We offer a variety of services from proofreading to content editing as well as packaged services. Please contact us for more information if you don’t see exactly what you want.

Proofreading ~ $0.0015 per word
100,000 = $150
75,000 = $112.50
50,000 = $75
20,000 = $30

Editing Line ~ $0.0025 per word
100,000 = $250
75,000 = $187.50
50,000 = $125
20,000 = $50
10,000 = $25

This is a basic line by line review of the manuscript. It will look at typos, missing words, inconsistencies of all aspects, grammar issues and any other possible issues that may occur such as sentence fragments or structure. It will not include any plotting issues unless they are glaring. They will only be mentioned in comments.

Editing Content ~ $0.0030 per word
100,000 = $300
75,000 = $225
50,000 = $150
20,000 = $60
10,000 = $30

This is our most comprehensive edit and will be done only when your story is completed. Content edits are where major structural changes can occur to a story. This is where plot problems are noted. Things like point of view inconsistencies, awkward sentences or dialogue and character development are evaluated. Also included are pacing, style and anything noticed that would drag the manuscript down such as repeated or overused words. We note run-on sentences, clarity and flow and will even do basic fact checking especially if it pulls us out of the story.

NOTE: All editing is done via track changes on Word. You send us your manuscript and we send back an edited manuscript with comments as well as changes listed throughout the manuscript as needed. If you are getting proofreading only, and this means that the manuscript has thoroughly been edited by us or someone else, you will get a copy with track changes and a copy with those changes already made. Remember, proofreading is the LAST item to be done before publication and your book should reflect that effort. Should we find that your book is not at a proofreading level, we will discuss the options with you at that time.
