Developmental Editing

$2 USD per page

This is the most extensive editing and comes first before any other form of editing. DE goes over structure, con­tent, voice, and the audience of your book. I make sure it all flows well and makes sense without any plot holes, and I find ways to keep the pacing just right. I  look over the character development as well as story development. It is important to me that we stay true to your style and your story. As an editor, I merely make suggestions, but it is up to you as the writer whether or not you wish to implement them.

Turn around time depends on length of novel. How I work is entirely up to you whether you want me to edit and give you my progress in chunks or to wait to give you the entire manuscript when I am finished with my edits. 

Line Editing

$300 for the first 250 pgs. 

$1 per page after that

This comes in second in the editing process. I edit sentence-by-sentence to ensure the prose is strong while keeping the craft in mind (as well as your style of writing). It perfects your manuscript's clarity and style. A line editor helps the writer to convey their story in the most effective way to the reader. A story can have a great plot but fall short by poor execution of writing. That is where a line editor comes in.

Proofreading

$150 for the first 250 pgs. 

$0.50 per page after that

This is the last phase of editing you will do. A proofreader goes over the grammar, spelling, syntax, etc. in order to make sure your novel is perfectly polished and ready to go.
