EDITING WITH INDIE PUBLISHING IN MIND.

Manuscript evaluation

Are you on a tight budget but want some professional feedback? With a manuscript evaluation, I can help you strengthen your story's foundations by giving feedback on larger story aspects such as plot, characterization, pacing, and world-building. I will also give you suggestions for how to go forward with revisions.

What you get: an editorial report

Rate: $0.01/word for the first 50K words; price scales up from there

Copyediting

Copyediting is editing at the sentence level. This includes editing grammar, punctuation, spelling, mechanics of style, wordiness, and internal consistency. I include stylistic editing in this as well, which addresses word order, flow, and clarity. This is where the magic happens!

What you get: a tracked manuscript, a clean manuscript, and an editorial report

Rate: starts at $0.025/word (CAD)

Proofreading

Proofreading is quality management more than editing. This step takes place once the manuscript has been typeset and is in PDF form.

 

One tiny error in a sentence can change the entire meaning of your words, and errors in formatting can be distracting. I have an eye for detail and will catch errors that could decrease the quality of your work.

What you get: a marked-up PDF

Rate: starts at $0.01/word (CAD)

Packages

Manuscripts often need more than one round of editing and sometimes multiple rounds at each step of editing.

After completing a complimentary sample edit for you and assessing what your manuscript needs, I will put together an editing package that fits your goals and your manuscript.
