As a fellow author, I completely understand how frustrating it can be to find an editor to work with that will fit your budget.  My goal is to help my fellow authors without breaking their bank!  If you’re interested in working with me, check out the editing services I offer to figure out which will best suit your needs.  To contact me about any of my editing services or to request a FREE sample edit, reach out at booksbysr@gmail.com.

 

Rough Draft Overview:

This is a big-picture edit for the rough draft of your novel.  I will read through your manuscript once and will provide general thoughts and comments on the story.  This is an important first step to making sure your story has a good base to build on.

The flat rate for books 40,000 words and under = $20.  For books longer than that, the price is an additional $0.50 per 1,000 words.  So a 60,000 word novel would = $30.

 

Proofreading:

My proofreading package is combing through your novel to tighten up grammar and sentence structure issues.  It’s a line-by-line cleanup of your story.

The flat rate for books 40,000 words and under = $40.  For books longer than that, the price is an additional $1 per 1,000 words.  So a 60,000 word novel would = $60.

*If your novel exceeds 100,000 words, you’ll receive a discount of $0.25 per 1,000 words.

 

Developmental Editing:

A developmental edit is a more in-depth look into your manuscript to take it to the next level.  I will read through your book twice and make notes on your characters, setting, plot, and how well the story flows.  You will receive multiple notes on every single aspect of your story, and I’ll include an overview at the end of each chapter.  I’ll also provide final thoughts and suggestions at the end of the book.  This will help you figure out what works and what doesn’t in your story, as well as if your characters need to be fleshed out better, if your story world needs more (or less) detail, if there are any plot holes that need repairing, and how the pacing of your story events works in the grand scheme of things.

The flat rate for books 40,000 words and under = $80.  For books longer than that, the price is an additional $2 per 1,000 words.  So a 60,000 word novel would = $120.

*If you do an initial developmental edit with me and decide you’d like another one after you revise your manuscript, I will be willing to read through the book a third time for $50.

**If your novel exceeds 100,000 words, you’ll receive a discount of $0.50 per 1,000 words.

 

Line Edit:

A Line Edit (aka Copy Edit) is my most in-depth package.  It’s the equivalent of a Proofread and a Developmental Edit rolled into one.  I’ll give line-by-line thoughts and edits on your entire novel.

The flat rate for books 40,000 words and under = $100.  For books longer than that, the price is an additional $2.50 per 1,000 words.  So a 60,000 word novel would = $150.

*If your novel exceeds 100,000 words, you’ll receive a discount of $0.50 per 1,000 words.
