Copyediting

Now that your story is fully fleshed-out, with the five commandments in place for each scene, and all of the obligatory scenes and conventions of your genre are present, it is time to deal with that pesky thing we call grammar. Whether you need a human eye to catch what your spell and grammar check program missed, or intensive reworking to help with word choice, syntax, and flow, we can help!

To determine if I am the right fit for you, I offer a 1,500 word sample edit for full-length manuscripts. Request yours today!

Quick Clean Up

Cost: $0.01/word

With a quick clean up, I will edit for grammatical and mechanical correctness in your manuscript. Unlike a light copyedit, this includes only one round of editing and no style sheet.

Light Copyedit

Cost: $0.02/word

With a light copyedit, I will edit for grammatical and mechanical correctness and consistency throughout your manuscript. A style sheet and two rounds of editing the manuscript, with the author reviewing all changes after each round are included.

Medium Copyedit

Cost: $0.026/word

With a medium copyedit, I will check for consistency of timeline, character details, and story logic. I will also note unfamiliar words which may require defining, and infelicitous use of terms, in addition to editing for grammatical and mechanical correctness and consistency throughout your manuscript. A style sheet and two rounds of editing the manuscript, with the author reviewing all changes after each round are included.

Heavy Copyedit

Cost: $0.03/word

This service is essential when you need to reduce your word count, clean up your prose, or even ensure the coherency of your writing for authors whose native language is not English.

Heavy copyediting combines copyediting with a service known as “line editing”. I will do everything included in light and medium copyediting in addition to revising passages to correct infelicities, wordiness, and tone issues. A style sheet and two rounds of editing the manuscript, with the author reviewing all changes after each round are included.
