Affordable Editing

I offer extremely affordable line editing which includes a review of grammar, spelling, and punctuation. As I am reading, I will flag awkward sentences, confusing phrasing, and inconsistencies. All manuscripts must be submitted in Microsoft Word or Google Docs (unless other arrangements are made in advance). Because it is your manuscript, I will not make any changes to your work. Instead, I will utilize the “Comment” feature to suggest changes. It is up to you to accept or reject any changes I suggest. In addition to line edits, I will also send you a brief critique of your manuscript.

Pricing information: $2.00 per 1000 words ($10 minimum). For example, a 30,000 word manuscript would cost $60. For manuscripts exceeding 50,000 words, please ask me about special pricing. Contact me if you would like to receive a free sample edit on the first few pages of your manuscript.

Payment information: I accept payment via Paypal unless other arrangements are made in advance. I will ask for a deposit of half before I begin working on your manuscript. Full payment is due upon delivery of completed edits. If affordability is an issue and you need to set up an alternative payment plan, do not hesitate to contact me. Money should never be an obstacle to publication. I believe every author deserves to have his or her story told and every book deserves a thorough edit.

Other considerations: I can work within almost any time frame. For documents under 10,000 words, please allow 1 to 3 business days. For longer manuscripts, please allow 2 to 3 business days per 10,000 words. If I have a heavy workload, I will let you know in advance before taking on your project. If you have an extremely tight deadline, please let me know and I’ll do whatever I can to help you.
