Editing Services

My services are geared towards the indie author looking to have their manuscript professionally edited for a reasonable price. I offer a variety of services tailored to fit your specific budget. Authors are encouraged to choose a combination of items or get the complete package, depending on their needs. Superior quality, a speedy turnaround, and low price is my specialty. As a writer, I find you're often too close to your work to clearly see what would take your work from good to great; after all you've been living and breathing the plot line. This is where I come in. I will clean up and critique your work, making your work the best it can be. I am not a writer, so I will not re-write your work. Your work is just that, your work, and it will remain the way you intended. My job is to give you constructive suggestions on what is missing, or needs help.I edit using Microsoft Word “track changes”. Documents should be formatted with double spaces. If there is a need to edit on paper, I will use the good old red pen.

Premium Service Package

With the complete package I offer the most extensive editing. I will work with you and your manuscript through the entire process. The first read will be the majority of content editing along with 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 on where your content is lacking, if scenes do not fit, if you changed the look of someone without realizing it, you name it, and I will find it. After your first re-write, I will edit it again, specifically looking at the changes you made and making sure everything flows along. Once you are completely satisfied with your manuscript and it is ready for publishing, I will give it one last go to make sure there is nothing that slipped through. This is the most expensive package, but it is worth it. We won’t stop until you are completely satisfied with your manuscript.
