Make the perfect first impression for agents or publishers with a polished query critique.
Having trouble effectively summarizing your entire manuscript into a couple of pages? Then you need synopsis help.
GENERAL IMPRESSIONS CRITIQUE
My professional opinion/ beta read of your entire manuscript includes all major observations of what you have done well and what needs more work, with helpful suggestions. You will receive an editorial letter. (These can run several pages). Nothing is marked directly on the manuscript.
Under 40,000 words $199
40,000-70,000 words $249
70,000-100,000 words $299
For over 100,000 words, ask for a quote.
Make sure that your entire manuscript is polished and sparkling.This will correct grammar, punctuation, and make sure that your copy is clean. A letter will accompany the edits, but not in as much detail as the manuscript critique. Any changes that are made will be minimal to what you have written, to preserve your own style. The manuscript will be corrected, but not substantially changed.
$3.00 per page (standard double-spaced)
Want to see what was changed on your manuscript so you can learn from the experience? As above, the manuscript will be directly marked, but this time it will usually be in red, unless you prefer an underline or another mark, to show you what has been changed.
$4.00 per page (It takes longer to change the font on each individual edit.)
REWRITES/ STAR TREATMENT
The extra special treatment of your manuscript… It involves me not only correcting the work, as in line edits, but more intensively rewriting passages so that they read stronger. Each manuscript is unique in how much needs to be redone. Your scenes will not be rearranged, nor your plot changed. But sentences may be rewritten, rather than simply corrected. In addition to being an editor, I am an award-winning writer and an Amazon international multi-bestselling author with a PhD in History.
4 Cents per word ($0.04) for the word count of your entire manuscript
