Interested in ordering an edit? I’d be happy to help! My rates are as follows, although for larger works I am open to negotiating:
Simple Proofread $.01/word
If you just need an extra eye to review your writing, a simple proofread should suffice. I will check for grammatical errors, typos, and spacing issues in your text.
Level 1 Edit $.015/word
Overall, you love your work. But you know deep down there are a few areas that could use improvement. In addition to a simple proofread, I will make minor copy edits where necessary to improve the clarity and consistency of your writing.
Level 2 Edit $.02/word
Your work is golden, your ideas are spellbinding. But you know your writing style and tone could use some upgrades. In addition to providing a proofread, I will perform deeper copy edits, potentially revising whole sentences or paragraphs to ensure your tone and style are consistent and clear throughout the work. I will also provide suggestions for improvement in terms of content– scenes, characters, overall structure.
Executive Edit $.03 cents/word
In addition to a Level 2 edit, I will provide developmental editing–you and I will work together to further establish characters, structure, and setting to ensure a cohesive, engaging novel that will sell well. Specifically, I will potentially make revisions that constitute up to 20% of the text, while providing helpful tips to become an excellent author for future works. I will also provide an in-depth critique of your work and write up a review on the website of your choice.
In addition to editing your novel, I also provide several post-edit services:
ePub/CreateSpace formatting $50
If you are having issues uploading your file to an ePub site (Kindle, Smashwords, etc.), I can help. I will make sure your book is formatted correctly and looks professional for potential buyers.
