TIER 1

Let's hook an agent or an editor so they're dying to read your submission. For back cover copy/blurbs, please see my separate services page.

Twitter Pitch critique — ($25) #PitMad? #DVPit? The Twitter pitch sessions are numerous. You only have 140 characters. Let me show you how to create an irresistible hook.

First 5 pages critique — ($40) Let’s give your book a powerful opening and feedback you can apply to the rest of the book.

Query critique — ($50) Make sure your intended agent or editor can’t wait to open your manuscript.

Synopsis critique — ($75) Agents and editors often look first at your query, then your voice. Now they want a synopsis that shows the story is great *before* they read the entire manuscript.

Plot development consultation — ($75/hour) Plotting might be my *favorite* part of editing. Some of my favorite and best selling books came from spec projects or stories the author and I came up with together. Whether you’re thinking about what to write or already have a book, I’ll help you craft a plot everyone will want to read.

Editorial Letter — (<60k words=$150, 60k-80k=$200, +80k=ask for a quote) Full read of your manuscript and an editorial letter noting strengths and opportunities. No in-manuscript edits.

TIER 2

I edit almost every genre in fiction, though my specialties are teen, new adult, and adult romance.

All edits are made directly in your manuscript via track changes and comment bubbles. I require manuscripts, pitches, queries, and synopses to be sent to me electronically as a Word document with the following formatting: double-spaced with 1-inch margins, using a legible size 12 font (such as Times New Roman).

Developmental edits (content critique) — ($.015/word) I’ll focus solely on the story, providing in-depth thoughts within the manuscript on point of view, characterization, showing vs telling, description, sensory details, dialogue, setting, pacing, plot, etc. If needed, I can also brainstorm possible solutions with you after I deliver the manuscript to help fix content issues (please note, I often do so inside the manuscript, making comments and suggestions as I go). No line edits.

Line edits — ($.015/word) I’ll identify the following: awkward or unclear sentences, repetition of sentence patterns, overused words/phrases (“crutch” words), inauthentic-sounding dialogue, body parts acting independently, dangling modifiers, noun/pronoun mismatch, grammar and syntax errors, etc., plus make suggestions as needed for corrections. I’ll also correct any punctuation errors/typos I find. No content edits.

Co-create a Plot Beginning to End — ($500) Have some great ideas but you don’t know what to do with them? Struggling to outline a coherent story you’re confident will impact and resonate with readers? Let’s create the story together. You’re in the driver’s seat. I’ll help you get to the finish line.

TIER 3

Developmental AND line edits — ($.025/word) Full developmental edits, followed by full line edits, pointing out both opportunities and strengths. This can be done in one or two rounds (two is greatly recommended); if you choose two rounds, the first would be developmental edits, and the second would be line edits.

With this, you’ll also receive a FREE Twitter Pitch, FREE Query, FREE Synopsis, and FREE Editorial Letter.
