, I’ll look for inconsistencies in point of view and tense.
$7.00 per double-spaced page


Substantive (Content)
A substantive edit focuses on the content being presented in a logical, engaging, and professional fashion. I’ll check for flow, structure, clarity of subject, and readability. In fiction, this edit also focuses on character development, dialogue, tags, beats, plot, subplot(s), theme, pacing, tension, voice, point of view, setting, the five senses, passive writing, showing vs. telling, and a satisfying story resolution.

Copyedit/Substantive
This combined service provides the best overall editing at a discount.

Critique
A critique will provide an assessment/review of your manuscript, noting its strengths and weaknesses. I will point out specific problem areas and give general suggestions for improvement. A critique doesn’t include detailed advice on grammatical and technical issues.
$5.00 per double-spaced page (up to three chapters)
$500. flat fee for a full manuscript


FORMAT
Manuscript pages should be double-spaced, 12-point Times New Roman, with 1 inch margins all around. All fees are based on this format.

Manuscripts are sent electronically. I use Track Changes to make corrections. If you are unfamiliar with how this feature works, I will gladly send you brief instructions.


PAYMENT
Payment is required before I begin working on your project, but I'm willing to accept half payment up front and complete 50 percent of the manuscript until the second half payment can be made. You are welcome to pay by personal check or PayPal. I begin work once your payment clears.
