Content Editing

I will edit your content to make sure everything flows; there are no plot holes in your story, along with suggestions on pacing. Again with content editing, I will be proofing as I go. I cannot do content editing without proofing as well. Price - $0.005 per word.

Premium Package

I will work with you and your manuscript through the entire process. The first read will be the majority of content editing and proofreading. I can’t read without proofreading at the same time. Call me crazy, but if I see something wrong, I have to fix it. I will give you my suggestions....

mistake finder

If you have your manuscript completely done and ready to go, but you want one more set of eyes to check for those last few errors that sneak through, this is your package. Price is $1.00 per mistake.

author testimonial

“Wow! I don't know where to start, except for a huge thank you to Karen Crain for the wonderful job you did in editing my work. I thoroughly enjoyed working along side you every step of the way. You invested a lot of time reviewing, going over every small detail, and making accompanying comments that made me pay attention to things I might otherwise have overlooked. Your brainstorming, attention to detail and hard work was a lot of help and without you this book would not exist. I am extremely happy with your work and look forward to sending you Book Two, The Clock Tower, in the Sisters of the Craft Series.” Sincerely, Sara Simpson
