I’m available for freelance editorial work for writers, publishers, and/or literary agents. With over 8 years of professional editing experience under my belt, I’d be happy to work with you on a variety of services, including in-depth manuscript critiques and/or line edits for full manuscripts or first pages; query letter critiques; synopsis/proposal critiques; reader’s reports (for publishers and agents); work-for-hire writing projects; and more.
A brief rundown of the services I offer for writers:
Developmental Edit – Ideal for early drafts, this service involves an overview critique of your manuscript to help you focus your revision on the overall macro areas for improvement. Available for first pages (up to 25 pages; $300 flat fee) or full manuscript.
In-Depth Overall Edit – I will provide an in-depth editorial letter addressing both macro and micro areas for improvement, including, but not limited to: overall plot, pacing, characterization, voice, etc.
In-Depth Line Edit – An in-depth edit within the pages of your manuscript (using tracked changes and comment bubbles), focusing on the line level writing as well as overall questions/comments. Available for first pages (up to 25 pages; $350 flat fee) or full manuscript.
Query Letter Edit – A critique and edit of your query letter to help you distill your story into its essence, crafting a compelling pitch for your manuscript and yourself. $250 flat fee.
Synopsis/Proposal Edit - A critique and edit of your synopsis/proposal, outlining your story’s plot in one engaging document. $250 flat fee.
