DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING

I’ll search your manuscript line by line to find pesky cliches, duplicate words, spelling and grammatical errors, passive voice, and glaring plot holes. You’ll receive a report back on overall tone and structure of your manuscript and I’ll make suggestions while still helping you keep your voice throughout your story or nonfiction work.

HOW THIS WORKS

  • Contact me via the form on this website with what type of edits or consultation you’re looking for for this project, plus the word count.
  • I will ask for a copy of the manuscript via Word Doc and get back to you in a jiffy with a quote for my editing services (see note on word count).
  • If the fee is acceptable, I will invoice you through PayPal for 50% of the balance if it is over $100.00. Amounts under $100.00 will be invoiced in full.
  • Once the deposit is received, I will edit and critique your project. This process may take up to four weeks depending on the size of the project.
  • When finished with my edits, I will email you the status of the work and invoice you for the final amount, if needed.
  • Once payment is complete, I will send the edited project with notes. Track Changes will be used within the document.
  • You dominate the literary world.

NOTES

To avoid any conflict of interest as an agent with Red Sofa Literary, I will be unable to consider manuscripts that I have worked on as an editor.

One page equals two hundred and fifty words.
