Substantive/structural editing: Also known as developmental editing. Let’s look at the big picture. I’ll review your manuscript, marking it up in Word to help you clarify and reorganize, develop themes and plot, and make the most of characterization and pacing. This service includes an in-depth editorial letter that outlines the saleability, strengths and weaknesses, and suggested areas of improvement for your MS. Starting at $0.008 per word. **Service is available for partial manuscripts if you would like feedback on a few chapters.

Manuscript critiques: Want an overview of your manuscript? I’ll read and provide you with an editorial letter that outlines the strengths and weaknesses of your MS, with suggested areas of improvement touching on areas of plot, pacing, setting, characterization, and conflict. This is a lighter, less expensive option with faster turnaround time than the structural edit and doesn’t include comments in the manuscript itself. Starting at $7.50 per 5000 words. **Service is available for partial manuscripts if you would like feedback on a few chapters.

Synopsis and query letter critiques: You have only a few moments to capture an agent or editor’s attention and convince them that your story is a knock-out they just have to sign. You’ve got to be eye-catching but concise, conveying plot details, characterization, hooks, and personal information in a clear, interesting way. I’ve been reading unagented submissions from the so-called slush pile for years and I know what editors and agents are looking for. I can take your query letter and/or synopsis and whip it into shape. Starting at $35 for query letters, $50 for synopses 1-4 pages in length, $75 for synopses 5-10 pages in length. Ask about package rates for query and synopsis combos.
