My editing services are comprehensive. They will address all aspects of your project.
THE HEART: I will analyze your character arc, check for holes in the plot and analyze your scene setting.
THE SOUL: This is where I check your punctuation, spelling and grammar, formatting, unrealistic dialogue and action, awkward sentence structure, make sure you are using powerful verbs to achieve maximum impact. I will help you see inconsistencies, repetition of words or phrasing and habitual writing flaws.
MANUSCRIPTS AND SHORT STORIES – $4.75/page
A page is defined as size 12 Times New Roman, double spaced with one-inch margins. This is generally 250 words. For manuscripts, I prefer to start with the first three chapters or 25 – 40 pages. This allows you to review my suggestions and change things further along in the book. We continue from there, concentrating on 3 – 5 chapters at a time. This is a comprehensive line by line edit, not just correcting spelling errors and grammar. I will fact check and point out areas where the storyline lags, is disjointed, or needs improvement.
QUERY LETTERS – $50.00
Query letters have to stand out to get the attention of an agent/publisher. When I am editing a query, it is an interactive process that usually requires several revisions of the original. Therefore, this is a one time fee that will cover you up to 15 revisions. I will help you have a query letter you are proud of and makes an agent/publisher sit up and take notice.
SYNOPSIS – $50.00
The synopsis is just as important as the query letter. It will be an interactive process that usually requires several revisions of the original. I will help you construct a synopsis that does your novel justice. This one time fee will cover up to five revisions.
TELEPHONE CONSULTATION – $1.00/MINUTE ROUNDED TO 10 MINUTES.
There may be times when you want to discuss the direction you want your project to take over the phone. We will schedule this in advance. I am available to all time zones. I want to help!
