Copy editing/Proofreading - $0.01/word
This isn’t your average, ordinary proofread!
Through my copy editing services, I’ll perform a thorough proofreading treatment of your manuscript, including:
- Catching and correcting any grammatical and typographical errors
- Reducing sentences and phrases as needed
- Removing repetitious words, lines, and other text
- Addressing any larger, more significant issues
The main goal of my copy editing services is to prepare your manuscript for final publication. That’s why I go the extra mile to make any applicable rewriting and revision improvements. I’ll also provide you with a brief summary of other issues that can be addressed to help improve your work (for example, plot and character development, story structure, etc.).
Line editing - $0.02/word
My line editing services include two separate rounds of work on your manuscript.
1st Round: I’ll perform a quick, yet thorough review of your manuscript, identifying any major issues that need improvement (for example, redundancies or inaccuracies in the text, maintenance of tone and voice, general story analysis, etc.). My comments will address the major issues in your work that can benefit from some rewriting enhancement.
2nd Round: I’ll perform a comprehensive line edit of your manuscript, including all of the following:
- Sentence structuring and clarity
- Improving word selection
- Plot development
- Dialogue strengthening
- Final proofreading
After both these rounds of editing are completed, you’ll have a cleaner, more enhanced manuscript, ready for final publication.
Developmental editing - $0.03/word
Through my developmental editing services, I’ll address such major issues as plot development and inconsistencies, character improvement, story structure, and the overall presentation of your work. This is a detailed, intense level of editing that could involve significant rewriting and restructuring, but it’s all designed to make your manuscript as strong as possible.
After I’ve completed my developmental editing treatment of your work, I’ll perform a full line edit and proofread of it to enhance your manuscript further and make it ready for final publication.
Helpful editing tip: remove extra punctuation. A powerful hyphen here and thought-provoking semicolon there can be effective, but a story riddled with all sorts of punctuation (parentheses, colons, ellipses, etc.) doesn't flow well. You can often eliminate these extra pieces of…

Hey guys, another helpful proofreading tip: separate your text into individual sentences. This will help you read each sentence carefully. To do this, just press the return key after each period so every line begins a new sentence, then read each sentence separately, spotting grammar, punctuation, or spelling errors as you go.
