I offer Complete Editing only which means I look at Substantive/Development which is an overall edit of your work, looking at your structure, flow, development, scenes, conciseness, clarity, dialogue, etc. I also perform Copy and Line Editing in which I look closely at a sentence-by-sentence review of basic English such as spelling, grammar, punctuation, and tense. I will also review your word choice, phrasing, dialogue, repeat/repeat wordage, and consistency, which includes Proofreading: one last look at your work for spelling errors, typos, etc.
I won’t make changes to your content or style. I offer yellow highlight on what is wrong, needs correcting, or I can add in comments on the side.
Rates and Requirements
Rates are inclusive unless your sample shows me you need extra editing.
Complete Edit (includes Proofreading) $35-$40 per hour – others may charge $45 and up
Proofreading only is $20 per hour – others may charge $25 and up
I keep my pricing lower, and I will do a free sample edit of 1000 words.
Work must be submitted in MS Word format and may be single or double spaced. Size 12 font preferred. Contact at this link.
Once we agree to do your project, half the rate is due when you sign the contract, the last before you receive the completed edited project. Payment plans are available for all, especially those with a large manuscript. I will use your word count to arrive at the total cost.
I will send your free 1000 word sample edit back to you at which point we can decide if we are a good match. All contact will be via email for what you need, the cost, and the contract with total price and payment plan. Once you sign the contract and send me your down payment via my email and through PayPal. I will invoice you.
I will tighten your manuscript and polish it until it shines. I do not edit the genres of erotica or Satanic.
