I’m now open to freelance editing! It never hurts to have an extra pair of eyes on your manuscript, query, or synopsis. When I was querying, hiring a freelance editor made all the difference. I went from around 100 rejections with one project, to an offer of representation within hours of querying a new project that I’d worked on with an editor. Good editors help you find inconsistencies in your novel. They help you find plot holes and weak writing, and show you in detail the areas you can improve. Working with an editor can greatly improve your manuscript, and make your work more agent-ready.

Reader Report .014 cents per word
These are my favorite, and by far my most popular service! In the past 2.5 years, I’ve done over 100 reader reports. They’re usually a 7-10+ page single spaced report detailing feedback on your plot, pacing, characters, setting, world build, etc. This will give you overall developmental feedback on your entire manuscript, without the line edits. We’ll discuss editorial ideas, the manuscript’s strengths, and ares where it can improve. This is a developmental edit.
Line Edit .025 cents per word
Includes an edit letter (usually 6+ pages) detailing the strengths and weaknesses in your manuscript. Includes detailed line edits and notes within the documents. I’m an incredibly thorough editor when it comes to line edits; you can pretty much guarantee every page will be marked up. This is a more detailed option than the reader report, and is not right for anyone who is looking at making heavy structural edits. This is for someone who has probably already had their work reviewed by a beta or critique partner, or believes their overall structure and plot is mostly working. I go heavy into details with my edits and assess the story on a line-by-line basis, looking for inconsistencies, punctuation and grammar issues, and funky sentences that can be strengthened. I also help assess the story as a whole, to help get the work ready to send to agents or publishers.
