Freelance Editing + Publicity

I have been freelance editing since January 2013, with a number of beta reads before that. I offer query packages, reader's reports, and in-depth critiques, as well as sensitivity reads.

Query Critiques

I will do two passes of query critiques for free. If you’d like your first or second pass featured on the blog anonymously, then I can do the critique on the blog as well as emailing edits.
Unlimited query critiques cost $15. You can start this immediately if you know you’ll want more than two looks, or pay when you ask for your third query critique.

Submission Package

I will look over your query, synopsis (single spaced), first 10 pages of your manuscript, and make in-text edits as well as send notes. $30

Reader’s Report

You send me your manuscript and I send you back a reader’s report. The report can be anywhere from 1 page to 4 pages, depending on how much work the editor believes needs to be done. This will cover plot, pacing, characterization, voice, writing, and anything else U pick up. Reader’s reports cover the big picture of your manuscript.

  • 110,000-119,999: $210
  • 120,000+: $230
In-Depth Critique

On top of doing a reader’s report, I will also go through and make in-text edits. This can include line editing, some copy editing, checking for continuity, and highlighting examples of issues pointed out in the reader’s report.

Pricing is done by word count:
  • 20K or less: $80

  • 110,000-119,999: $380
  • 120,000+: $400
Sensitivity Reads

I am demisexual - which is on the asexual spectrum - and fat, so I can read for both of those things. I also have had depression and anxiety for half my life and only recently started treatment for them, so I can also help with those things.

Sensitivity reads will be a flat $250 and provide you with a critique on the representation you ask me to look at. If you'd also like a reader's report, that will be an extra $50.

Publicity/Assistant Work

I have worked as an author assistant for two different authors. I have also been a publicity/marketing intern at two different Big 5 publishing imprints, where I worked on a wide variety of books, from non-fiction to romance to YA. I would love to put my experience towards helping you with outreach to bloggers and on social media or with research and transcribing. I can also write up pitch letters and other promo material - honestly, I'm open to trying out anything. I generally charge $15/hour, but I'm up for working with your budget.
