EDITING & PROOFREADING
Editing and proofreading to help you put your best work forward, presented to the world with words that flow and capture the minds of every reader who holds your books.
As your editor and proofreader, it is my priority to help you publish a book you can be proud of.
Line Editing: $0.02/word
As your line editor, I help to ensure your book makes a good impression on new readers and keeps existing fans scrambling to grab a copy of your latest book release.
It is my priority as your line editor to give your book the best care possible, presenting you with an expertly edited manuscript.
I use the Track Changes and Comments feature in MS Word so you can see every change I make. This is also where you can find my comments and explanations.
Elements of the LINE edit include:
Sentence, word, and grammar level issues
Awkward phrasing, comma issues
Consistency and continuity errors
Punctuation and formatting per style guide
Clarity and sound
Looking for a meticulous proofreader? Look no further!
With a keen eye for detail and systematic approach, I will help you take your manuscript one step closer to being publication-ready. The proofreading stage looks for the following:
Grammar, spelling, and punctuation issues
Usage errors, clarity
Missing words, double words
Missing quotation marks
Final Pass: $0.005/word
You’re almost there!
Your manuscript has been through copyediting and proofreading, you’ve read it so many times you’ve practically memorized it, and you’re almost ready to hit publish…but you know you’d feel better putting it through one final pass before it goes live.
That’s where the Final Pass comes in. The Final Pass gives you the peace of mind you’re looking for so you can relax, knowing you’re putting your best work out there. It’s no wonder this is my most popular service!
The Final Pass IS:
a final polish on your book
peace of mind knowing your manuscript is truly ready for the world
aimed at catching embarrassing errors that were missed during previous passes or accidentally inserted during last minute tweaks
The Final Pass is NOT:
meant to replace a copyedit or proofread. It’s a last pass to check for those pesky typos that always manage to slip through
Scope of Work:
The Final Pass looks for missing words, misspellings, typos, obvious punctuation errors (such as double periods or missing punctuation).
Please note: If at any time I feel your book needs more than a Final Pass, I will do my best to notify you as soon as possible. You will receive a report on the part of your manuscript that did go through the Final Pass. Remember, the Final Pass is not meant to replace editing or proofreading.
Hyphenation issues are not specifically addressed.
Final Pass FAQs:
What if my book is already published? If your book is independently published and you’re worried there are lingering typos or errors, don’t worry! It’s still a candidate for the Final Pass.
How long will it take to get my Final Pass report? The average pace for a Final Pass is 20k words per day from the day I start on your manuscript plus an added day to compile your report.
What if I’m on a deadline and need it done faster? Priority status is available for an additional cost.
Preferred genres include suspense/thriller, mystery, sci-fi, fantasy, litRPG, urban fantasy, horror, rom-com, historical fiction, contemporary fiction, YA, memoir, and nonfiction.
