Developmental Content Edit  - $1 per page

 

Developmental notes will focus on a number of things including but not limited to: plot, characterization, world-building (especially for fantasy and scifi), structure, consistency of voice, and dialogue. This critique alone is not meant to finalize your draft, but to provide a fresh set of eyes regarding the overall quality of your content. 
 
This translates roughly to $250-$325 for a 60-80k novel.
Copy / Line Editing - $2-3 per page

 

This type of edit focuses specifically on grammar, punctuation, syntax, and word choice. I will make appropriate changes using the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word, and use the margin notation feature to highlight any change that requires a choice on your part. After you have reviewed my initial changes and made any final alterations of your own, I will read through the manuscript a final time to polish out any remaining errors.
 
Each project is different, and so too the amount of time necessary to edit. I will look at your piece and quote an exact price before I begin. Typically, this falls between fall between $500-$1000 for a 60-80k novel. Authors of short stories and MG are welcome to combine works to meet the minimum total.
Full Edit - $3-4 per page

 

This includes both developmental and copy/line editing.
