Editing Services

When you have edited your work, and just before you are ready to publish it, I will check it for typos, grammatical and other errors and correct them.

The focus here will be on checking and correcting grammar, spelling and organizing content. Gaps in research may also be filled.

Manuscript Line Editing Rate –  $.04 per word

I will analyze your manuscript and make suggestions in terms of word choice, content and organization of that content i. e. streamlining your story.

If you have an idea but you are having difficulty fleshing it out, I am here for you. Let me help you fill in the gaps and structure your story (fiction or nonfiction) to engage the reader.

In addition, a 45 minute call via your preferred online medium is included in this package.
