Trial for All Packages

Proofreading Package

Copyediting Package

Developmental Editing Package

This package includes checking written material for grammar, spelling, style, typo, and punctuation issues. I will also do line edits, fixing problems with transitions, wordiness, repetition, word choice, and narrative cohesion. Upon completion, I will write a one-page summary to help flag any writing trends I noticed for future reference. The price also includes copyediting for queries and book synopses for no additional charge.

 

While turnaround depends on the current workload, below is a list of approximate timeframes. Please note that the exact turnaround will be agreed upon on hire.

  • Turnaround for a novel under 60,000 words is approximately four weeks. 

  • Turnaround for a novel between 60,000 and 120,000 words is approximately six weeks.

  • Turnaround for a novel between 120,000 and 200,000 words is approximately eight weeks.

Cost: $.015 per word. Any genre.

For all of my novel packages, I do include a trial-edit. Before any money is exchanged, I will provide you with the first 3,000 words edited to the level indicated in your intended package. If you decide that I am not the editor for you, no worries. You owe me nothing. I am happy to extend the trial to a one-time re-edit to account for feedback in style and/or voice at no additional cost.
