THIS IS WHAT YOU GET:
A technical copy edit for grammar, usage, spelling, and punctuation.
Editing for consistency of font and any other stylistic choices made by the author.
Editing for internal consistency in author-created spellings.
Comments on any plot holes or other inconsistencies or errors noticed.
Two editing passes: I will edit twice, then send manuscript to the author. I may make a third pass at no additional charge at my discretion.
A style sheet with the completed document.
I may also provide a document of notes if significant problems are found. This is considered a bonus service and is not a given part of the edit.
THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
Sign the contract.
Pay 50% up front.
Deliver the novel as a MS Word Document upon signing of the contract. The document should be in 12-point type, double-spaced. Documents not delivered in this format may require a renegotiation of price.
Review and accept/reject all changes made or suggested. Final acceptance of the edits using MS Word Track Changes are the responsibility of the author.
Remain available during the course of the edit to answer questions within 24 hours. Delay in responding to questions may delay the delivery of the document.
THIS IS WHAT IT COSTS:
I charge $.01 per word. Minimum charge is $30.00.
