Here’s the information you’re really here for! I know you were just dying to learn all about me, and now that you have, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty.
I’ve outlined my services with an explanation of what’s included in each and included my rates so that you have everything you need in order to decide if you feel like I’d be a good fit for you.
Let’s get into it!
I offer line editing, copy editing, and proofreading for children’s picture books, children’s chapter books, and novels.
Note that line editing, copy editing, and proofreading should come AFTER developmental editing. A developmental editor will focus on the story as a whole – the big picture. A DE will help you with plot, character development, setting, pace, narrative, point of view, etc.
After you’ve worked with a developmental editor, you’ll be ready for line editing and copy editing, which is where I come in!
Below, I’ve outlined what each entails in detail (hey, I rhymed!).
Children’s picture books
Line Editing and Copy Editing
Starts at $0.016 per word.
Includes one pass.
Does not include proofreading.
These are base prices taking in account word count only. Based on the sample provided and the timeline needed, I will give you a more accurate estimate on the investment.
The investment for proofreading starts at $0.013 per word.
Includes one pass.
I offer a free sample edit/proofread of five pages from your manuscript so that I can see your writing style and you can see my editing style. This allows us to see if we feel like we’d be a good fit. The pages should be consecutive, double-spaced, and sent in a Word document.
Payments are made through PayPal or Zelle. For PayPal, I will need the email address attached to your PayPal account so that I can send the invoice.
Upon signing the contract, 50% of the payment is required in order for editing to begin, 25% is required after editing is done, and the remaining 25% is due after final proofreading, before manuscript is returned.
I’m happy to discuss other payment plans with you as well.
What I Do Not Offer
I do not offer rewriting, co-writing, ghostwriting, fact-checking, researching, or marketing services.
I do not answer questions about publishing, formatting, or marketing. These are not my areas of expertise, and therefore, I cannot confidently answer questions about them. I do, however, have contacts that I can refer authors to that can properly help with the publishing process, whether it be traditional publishing or self-publishing. They provide services such as illustrations, formatting, book designing, cover designing, and more.
If you have any other questions that may not have been discussed on this page, feel free to send me an email and I’d be happy to discuss your project with you and answer any questions you have. 🙂
