Manuscript Critique – $2 per 1,000 words
A general assessment of your manuscript in the form of an editorial letter, focusing on big picture aspects of your story. I look at character development, point of view, plot, pacing, overall consistency, strengths and weaknesses, and suggestions for improvement. This does NOT include comments in the margins of your manuscript.
Comprehensive Edit – $4 per 1,000 words
A combination of in-line and developmental edits. Includes comments in the margins of your manuscript and an editorial letter of my overall thoughts to guide your revisions. For fiction manuscripts, I look at pacing, character and plot development, point-of-view, dialogue, tension, scene construction, climax and resolution, voice, style, word choice, syntax, repetition, appropriateness of language for intended audience, clarity, and minor grammatical errors. Does NOT include a full copy edit.
Re-Read Report – $50 flat fee
A read through of your manuscript and report on revisions from previous edits I’ve done. Does not include annotative edits, copy edits, or proofreading.
