Once I receive your manuscript I will read it through once making general notes and basic line edits, then read it a second time taking much more detailed notes. Afterward I will compile my notes, examining the elements (narrative structure, character arcs, etc.), of your manuscript and how effectively they’re working, then write you an extensive document analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of your piece and recommending actions to improve it. This is a very time-consuming process. It is designed for writers who either don’t need, or don’t want to pay for, extensive line edits.
For this service I charge $4 per page.
If on top of the manuscript analysis you would like me to make general line edits, the fee is $5 (light edits) to $6 (moderate edits) per page.
For a full copy edit, the fee is $8 per page.
For a proofread only, I charge $35 an hour.
If your manuscript doesn’t fall neatly into any of these categories, please contact me and I’ll do my best to come up with a plan that will meet your needs.
Note: Page size is standard submission format—12-point type (preferably Times New Roman), double spaced, 1-inch margin
