Freelance Editing

Freelance Editing

Alongside general proofreading and copyediting, I offer freelance editing to help other writers and authors refine their work.

Developmental Editing

This is where I provide big picture feedback on your manuscript, reviewing larger scope elements of your story, such as plot logic and pacing, character development, narrative voice, and the like. It involves a chapter-by-chapter breakdown of what works in your story as-is and what needs work in order to make your manuscript as strong as possible.

$25/hour (averaging 10 hours for up to 80,000 words)

 

Copyediting

This is done after major developmental edits and revisions have taken place. I take a more intensive, paragraph-by-paragraph look at the manuscript, searching for awkward phrasing, wordiness, continuity errors, technical consistency, and overall cohesiveness.

$.01-.015 cents/word depending on manuscript length and due date

 

Proofreading

This is a basic line-by-line review of a manuscript that is almost ready to go out the door for publication. I fix any technical errors (spelling, grammar, etc.) or other small mistakes that were overlooked up to this point. Think of it as a final quality assurance test.

$1.00/page (average 10 pages/hr) – Standard page format is 8.5 x 11, Times New Roman, Double Spaced
