Editorial Services

I’m now open to freelance editing!


Pricing and Services:

Query:

Price: $25 flat fee

Developmental Edits: Big-picture feedback, plus structural edits. This is where I edit for plotline, character development, worldbuilding, and general story feedback (like a beta reader on steroids).

Price: $2 per page (1 page is roughly 300 double-spaced words in 12 point font)

Line Edits: Focusing on prose – I can line edit for basic grammar (sentence comprehension, tense, punctuation, etc.).

Price: $4 per page (1 page is roughly 300 double-spaced words in 12 point font)

Substantial Edits (while still Maintaining Author Voice): If you want developmental feedback and line edits for grammar plus style (including wordiness, effective sentence structure, repetition, etc.).

Price: $5 per page (1 page is roughly 300 double-spaced words in 12 point font)

Copy Edits: At this time, I do not offer this service.

I am a developmental editor. My line-by-line notes might include suggestions related to clarity, consistency, and syntax. I’ve even been known to catch the occasional dangling modifier. That said, if you are not interested in big-picture suggestions, and instead want help correcting spelling, grammar, and punctuation, you should consider working with a copyeditor. Every book should be copyedited before publication.

This is where I redirect you to the lovely, Dr. JM Paquette, whose skillset on the intricacies of grammatical rules will blow you away.
