Full manuscript edits are closed at this time.
For a partial or full manuscript edit, I will send back two documents. The first will be an annotated version of your story with comments I’ve made as I’ve read. These comments can range from world-buildling questions, to plot inconsistencies, to my reactions.
The second document will be an analysis highlighting the good aspects of your manuscript, what needs work, and any major plot holes or issues I found.
2-3 weeks depending on length of manuscript. Less than a week for synopses, blurbs, and chapters.
Rates are determined based on the length of the manuscript or set of chapters and the extent of the edit you would like.
For only proofreading—looking out for grammar, spelling, punctuation etc—I will charge a flat fee of $.005 per word.
For only developmental editing, I will charge a flat fee of $.009 per word.
QUERY & SYNOPSIS CRITIQUES
This service is open!
I will send back an annotated document highlighting areas for improvement in both a query and synopsis ranging.
Each of these go for a flat rate of $20.
For additional passes, after the first, there will be a $5 charge.
