If you are writing a longer story or piece, consider breaking your submission up into multiple documents to make this experience budget-friendly. If you choose the medium or heavy edit, you may save one or two of your revisions for the completed document.
Once a request is submitted, I will contact you within 24 hours with a firm price quote based on a review of the document, your type of edit, requested due date, and any special requests. Payments are accepted via PayPal and money order. In order to initiate the editing process, a 50% deposit is required, with the balance due upon completion. You are eligible for a 20% discount if the entire invoice is paid up front.
Writing feedback is not a true “edit,” but is geared toward the author who wants reader comments and suggestions on the document. These documents receive:
- Suggestions to improve setting, characters, and plot
- Feedback on plot holes, continuity issues, clarity, and believability
- Analysis of target audience
Price: $10 per 10,000 words
The light edit is a general proofreading. This document has probably already been edited and just needs a final read-through before being sent to publishing. An edit of the proof copy would fall into this category. The document is examined for accuracy in these items:
- Spelling, grammar, and punctuation
- Hyphen use
Price: $15 per 10,000 words
The medium edit is a line-by-line copy edit. The medium edit includes a check of up to two additional revisions of the same document. This is the most popular editing type. The document is checked for:
