The first step, particularly for new clients, is a sample edit. That way, we can see if we’re a good fit. You’ll see my developmental editing style, and I’ll see your writing style. After contacting me, you’ll email me five pages of your draft. I’ll developmentally edit them and send them back. From there, we can both decide if we want to work on the project as a team.

For $0.006 per word, I will provide you with a detailed overlook of your book, as well as where I believe you need to take it from there. I will point out any plot holes I find, characters that need further development or are unrealistic, dangling storylines, any inconsistent tones throughout the book, or any other problems I discover or you specifically want me to look at. Comments and changes will be left throughout the book using Track Changes or in an additional document.

If you choose, I will do an additional read through after you’ve made your revisions based on my suggestions for $0.003 per word.

Example prices for an 80,000 word manuscript: The first read through would cost $480. If you decided on the second read through, it would be an additional $240.

I accept PayPal payments. Payment will be made in a 50/50 split: Half upfront, half upon completion of the project. I will send an invoice upon receipt of the manuscript. Work will start when payment is received. If payment is received after agreed-upon date, the deadline will have that many extra days added to it.

Things I will NOT do as your developmental editor: Copy editing, line editing, grammar fixes, proofreading, etc. I am not, nor will I ever proclaim to be, an authority on these subjects. I can recommend a few stellar editors who specialize in those subjects if asked.

I will not sugarcoat the truth or lie to you to save your ego. I’m here to help, not blow smoke up your skirt. If I think something needs work, I’m going to tell you. I will always be constructive and provide options for you to improve your work. It’s your job to decide whether or not to make the changes I suggest. Ultimately, it’s your work and your voice. I want it to be something you are proud of.

Turnaround time: My turnaround time will depend heavily on how much work your book needs, as well as how many clients are in the queue ahead of you. As an author myself, deadlines are extremely important to me. Please respect my time and get your manuscript to me on or before our scheduled date. If you don’t, your spot will be voided. I will respect you by having your book back to you on our agreed-upon deadline. Please plan not only your budget, but also your calendar should you choose to get in touch with me.

I look forward to hearing from and working with you in the future.
