Line by line copy editing for multiple genres, both fiction and nonfiction. This level of editing addresses word choices, paragraph flow, style issues, and general mechanics of grammar. I will also watch for any inconsistencies in the story (character names, scene details), but will not address larger issues that are typically part of substantive (developmental) editing. I do include a final proofread with all copy editing jobs. I use The Chicago Manual of Style as my primary style reference, and use Microsoft Track Changes for all editing marks.
I provide a free sample edit, and if after that step you decide you would like me to work with your story, I will ask you to complete an initial questionnaire. This will help us ensure your manuscript is ready for editing (which will save you money), and help be more efficient in our work together.
NOTE: I am completely booked for the month of October, and my editing docket is pretty full for the remainder of 2015. I will not be able to take on any long manuscripts (greater than 60,000 words), or jobs that need to be turned around in a hurry.
This package is for the author who wants to publish but has no idea where to start. Perhaps you’ve written a book and have no idea what to do with it, or you’re writing a book and want to map out a plan for your publishing journey. If you’re overwhelmed at the prospect of researching where to go, what to do, and how to do it, this package is for you.
For one flat fee, you’ll get three one-hour calls with me, and together we’ll develop a roadmap for you to follow as you bring your book to life. Click the link above for details and pricing.
I do take on a limited number of individual consulting clients — those who prefer a partner to walk with them through the process from start to finish. If you’d like more information on how this works, how much it costs, and whether it’s right for you, fill out the Project Inquiry Form below and tell me a bit about your project. I’ll get back to you right away and we can start the conversation.
