1. What genres do you edit?
While my skills allow me to edit anything that comes across my desk, my specialties are science-fiction, fantasy, and thrillers.
2. How much does editing cost?
Rates vary depending on the type of editing you’re looking at and the length of your manuscript. A manuscript critique may cost $300 while heavy line editing may cost $2000. Email me for a personalized project quote.
3. What type of editing do I need?
It’s impossible to determine what type of editing you’d most benefit from without seeing a sample of your work. If you’re interested in a free sample edit, submit a 1,000 word sample and your questions. We’ll go from there!
4. Why do I need an editor?
Editors are highly-trained professionals with years of experience in the publishing industry. Our attention to detail and industry-specific knowledge will polish your manuscript and get it ready for publication.
5. How far in advance do I need to book editing services?
It’s best to reserve your spot five weeks in advance. For example, if you know you’ll be ready for an editor in March, reach out no earlier than the first week of February to discuss my availability.
6. Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! Editing is a necessary investment, but I know your budget might be limited. I require a deposit upon booking, and then we can split your remaining balance into weekly or bi-weekly payments. The full project balance must be paid no later than one month after project completion. If you’re interested in a payment plan, please let me know when you inquire about my availability.
