Full manuscript edit – Developmental plus:
An overview on what’s working in your manuscript and what isn’t, suggestions for possible reorganization to help fix what might not be working, an editor letter, and inline comments. Line edit habits you lean heavily on will also be noted, along with suggestions on how to smooth your personal prose, but will not be corrected line-by-line. For an additional $30, I’ll also run two passes of your query letter, once before reading, for confusion’s sake, and once after, for suggestions on how to make it more specific and intriguing. — priced at .005 cents per word.
Line edit overview:
Your writing only gets better with practice, and a line editor can fix everything for you, or you can learn to fix it yourself. Send me 50 pages of your work and receive back complete line edits, along with a summary in letter form of what you rely most heavily on and need to be aware of going forward, to help the rest of your manuscript and future works shine. — $75
Worried we’re not the right fit?
For $40, you can send me your first 25 pages for a sample edit (line and developmental thoughts, as best I can do with only 25 pages), which will be deducted off your total if you book a developmental plus or line edit overview.
I’m comfortable with young adult and adult novels, from fantasy to contemporary and almost everything in between. I have a hard time falling for zombies, so unless you’re looking to win over doubters, I may not be the editor for you. Historical fiction can be a hard sell for me also, and no erotica or non-fiction please.
