First Page/ By Chapter Line Edits - $30 initial fee + $4 per page
Turn Around Time - Up to 30 days or per project projection

Designed to break up manuscript into chunks so you can pay as I edit. Depending on state of the manuscript, this process can be very time consuming. My comments will include spelling, grammar, phrasing, telling, as well as irregularities in plot, pacing, repetition, character personality and matching actions, and story details. All of these will be noted in a 1-2 page report included with in-line manuscript critique. I will also make rewrite suggestions within manuscript document. I might also recommend resources or writing exercises to help with issues repeated throughout manuscript (telling/showing, inconsistent character personality, passive writing, etc...) This will be similar to a critique partner's response.

Please Note:
- Not a copy edit.
- Chapter books through young adult only.
