Services & Rates

Proofreading - $1.50 per page

This is the final step before a manuscript is published. Normally the work has already been reviewed by a developmental editor and a copy editor, so most errors have already been found and fixed. Proofreading is done to catch any remaining errors that have slipped by such as missed periods, extra spaces, and omitted words.

Copyediting - $2.00 per page

During a copyedit, mechanical inconsistencies in the manuscript are repaired. This includes spelling, hyphenation, capitalization, punctuation, italics, bold type, and treatment of numbers and quotations.

Content Editing - $2.25 per page

This service would best be described as a light developmental edit. At this level, Your Fiction Editor will look for structural, organizational, and point of view issues in your story and point out any inconsistencies. This edit addresses the overall flow of your writing, which includes the cohesion and coherence between sentences and paragraphs. Did you go off on a tangent for two pages that is not necessary to the story arc? Were your character’s eyes blue on page five and then green on page twenty? Did your character use their last bullet and then forget to reload? Were we in the hero’s head in chapter five but you head-hopped into some other character’s head in a few of your paragraphs? Did you dump too much information into chapter one? How could those details be better utilized and more strategically placed into your story as it goes along? These are the kinds of elements that are addressed here.
