The services I provide:
Developmental Editing (For Romance Novels only):
Includes a review of…
- overall story structure
- character GMC
- inner character growth
Also includes stylistic editing:
- identifying areas that can be changed for deeper POV
- rewording of awkward or confusing sentences
- suggestions for improving passive writing
Includes checks for consistency, grammar usage, punctuation, typos, etc.
Comprehensive Editing Package:
Includes both developmental editing and copy editing.
Note: Research of story subject matter isn’t included in any of these services.
Payments will be made through PayPal in two installments. 50% up front and 50% after the first round of editing is complete.
The cost will be agreed upon before I begin and is based on how much time will be needed to complete the work, estimated from seeing a sample from your manuscript.
The manuscript should be saved as an electronic Microsoft Word document in 12-point Times New Roman font, double-spaced, with one-inch side margins, and indented paragraphs. Track Changes will be used in the editing process.
