Content/Developmental Edits: $0.007 per word
This service is used to find and strengthen weaknesses in your manuscript. This may entail untangling sticky plot points, developing stronger/more realistic characters, solving structural issues, or anything else you want to focus on. After you have edited, you are welcome to send your manuscript back for an additional reading (included in the original fee).
Copy-Edits: $.005 per word (a heavy editing fee may apply if your manuscript requires more than 50 edits per thousand words)
This service is used to find and correct errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, and style. It also includes finding and correcting minor inconsistencies in plot, characterization, and setting. After you’ve reviewed the revised manuscript, you are welcome to send it back for another reading (included in the original fee).
Proofreading: $.003 per word
This service is used to check for consistency in page numbers, chapter headings, table of contents, and style. It also includes checking for anything that might have slipped through a copy-edit. This service includes one round of proofreading and is done on my e-reader.
Beta Reading: $.001 per word
This service is used to get an overall feel for readability of your manuscript. This includes checking for plot holes, character inconsistencies, and believability. Manuscripts will be read through once before being returned with notes and recommendations.
Blurb Writing: $25
This service is used to create a compelling synopsis that will help sell your book. It includes up to three rounds of work by me. We work together to put together a blurb that accurately and concisely portrays your story.
Audiobook Proofing: $25 per finished hour
This service is used to make sure your audiobook is as flawless as possible. I listen to your book while following along with your manuscript and make a list of mistakes, mouth clicks, change in pacing or characterization, etc. (There is an hour minimum with this service.)
