Copyediting

This edit will focus on spelling, punctuation, and grammar. This is the quickest turnaround time on an edit. I catch what a person doing a quick read, particularly a person already familiar with the work, will gloss over and miss. 

$.01—.03/word 

Developmental Editing

This edit focuses on the overall flow of the piece, dramatic structure, and a detailed consistency check of characters, settings, and timeline. Extensive reordering and rewriting may happen. This can be the longest turnaround time. This edit should take place early in the editing process.

$.02—.03/word

indexing

I work off proofs to create an index for your work so readers can quickly find and reference ideas and terms in your writing.

Manuscript Evaluation

You will receive a report evaluating all the elements of your story, suggestions for strengthening those elements, and a recommendation for your next step. The following elements will be evaluated: overall impressions, plot and story line, conflict and tension, character development, dialogue, pacing and readability, point of view, voice and tone, and consistency. Don’t worry! The purpose of an evaluation isn’t to only point out areas for improvement, it’s also to let you know what’s working. Please note: this service is not an edit, you will not receive a marked-up copy of your manuscript.
