I offer affordable* and professional editing. I know choosing an editor for your manuscript is a big decision, so I am happy to provide a free sample by editing the first couple of pages of your manuscript for free. Details regarding my editing service are listed below, but if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Editing Services: Editing is a two-step process. During the first round, I will carefully read your manuscript, flagging confusing sentences, passive phrases, repetitive words, inconsistencies in the storyline, spelling errors, and grammatical errors. When I send the markups back to you, I will offer other suggestions as necessary which will help you make your manuscript the best it can be. Once you have finished reviewing the edited manuscript and accepting (or rejecting) the suggested changes, you will resubmit it to me for a final proofread. The cost for my editing service is $0.01 per word ($50 minimum). For example, a 10,000 word manuscipt would cost $100. I am happy to offer a discounted rate for manuscripts over 50,000 words, as I know editing costs can get quite expensive.
Payment information: I accept payment via Paypal unless other arrangements are made in advance. I will ask for a deposit of half before I begin working on your manuscript. Full payment is due upon delivery of completed edits. If finances are an issue and you need to set up a payment plan, do not hesitate to contact me. Money should never be an obstacle to publication. I believe every author deserves to have his or her story told, and every book deserves a thorough edit. Other considerations: Manuscripts must be submitted in Microsoft Word (unless other arrangements are made in advance). Because it is your manuscript, I will not make any changes to your work. Instead, I will utilize the "Track Changes" and "Comment" features to suggest changes. It is up to you to accept or reject any changes I suggest.
How Long Will It Take? I generally quote 3 to 5 business days per 10,000 words. If I have a heavy workload, I will let you know in advance before taking on your project. If you have an extremely tight deadline, please let me know and I'll do whatever I can to help you.
