Freelance Editing

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 $25. 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. $40

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 I believe needs to be done. This will cover plot, pacing, characterization, voice, writing, and anything else I pick up. Reader’s reports cover the big picture of your manuscript.

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.
