Your words, my expertise.
Let's talk about your project and how I can help.
I want your project to be awesome. If you need help that's not listed below, contact me anyway. Maybe we can work something out.
Line Edit / Copyedit - $0.03 per word
A thorough review of the manuscript to identify stylistic errors, scenes that are bland or inconsistent, and character issues and I provide suggestions for how to address these problems. If you need to add word count, then I search the manuscript for opportunities to create a richer reader experience. I also correct spelling and grammar.
Proofread - $0.008 per word
This is the final correction of typos, spelling, grammar, and punctuation for a manuscript that is ready to publish.
Blurb Writing and Editing - $60 to write, $30 to edit
For many authors, blurb writing is the absolute worst part of the job. No worries, I am here to help. I will review your synopsis and write the blurb for you or take what you have and kick it up a few notches. In a past life, I was considered quite the spin doctor. Let me apply those skills for you.
Developmental Editing - $50 per hour or negotiable
You know what the book is about but need help getting the details right. A developmental edit starts with what you have and helps to fill in those gaps to make the book layered and interesting for your readers. We can meet to chat about the book (online, by phone, or in person) or I can read the manuscript and provide a detailed written report.
Submission Support - negotiable
Whether you are entering a contest or have a request for full you need to send, you want to make a great impression. Let's talk about how to make it all shine.
Once we have discussed your project (in person, by phone, or in email), I will send an estimate for the time required and the cost of services. If you decide to move forward, 50% of estimated cost must be paid prior to the start date. Final payment is due once work is completed.
