Editing Serivces and Pricing
*If you choose to edit with us, we offer a sample edit of the first few pages free of charge! Just ask!
Manuscript Evaluation and Beta Reading: $.0035 Per Word:
This is one of the first stages of revision. If you aren't ready to have your piece completely re-worked and just want a second opinion on the plot, characters, and general suggestions, this is the package for you. While it does not include line or content editing, we will read your manuscript and then send you extensive notes on how you can make your writing stronger.
Proofreading: $.0045 Per Word:
This is one of the final stages of editing and focuses on the polishing of language, grammar, punctuation, spelling, word choice, transitions, and sentence structure.
Copy Editing: $.0055 Per Word:
Copy Editing is a combination of beta reading and proofreading. This is the most common package, as it focuses on all details of the manuscript. We will check over plot and characterization as well fix grammar, punctuation, word choice, and make line edits. We will also provide comments in the margin of the manuscript for specific suggestions.
Second Read Through:
All second reads are half the price of the first (i.e. if your first edit cost $100.00, the second would cost $50.00).
Synopsis Editing: $35 Flat Rate:
If you have a rough draft of your synopsis or need suggestions for one you aren't sure about, we will do our best to make it clear, concise, and to the point. It is our goal to have people read your synopsis and grab your book!
If you have an essay, poetry collection, or individual short story, tell us about it and we will come up with an appropriate price.
Turn Around Time:
It typically takes around a month to complete a manuscript and we usually book about a month in advance. In general, we try to return the manuscripts as fast as possible depending on how long your work is and how many clients we have. Of course if you have a specific date you need your work back to you, let us know and we will make you a priority in order to get it done on time!
Let's be honest. We're writers; most of us are on a budget. That's why we only require a deposit of how ever much you want to/are able to pay when you send us your manuscript. Once we have your piece, you can either pay in increments as we edit your work or pay the entire remaining balance when we are finished with your work. We will always strive to make this process as simple and as feasible for each individual client as possible.
* A deposit is required before work can begin
*Completely edited manuscripts will be returned once the entire balance is paid
*We ONLY use PayPal for all transactions (if you would like to use a credit card, our business PayPal account allows us to do that as well!)
*We reserve the right to increase price if we determine that more work is necessary than the prices listed above would cover
