Manuscript Critique

You're ready to start submitting your novel to publishing houses, agents, and editors . . . but is your manuscript? If your answer is "I'm not sure," a manuscript critique might be the next step for you. I will provide detailed feedback regarding plot, character development, dialogue, prose, conflict, strengths, weaknesses, and overall quality.

1-199 pages: $2.50/page
200+ pages: $1.75/page

Line/Developmental Editing Services

You've decided either to self-publish your novel or have it professionally edited before submitting to agents or publishing houses. Congratulations! I offer full line and developmental editing services. In addition to grammar, spelling, and punctuation, I will devote my full attention to your plot, character development, dialogue, prose, conflict, strengths, weaknesses, syntax, and flow.

Proofreading

Your manuscript has been fully edited and you've either found a publishing home or have decided to move forward with self-publishing, but you want one more set of eyes to check for those pesky typos. Not only will I find and correct spelling, punctuation, or grammatical errors, I will point out easy ways to increase readability, clarity, and flow.
