Editing

As a super admin at Booked All Night, a former Media Editor, and a former Managing Editorial intern, I hold a lot of editing and workshop expertise. I am thorough; I am a writer myself and I understand the importance of productive and critical feedback when approaching the work of others.

But you’re a writer too and chances are you have your own degree and qualifications. So why get an editor? That’s easy: we tend to read over mistakes in our own work and often cling to the original wording and plot line because nothing can beat the original. A fresh set of eyes will help your work get better, both microcosmically (grammar, punctuation) and macrocosmically (plot holes, inconsistent characterization).

When formatting manuscripts for editing please double space.

Manuscript Eval

I will read through your manuscript and take care to look at your punctuation, spelling, grammar, syntax, flow, style, and structure. In all cases, I will review structure, dialogue, characterization, POV, pacing, and many other elements of craft. You will then receive a written critique detailing my first impressions of your manuscript.

Developmental Editing

In this service I will focus on your logical structure, your style choices, and the flow of your content in the effort to make your manuscript clear and easy to read. A developmental edit is looking for macrocosmic errors including but not limited to plot holes, world building issues, and consistent voice.

$40 per 5 pages / $50 per hour

Copy Editing

Copy editing is fairly surface level. In this level, I am simply looking at your spelling, grammar, punctuation, and a few mechanics of style. At this level I am looking for consistency in style and format.

$30 per 10 pages / $40 per hour
