.0040 per word for Proofreading
Proofreading is done on a final draft and includes line-by-line correction of spelling, grammar, and minor sentence structure issues. This does not include major content restructuring, nor does it include a 2nd proofread after the author has accepted edits.
Content Editing with Proofreading:
.0075 per word for Content Editing with Proofreading
This is the absolute best value for a complete and thorough edit of your manuscript. Once the manuscript has been edited, and any changes the author wishes to make are complete, it is returned to me for a final proofread.
This package includes:
*Two to three editing passes
*Check for grammar, punctuation, and spelling mistakes
*Character analysis–Do they act their age? Does their dialogue read true to their individual character? Are the characters easily visualized by readers?
*Check of overall plot–Does it read well? Is there anything missing that might confuse the reader? Is the timeline correct?
*Overused phrases and words, in the content and as paragraph starters
*Any reactions I have throughout the story, I’ll tell you in a comment. If you break my heart, shock me into silence, or make me burst out laughing, I want you to know–and I’m sure you want to know.
Content Editing with a final Proofread offers the most polished final product.
Blurbs and teasers are included with any service I provide and will be treated with the same care as the full manuscript.
