Manuscript Critique

 

A critique will help you get a sense of the bigger picture of what is working and what isn't in your story. This is similar to a developmental (or structural) edit, but without the hefty price tag. You will get in-line comments on your manuscript, a full reader report on what is working, what is not, and how your story can be improved.

This report will consider:

  • plot

  • structure

  • characters and their arcs

  • world building and setting

  • themes

  • pacing

  • point of view

  • voice

  • any concerns you may have

  • resources for further study

Typical turnaround time depends on the length and condition of manuscript. $0.012 per word.

Copyedit

 

What most people think about when it comes to editing is the copyedit. This edit will fix things like spelling, grammar, punctuation, and all that confusing stuff. I also flag any awkward sentences and make suggestions for clarity. 
 

Typical turnaround time depends on the length and condition of manuscript. $0.0065 per word.

Proofread

Before you hit publish, it's a good idea to get a final pair of eyes to check for any last minute errors. A proofread will ensure that there are no extra words and everything is spelled correctly. This is the final step before publishing your manuscript or sending it off to an agent. 

$0.005 per word.
