Book Editing Services

Book Editing Services

The following editing services are for completed manuscripts that have been well revised and are being prepared for publication.  If you’re in the earlier stages of writing, then you may benefit from one of my critique and mentoring services.

The prices below are a guide only.  Each project is assessed individually. If I feel I am a good fit for your manuscript, I will perform a free 3 page sample edit and provide you with a quote based on the extent of editing required.

Content Edit

Editing of the ‘big picture’ elements that hold a story together. This edit checks for plot development, characterisation, character development, GMC (goal, motivation & conflict), POV (point of view), genre relevance, plausibility, settings, chapter openings and endings, scene structures and sequencing, a satisfying ending, and more.

This edit is returned in the form of a detailed report.  There may be some comments or directions in the manuscript, but no line-by-line editing is performed.

Cost: $16 – $30 per 1000 words

Line Edit

This focuses on the finer elements of writing—grammar, sentence clarity, word choice, repetition, over and under explanation, dialogue, showing vs telling, consistency, and more. Style sheets are generated and provided in addition to edits and comments which are performed in-manuscript with Microsoft Word Track Changes.
