Manuscript Evaluation and Beta Reading: $.0035 Per Word:
This is one of the first stages of revision. If you aren't ready to have your piece completely re-worked and just want a second opinion on the plot, characters, and general suggestions, this is the package for you. While it does not include line or content editing, we will read your manuscript and then send you extensive notes on how you can make your writing stronger.
Proofreading: $.0045 Per Word:
This is one of the final stages of editing and focuses on the polishing of language, grammar, punctuation, spelling, word choice, transitions, and sentence structure.
Copy Editing: $.0055 Per Word:
Copy Editing is a combination of beta reading and proofreading. This is the most common package, as it focuses on all details of the manuscript. We will check over plot and characterization as well fix grammar, punctuation, word choice, and make line edits. We will also provide comments in the margin of the manuscript for specific suggestions.
Second Read Through:
All second reads are half the price of the first (i.e. if your first edit cost $100.00, the second would cost $50.00).
Synopsis Editing: $35 Flat Rate:
If you have a rough draft of your synopsis or need suggestions for one you aren't sure about, we will do our best to make it clear, concise, and to the point. It is our goal to have people read your synopsis and grab your book!
