Editing Services

I offer a variety of freelance editing services, including package deals, to accommodate all authors.

Manuscript Critique

$0.01 per word

 

Once you've finished your manuscript, you need to know where to focus your revisions. I will carefully read your work and point out aspects that affect the story overall (big-picture). You will receive an analysis of your plot, pacing, clarity, dialogue, descriptions, characterization, and world-building if applicable. I'll address what I like about your work, and what I would suggest strengthening. 

While the letter you will receive from me is quite thorough, I do offer comments in the manuscript for an additional fee. This does not include text changes, but it will consist of comments at the end of each chapter (or page for shorter work) to let you know what worked and didn't, and if there's anything that left me excited, skeptical, confused, or underwhelmed.
