Editing Services

Before you type “The End?”

Let’s review your unfinished manuscript and see if we can get you on schedule to finish your book without overwriting.

Types of editing?

FREE evaluation of 5,00 words (250 words per page, 12 point font, double spaced)

#1 Manuscript Critique Services

Let’s get to know each other and see if we are a good fit for working together. I will edit  Chapter 1, 2 and 3.  I do charge for this service.  If you decide to have your entire manuscript edited with me, credit will be given for the amount previously paid.

#2 Manuscript Evaluation (up to 50,000 words)

This service includes a written report based on the points below with detailed analysis, goals, and recommendations. The review also includes up to a 2-hour phone conference to discuss the evaluation and to address the author’s questions.  I also act as “book doctor” and will accept partial drafts to help with development. The author is welcome to prepare questions in advance for the editor to consider while reading. This service does not provide detail edits as in developmental editing.

Fiction Developmental Edits

This service will look at the core of the story, making recommendations on characterization, plot development, setting, structure, pacing, voice, theme, dialogue, narration, exposition, theme, clarity, goals

You’ll get a fresh perspective on what’s working—and what isn’t—and suggestions on how to rework your manuscript so that everything fits together nicely like puzzle pieces.

Non-Fiction Developmental Edits

This service will look at your idea, introduction/conclusion, goals, tone, purpose, cohesiveness, clarity, completeness.

What to expect:

  • A written evaluation of your manuscript’s strengths and weaknesses in chapter summaries
  • Recommendations for improvements
  • One-on-one conversation through email or phone for further clarification of recommendations
  • Returning discount for edits after your revisions.

 

Content Editing

This service is after the developmental editing. It will improve book draft content for clarity, cohesiveness, and effectiveness. For fiction words.content editing will refine plot, theme, character, dialogue and other devices. The editor will correct at the paragraph, sentence, and word level. 

What to expect:

  • An electronic line-by-line edit of your manuscript using Track Changes. This feature shows any changes, queries, and suggestions made by the editor, right in your document.
  • One-on-one conversation through email or phone for further clarification of recommendations
  • Returning discount for edits after your revisions

 

Copy Editing (Proofreading)

Proofreading is done at the stage before publication. The rules vary with each genre and readership. This service will correct the final draft at the sentence and word level for syntax, grammar, and mechanics, spelling, and punctuation. Authors may view, and then choose to accept or reject, each editorial change with “track changes” tool in MS Word.
