Editing & Revising Service

SERVICES CLOSED CURRENTLY. ONCE I FIGURE OUT IF I CAN COLLEGE AND EDIT, THEY MAY REOPEN

Editing is something that I’ve always loved doing, and now that I am older, I want to turn it into a real job.  My goal is to be profitable for both myself and authors.  If you are a student under 22 and cannot afford the prices below, please reach out anyways and we can negotiate.  I think that everyone should be able to publish regardless of the limitations that age provides.

If you have already written a piece and would like me to edit it, please review the packages below.

My Ideal Genres…

I will read nearly any type of fiction, but the below are some of my favorites that I feel most suited to read, in no particular order:

  • Young Adult
  • Psycho-Thriller
  • New Adult
  • General Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Dystopian
  • Historical Fiction (especially around WWII, Communist China, and Royal Europe)
  • Poetry (packages will differ from below)

Below are the 4 main packages which I offer writers (by price low –> high).  The last one is the most common:

The Reviewer ($15/100,000 words)…

  • 2 page write-up on character development, plot, overall enjoyment, any issues I see in the plot, and a list of what I could see as potentially problematic with diversity/triggers.  Note I don’t consider myself an expert in the latter
  • Review on this blog if you publish (either yourself online or w/ an actual publisher)

The Buddy Reader ($25/100,000 words)…

  • 1/4-1/2 page write-up after every chapter about enjoyment, plot, character development, and anything else I notice.  Basically, the goal here is to revise and catch any plot holes, POV problems, and other revision-based errors.
  • 2 page write-up on character development, plot, overall enjoyment, any issues I see in the plot, and a list of what I could see as potentially problematic with diversity/triggers at the end of the manuscript.  Note I don’t consider myself an expert in the latter
  • Review on this blog if you publish (either yourself online or w/ an actual publisher)

The Editor ($30/100,000 words)…

  • Make any edits that I feel necessary, with annotations and notes where necessary
  • I will work in a Google Doc so that you can see in live time and ask questions
  • Review on this blog if you publish (either yourself online or w/ an actual publisher)

The Complete Package ($40/100,000 words)…

  • Edit your work
  • Work on Google Doc so you can see in live time, ask questions, and have extensive help in particular areas
  • Thorough annotations throughout the piece with extensive notes where I see necessary
  • 2 page write-up on character development, plot, overall enjoyment, any issues I see in the plot, and a list of what I could see as potentially problematic with diversity/triggers.  Note I don’t consider myself an expert in the latter
  • Review published on this blog if you publish (either yourself online or w/ an actual publisher)
