Editing

You’ve put your heart and soul (and who knows how many hours) into creating your book, and you’ve just typed the last word. But is it really ready for your audience? Is it polished and communicated effectively? Plot holes filled in? Pacing nice and brisk? Characters developed and their names consistent throughout? Conflicts interesting? As an author I can help with all of these, and give you the peace of mind to know that your book will be your perfect vision, only better. I provide the following services.

Correction of grammatical issues and inconsistency, continuity errors, and plot holes. Flagging or correction of awkward or confusing language. May include a fact check of technical details if necessary.

Developmental edit: $.02/word

Note: Includes a proofread and copy edit.

A developmental edit is a process in which the editor works closely with the author during the creation of the book to consult on story structure, character development, genre beats, language choices, style, and marketability.

This price may also used for edits that require extremely complex technical fact-checking or those which require work above and beyond the norm (for example, for books written by non-native speakers).

New author? Self publishing for the first time? 

I love working with new authors. Make sure to ask me about my new author rates! I know that as a new author or self published author money might not be flowing! Sometimes the hardest part of getting published is getting your book seen by an editor and spending a fortune. Complete my form below for more information!
