This service is for a single-round edit on your manuscript. Both partials and fulls follow the same rate and basic procedure.

A partial, or partial manuscript, is any fraction of the manuscript that is not the full. I charge by the word, since page counts vary depending on spacing, font, and size of the type. A full manuscript is exactly what it sounds like, the entire 100% of the manuscript.

With all edits, I’ll include in-line comments using Word’s Track Changes feature. If you book a full manuscript edit or a partial edit of more than 15,000 words, I’ll also write up an editorial letter, focusing on more general areas to strengthen, like characters, plot, and prose techniques. I’m also happy to give feedback on specific areas of concern: for example, if you’re worried your scene transitions are too abrupt or that your pacing lags, I’m also happy to address those issues in the edit letter as well.

My critique for this type of edit is generally more developmental than line-level– I’ll focus more on big picture issues, though I’ll also add in suggestions for prose as they come up.

Doing a partial edit (usually the first 20,000 words or first few chapters) with me is also a good way to establish if we mesh well or not as author and editor. I’m also happy to do a smaller test edit of 5 pages with you if you’d like to see me in action before booking, or put you in contact with a current or previous client as a reference.

Price: $1/150 words
