Everyone needs an extra set of eyes on their work from time to time, and I’m more than willing to be those eyes for you.
Over the course of the last five years, I’ve edited dozens of full and partial manuscripts for writers of varying levels of experience. If you’re looking for an editor with a sharp eye for detail and a focus on readability, I’m your guy. And you don’t have to just take my word for it.
As an editor, I specialize in the below genres:
- Speculative Fiction
Even if your genre isn’t listed above, feel free to reach out. If you’ve got a premise full of promise, I still may be able to assist.
The details of the services I offer can be found below. If you’re still not sure which level might be right for you after reading them, get in touch and we can discuss what may work best.
Please note that all prices are in USD.
If I’ve worked with you before as a beta reader, you’re eligible to receive a 10% discount on any of the below-listed services.
The First Ten Pages
Before choosing any of the below services, I’ll take a look at your manuscript’s first ten pages free of charge.* If you feel you’d like similar feedback on more of your work, and if I feel your manuscript would be a good fit, then we can get to chatting about what level of service might be best for you.
Want a free consultation on your manuscript’s first ten pages? Let me know here.
Fifty for Fifty
The Fifty for Fifty service includes an assessment of your first fifty pages, returned to you in a two-to-three page Google Doc report that includes a full analysis of:
- three to five strengths
- three to five opportunities for strengthening
- comments on style and prose mechanics
Aside from this report, we’ll discuss the feedback in a half hour conversation conducted via Zoom or Skype. This will be your chance to ask questions, and for the two of us to bounce ideas off of one another for what might come next.
All of this is included in the Fifty for Fifty service at the best-value price of—you guessed it—$50 ($0.004 cents/word).**
Please note that the Fifty for Fifty service does not include in-line comments.
Let’s take your first fifty pages to the next level. Take the first step toward leveling-up here.
If you’re ready for a full or partial review of your manuscript beyond the first fifty pages, then a manuscript assessment may be what you’re looking for.
The Manuscript Assessment includes a three-to-five page Google Docs report featuring a full analysis of:
- three to seven strengths
- three to seven opportunities for strengthening
- comments on style and prose mechanics
Aside from this report, we’ll discuss the feedback in a half hour (partial manuscript) or hour (full manuscript) conversation conducted via Zoom or Skype. This will be your chance to ask questions, and for the two of us to bounce ideas off of one another for what might come next.
This service is available to you for $0.005/word (i.e. $400 for 80,000 words).
Please note that the Manuscript Assessment service does not include in-line comments.
I’m ready to help turn your manuscript up a notch. Let’s crank it up to eleven here.
The Assessment Plus! service includes everything featured in the the Manuscript Assessment level, plus in-line comments on any of the below as necessary.
- Awkward or unnatural phrasing
- Shows versus tells
- Suggested rephrasings
- Dialogue and dialogue tags
- Immediate scenes versus narrative summary
- Proportion in character and scene description versus plot advancement
- Almost anything you can find in my Write With Me series!
Not only that, but this level of service includes first-time impressions of your work as I read. This gives you a sneak peek at how readers may react on a scene-by-scene, chapter-by-chapter basis.
All of the above figures into the Assessment Plus! service for the price of $0.007/word (i.e. $560 for 80,000 words).
You know your novel is worth reading. Let’s starting proving it to the world here.
*Any writer who takes advantage of the free consultation but ultimately elects to proceed with a billable service will be charged for the work done on the first ten pages in accordance with the level of service selected. If a writer receives a consultation but ultimately decides against another level of service, no fee will be charged.
**Any writer who begins with the Fifty for Fifty service but later proceeds with either the Manuscript Assessment or Assessment Plus! options will be billed in accordance with their newly selected level of service plus a $20 flat fee.
