Romance Book Editor

 

The editing process consists of the following steps:

Developmental Editing

Line Editing

Copy Editing

Proofreading

An editor's job is to maintain the 4 Cs of editing: 

Clarity

Coherency

Consistency

Correctness

Editing goes beyond grammar corrections. What's more important than grammar, you ask? The right editor will help you with the following tasks:

querying factual information; smoothing the flow and pace of the manuscript; flagging inconsistencies, repetitions, faulty subject-verb agreement and the like; muddled content; syntax; tenses, appropriate language usage; better word choice and more. 

 

My role is to find the most effective language to tell the story…Your story! It sounds pretty simple, right? Well, actually, it can be tricky, hence why I am here to step in and help. Let’s be honest, if you don’t know your “there” from your “their”, then it’s not going to end well. That’s where I step in. 

​While my focus might be on the technical and mechanical aspects, you’ll still receive a fabulous dose of my feedback. That won’t stop me from swooning over your delicious characters or posting screenshots of hilarious in-the-moment reactions!

 

A proofread is highly recommended following this service to ensure better results. 

Editing rates start at $0.007/word*

[For a 50,000 word-manuscript, the cost will be $350]

Turnaround: 5-7 days*

Two rounds included.

I use The Chicago Manual of Style, The Copyeditor's Handbook, and The Merriam-Webster Dictionary as reference guides.

Rates and turnaround time frames are subjected to change based on difficulty level.

A manuscript evaluation isn’t exactly a beta service or developmental edit. It’s an offspring of both.

 

The detail-oriented editorial letter of your manuscript covers feedback on: structure, characters, genre familiarity, audience, voice,

pacing, and flow of the plot.

Starting at $0.0085/word.

Turnaround: 7 days.

Last-minute scheduling available for an additional charge.

Proofreading is the final step in the editing process. A proofread consists of checking for punctuation errors, grammatical issues, and minor formatting problems.

It is the final sweep of the document. 

I use The Chicago Manual of Style, The Copyeditor's Handbook, and The Merriam-Webster Dictionary as reference guides.

Starting at $0.004/word.

Turnaround: 2-3 days.

One pass only.
