Editorial Book Reviews

An editorial book review consists of a final proofread with any corrections noted in track changes and a review of the book which can be posted on the point of sale site and Goodreads as a pre-sale book review. Editorial reviews start at $50 for novelettes and go up to $175 for a novel up to 150,000 words. Return time is from two days to 4 weeks depending on the length of the book. I strive to get manuscripts completed and returned in the quickest amount of time possible.

 

Author Consultation Services

Whatever your writing style is, whether pantster or plotter or somewhere in between, I can offer you the advice you need to get your writing flowing smoothly. I can offer help with:

  • developing your characters
  • getting your dialogue to sound natural and true to the character
  • developing a story outline
  • help with plotting and scene development
  • understanding legal matters in quoting from songs, movies, or other books and more

$15 per hour of consultation. Consultations can be done by phone, email, or over Skype; the author chooses the preferred method.

 

Manuscript Critique 

A manuscript critique provides you with needed feedback on how your story is progressing. The things I look for when doing a critique are:

  • plot holes
  • loose or rambling dialogue
  • incoherency in your story line
  • intrusive author voice (telling, not showing)
  • dull action scenes
  • unnecessary scenes
  • unclear motives for character actions
  • inappropriate shifts in tense, point of view, or narrator
  • unnecessary sentences
  • dragging scenes
  • poorly developed characters and more

$50 minimum up to 20,000 words Critique includes a written editor’s report, notes through Track Changes, and a 30-minute consultation via phone, Skype, or email. The author chooses the preferred method.

 

Editing & Proofreading Services

Editing services are available at three levels. First-time users of the service get the first 2,000 words for free. You may submit your entire manuscript for editing and proofing all at once or in sections. Completed projects also get a complimentary editorial review sent to the author to be used at the time of publishing.

*Payment for services is due in advance. Edited/Proofread material will not be returned for author review until payment is received. If the manuscript has been sent in sections, then payment due is only for that section of completed work. If you are working on a tight budget ask me about my author assistance rates.

Comprehensive (heavy) Editing makes sure that your writing measures up in content, structure, language, presentation, and style to meet the expectations of your desired audience. This edit also includes looking for grammatical errors, spelling mistakes, typos, proper punctuation, formatting errors, clear, accurate, and consistent writing. This edit also includes rewriting where necessary to clarify passages and correct inconsistencies in the text.

Moderate Editing makes sure the writing is clear, accurate, and consistent.  This is for writing that has either already been through an editing/proofreading phase, or otherwise well-written and not in need of many changes.

Light Editing/Proofreading (copy editing) makes sure that all grammar, punctuation, and spelling are correct and that the writing is ready for publishing. Proofreading/light editing also checks to make sure that all attachments are in place, well written, and in the correct order. It also makes sure that the document is in the proper style, or format, for the publisher. This is for work that has already been proofed and edited at least once and is in need of a final look over before publishing.
