Hiring an editing service does not necessarily mean that your book will be perfect. We offer suggestions on how your manuscript should be improved, but it will be within your complete control whether or not you accept our suggestions. It takes a lot of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears to write and publish a book but please believe me when I say, IT MUST BE EDITED. Nothing worth having comes easy.
Contact me with a brief description of the work involved, e.g. proofreading or copyediting, and the total word count. Let me know which genre you are writing in and when you need the work completed by. I can then give you a preliminary estimate and you can decide whether you want to take things further. HERE is a form to fill out and email back to me at email@example.com or simply send an email with your information.
You DO NOT need to sign up with us to receive editing services listed below.
This is an optional service.

“Managers have relationships that agents don't have—relationships that allow you to meet writers, producers, and other people that aren't just based in a specific project. These are people who are planning to do things, who could put you in their plans. They can connect you with writers who can write specifically for you. And they do put pressure on agents to produce and bring you more work. Or they'll help you find an agent who can do that.”
Send me a section of your manuscript to read/edit - up to 1,000 words - This gives me a feel for your writing. There is a small charge for this, ($25 USD) but if you sign up with me for your editing, this fee will be deducted from your final invoice.
A focus on the content, style, and language use within the manuscript. Pointing out sections that can be improved, parts where the style is inconsistent, issues with pacing, or overuse of certain words or phrases throughout the manuscript. If you want a line edit, it should always come before a copy edit.
A focus on the document at a more technical level. Review for clarity and readability as well as flow, grammar, word usage, and punctuation. Corrects grammar or spelling errors. Check for incorrect word choice (e.g., shone instead of shown, your instead of you’re, to instead of too, or two — (these are so hard to spot yourself!), as well as awkward sentences and phrasing, flow of paragraphs, presentation of dialogue, etc. Included in this option is one (1) round of author requested minute changes such as commas, character name changes, etc...
Included in this option is one (1) round of author requested minute changes such as commas, character name changes, etc... after final revision has been sent to author for approval.
This type of editing can happen early in the writing process, or during the process to bring all the pieces of the puzzle together. It is a look at the big picture within your writing. A focus on organization and structure more than word choice, punctuation, and grammar. It helps ensure your arguments line up, that your stories are in the right place, and that everything flows.
A developmental edit is a thorough and in-depth edit of your entire manuscript. It is an examination of all the elements of your writing, from single words and the phrasing of individual sentences, to overall structure and style. It can address plot holes or gaps, problematic characterization and all other existing material. It can be a hard pill to swallow for new authors to accept this critique.
The final read-through after editing has been completed. This should catch human errors in typos, mistakes in pagination or layout, spelling, grammar, missing punctuation, and/or any similar glitches or bugs that may’ve been introduced by a computer program when creating the proof. Your last stop in the editing process.
