BOOK-EDITING PACKAGE

$5,000 USD

If you have a completed manuscript that needs some prepublishing polish, you've come to the right place.

WHAT IS THE BOOK-EDITING PACKAGE?

This package is for writers who have a finished manuscript and who need help with any of these things: 

  • Checking and fixing character arcs, plot, structure, logic, argument, supporting evidence, etc. (developmental editing)

  • Checking and fixing flow, tone, cohesion, diction, etc., in the manuscript (line/substantive editing)

  • Checking and fixing grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. (copyediting)

  • Checking for typos (proofreading)

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Of course, each writer and each manuscript is different. But in general, here's how it works:

  • I perform the developmental editing in Microsoft Word with Track Changes on.

  • I write you a summary of any patterns of issues I’ve found.

  • We have a one-hour phone chat to review the patterns and resolve any big questions.

  • You take up to one week to make the major revisions.

  • I review and incorporate your changes and perform the substantive editing.

  • I subcontract the copyediting and proofreading to other professional editors so you have multiple sets of eyes on your manuscript.

  • I review the copyeditor’s and the proofreader’s work and run your manuscript through several automated checkers to catch any errors that have slipped through.
