I may not be able to guarantee you rep BUT I can guarantee you will put your best book forward!
With 13 years of publishing experience, I am now offering my editorial services to all female authors! My specialty has always been reality-based, girl-centric YA–I believe in truthful storytelling, even if/when hard to tell/read. But I also enjoy awkward, goofy, light-hearted romances (including chick lit or beach reads) and fun-filled adventures as well as bone-chilling, spooky stories and quirky paranormal or fantastical tales.
- Query Letter
Query letters are a different animal than the actual book. They can be hard to write. Let me help you polish yours! (Trust me, I’ve read plenty–I know what works/what doesn’t!) For $175 flat, I’ll help you suss out the vital info.
- Developmental Read (Partials and Fulls)
This is my favorite kind of edit–looking at character, dialogue, plot, and pacing. A good developmental read might cut/rearrange/entirely reshape the manuscript; it can be hard for authors to accept this criticism but it will make a stronger book. (However, if your manuscript is already great, this read confirms it–not much work will need to be done/suggested.) A developmental read is pretty much the last read you need before a copy edit/proofread. All of this is done via Track Changes within the manuscript.
(Partial reads are at least 50 pages for $.020/per word and fulls are $800 flat. On average, fulls give you more value for your money…)
- Developmental Read (Ideas Week Discount)
If you choose an idea from my ‘ideas week’ on Tumblr, I give a 50% discount! (So the total is split in half. Only $400 for a full!)
- Developmental Read (Short Stories, Essays, and Articles)
I will help you edit your shorter fiction or shorter nf for .020/per word.
- Light Proofreading
I am by no means a ‘proofreader’ from a publishing house so I am offering light proofreading–ensuring there are no spelling or punctuation mistakes–for $30/hour total due upon completion.
- Brainstorming sessions cost a $20 flat fee.
I realize this is an investment and therefore can work with you regarding payment, if need be; however, no matter what price is discussed, flat fees are paid upfront. (Also, if you don’t see a service you need, please email/ask!)
REMEMBER, YOU ARE THE BOSS HERE AND THESE ARE JUST MY SUGGESTIONS–YOU CAN TAKE ‘EM OR LEAVE ‘EM AS YOU SEE FIT.
