Editing Services Offered

As I continue to grow this writing business, I’m adding some editing services.

Beta Reading (0.5 cents/word)

As a Beta Reader, I will not make corrections to your story.  I will approach it as someone who has purchased your book for the enjoyment of reading it, and I’ll provide feedback regarding my impressions. Did I like the story in general? Did I have feelings about the characters? Did the plot make sense to me, or were there parts where I was confused? An electronic copy of your manuscript (MS Word) will be returned to you with a summary of my impressions at the end. Depending on my thoughts, I may also leave comments in the margins.

Proofreading (0.65 cents/word)

I will read through your manuscript line by line, watching for grammar, spelling, and punctuation issues.  The edited version will be returned to you as a Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) file, with my changes tracked.

Copyedit (1 cent/word)

This is somewhat a combination of Beta Reading and Proofreading. I will work over your manuscript and correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation. I will strive to ensure that your text is readable, and will not confuse your reader. I will also pay attention to the plot and watch for and note logic and consistency errors.  The edited version will be returned to you as a Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) file, with my changes tracked. There will be a summary of my feedback at the end, and – depending on what I discover – I may also leave comments in the margins.
