     Editing & Accuracy Reading Services

  • These services are available for MG, YA, New Adult, and Adult works in all genres excluding erotica*.

  • For full manuscript consults, a 500-1,000 word sample is required prior to booking. This sample will be returned to you prior to booking to provide YOU a sample of the kind of edits you will receive so you can decide if I am the right editor for you.

  • Turnaround times will vary depending upon the length of the project and what service is selected. Rush jobs will incur additional fees. All timelines will be clearly communicated.

  • Payment is available via credit card or Paypal. An invoice with terms & conditions will be sent upon agreeing on a price.

  • Edits will be provided in Word using the review features, including track changes and comments.

  • Once you know what type of service you want, head to the bottom of this page and fill out the interest form. I'll get back to you ASAP to get the ball rolling.

  • You can view the about page and explore the rest of this site to get to know more about my qualifications.

  • These services are not publishing, nor are they a guarantee you will get published by anyone else or that you will find an agent. They are a way to help you make your work the best it can be so that you can then do those things on your own.

  • Installment payments available for most services over $150.

  • Video calls are optional. There are two alternatives:

    • If you are more comfortable just going back and forth over email, we can do that instead! In that case, you can send me up to 5 emails per half-hour of video time during the review phase. Additional emails will incur an additional charge.

    • We can chat live over Discord through text, in which case you will again get the equivalent time of chatting about the project.
       

*Sex scenes within a larger narrative are fine, but pure erotica is not in my wheelhouse.

Concept/Outline Consultation: $75-$150  | Includes a one hour video call

Got a novel idea that you just want some advice on, or to pick apart before you start drafting? This one is for you. You don't necessarily need an outline, if you just want to do a video call to puzzle things out that's fine too! Will include suggestions on structure, characters, plot, POV, and anything else you would like to discuss.

 

Book Doctoring: $25-$35 per 1,000 words | Includes a one hour video call | Minimum 10,000 words

This is a deep dive into your book from the perspective of a publisher. It focuses on plot, characters, world building, overall writing style and skill, and overall making sure the book is as good as it can be in terms of creating a publishable work. Accuracy reading for the topics listed in the Accuracy Read section is included in this service. The video call will be at the end so we can go over everything and discuss the feedback.

Beta Read: $10-$20 per 5,000 words | Minimum 30,000 words

This is a lighter look at your novel from the perspective of a reader. Is it an enjoyable read? Are the characters fun? Would other people enjoy it? Does it make sense?

Accuracy Read: $5-$10 per 1,000 words

An accuracy read, also known as a sensitivity read, helps make sure you are avoiding inaccurate or offensive material such as factual errors, stereotypes, slurs, homophobia, racism, etc.. It can also help assess the general accuracy of things you may not be personally familiar with such as certain jobs, lifestyles, and experiences. I can read specifically for the following:

  • Asexual representation

  • Gender queer representation

  • General queer representation

  • Survival knowledge

  • Artistic knowledge

  • Colorado based novels

  • Migraines

  • ADHD

  • Autism

  • Backpacking/camping

  • Hunting

  • General outdoor experiences

I can also generally assess other issues that may need to be addressed and recommend if you might want to consider reaching out to another accuracy reader for those particular issues.

This service is available for whole manuscripts or excerpts.
