freelance editing services
My book-editing services begin and end with an Editorial Review,
a high-level look at your book as a whole.
An editorial review includes:
one 20-minute introductory call, where we discuss your book and the feedback you're looking for,
a full editorial read of your partial or finished manuscript and any accompanying materials,
a two-page summary of your book's strengths and weaknesses and the editorial next steps I would recommend,
a 90-minute call to discuss your book, my feedback and suggestions, and any questions you might have for me,
up to two hours of additional review or support after the review to help you make sure you're implementing in the right direction.
You'll leave our conversation with the following:
an awareness of your book's greatest strength in its current format,
an understanding of your book's greatest weakness, and
one to three actionable suggestions for addressing your book's greatest weaknesses in your next revision.
After you purchase this service, I will contact you via the email address you've provided to set up a time for our initial call and to collect your manuscript. Expect an email within one to two business days.
In the meantime, please make sure your manuscript is formatted in .doc or .docx, that you've collected and reviewed any outlines or other organizational material that you'd like me to include as part of the editorial review, and that you've thought about any questions you'd like to ask me during our initial call.
