Editing Services

Structural Editing
This is similar to a manuscript critique, but more detailed.  You'll receive a letter addressing issues within your work such as plot, pacing, voice and structure. I may recommend significant changes, like altering characters or adding a subplot, but the final decisions of what to do are always yours. My goal is to help you make your story more powerful and intriguing.


I'm happy to read works of any length, but please note, there is a $50 minimum charge per piece.


The rate for Structural Editing is 1 cent per word, based on Microsoft Word 2013 word count.

Line Editing
This type of edit is more concerned with the actual language of your project. This is a line-by-line edit aimed at improving the grammar and readability of your prose. I will also look for typos and misspelled words and point out sections that may be unclear in their meaning. For this I use Track Changes in MS Word as well as the comment function.


The rate for Line Editing is 2 cents per word, based on Microsoft Word 2013 word count.  If we have already worked together on a structural edit for the same project, this service is available at 1.5 cents per word.


Anthology Editing

Depends on the scope of the project.
