Work With Me
Send me 15 pages from your manuscript and I will edit for spelling, grammar, and style, and offer general comments for FREE! This sample edit will give you a sense of my editing style and will give me a feel for your writing.
From there, you decide which package best suits your needs and your budget:
A full read-through of your manuscript to correct and standardize spelling, grammar, and style, with general queries for clarity and minimal comments on plot.
A report highlighting what works and what doesn’t in your story, and suggestions on how to tweak. This is a high-level overview of your plot, structure, and characterizations, not a proofread that focuses on the tiny details.
The technical aspects of the Copy Edit package plus the big-picture evaluation of the Critique package for a thorough analysis of your story.
The Final Cut
One last pass through the manuscript after you’ve made all your changes to make sure it’s in tip-top shape before publishing/submitting. (Only available to clients who have already purchased either the Copy Edit or the All-In Edit.)
Want the full-on developmental editing experience working from a tiny germ of an idea to a fully-grown book? Want just a quick proofread? Something in between? Let's figure out what you need.
Sometimes you just need a person to bounce ideas off of, especially in the early stages of a book project. Or you want to organize your thoughts into a cohesive outline. We'll chat and get things in order so you can go off and write.
You've got this amazing book - now what? We'll discuss social media strategies, ads, and other ways to get your book in front of your ideal readers and come up with a marketing plan that works for you.
Pricing and Payment
After the initial sample edit, I'll prepare a quote based on the package you choose. If you want to inquire about pricing beforehand, please feel free to get in touch - no strings attached, no obligation.
I prefer payment by Paypal. Half of the balance is due up front, and the other half is due when all my work is completed.
I pride myself on quick turnaround times – you will not be left hanging for months. Once you’re ready to sign on and have chosen your package, I’ll include an estimate in your quote as to when you can expect your manuscript back.
I love me some romance of all kinds, especially historical, contemporary, New Adult, Young Adult romance, and Austenesque fiction (JAFF).
Please note that I will not edit stories featuring dubious consent, rape romance, torture, incest, or bestiality, or stories that overtly or tacitly endorse hatred toward any group (based on race, creed, sexual orientation, disability, or other quality).
