Line Editing

Rate starting at 3 cents per word

Line editing focuses on paragraph-level and sentence-level critiques that help beef up your writing and make your work more articulate and deliberate in meaning. I recommend this service for those who are concerned about the content and flow of their work.

 

My evaluation will focus on the clarity, fluidity, meaning, and content of your manuscript. I'll address your word choice and how it affects the meaning of your writing, where your sentences stumble over one another or create confusion for your reader, and where areas of your writing seem to contradict one another, among other issues. I will also acknowledge clunky or awkward-sounding sentences and paragraphs, and I may add to, delete, revise, or reorganize these elements.

My line editing service is combined with copyediting, so in addition to the above, I'll also check for mechanical issues involving spelling, grammar, and punctuation. This service includes two rounds of edits.

Copyediting

 Rate starting at 2 cents per word

I recommend this service for those who have already put their work through at least one round of editing and are confident in the content of their writing. I will mainly address mechanical issues, but I will also acknowledge any larger issues that call attention to themselves.

 

I will perform a detailed check of your work for proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation, as well as tense consistency, repetition, plot holes, basic sentence and paragraph organization, flow, and logic.

I may make corrections or suggestions if I discover there are significant plot holes or major inconsistencies, and will work with you to create solutions to these issues as they come up. A detailed style sheet will be provided along with this service.

Proofreading

Rate starting at 1 cent per word

Proofreading is the absolute last step of the editing process and serves as the final check to make sure all edits from previous rounds have been applied. This service is for complete drafts that have been through several rounds of editing and are ready for publishing or submission.

 

I will meticulously check for proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation, as well as typos and overall consistency. This service is perfect for finding those embarrassing, last-minute errors that can easily misrepresent you as a writer. 

 

Payment Terms:

A base rate of $50 will be applied to projects with fewer than 2,500 words.

 

I require a 50% non-refundable deposit upon scheduling your project and signing a service agreement. The remaining balance will be due upon completion.

I accept payment exclusively through PayPal.
