MANUSCRIPT EVALUATION AND EDITING SERVICES
I am pleased to be able to offer these services to fiction authors of all levels of experience.
The Manuscript Evaluation Service includes:
Comments on content: characterization, dialogue, setting, structure, believability, research
Comments on writing technique: technical ability, style, voice, etc
Steps to take to develop the manuscript
Responses to three questions submitted by the author
$100.00 for the first 10 pages plus $1.00 per page thereafter.
For example, the total cost for a 200-page manuscript is $100 + (190 x $1.00) = $290.00.
The editing service includes:
Substantive/structural editing: Clarifying or reorganizing a manuscript for content and structure
Stylistic editing: Clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, polishing language, and other line-by-line editing
Copy editing: Editing for grammar, usage, spelling, punctuation, and other mechanics of style; checking for consistency of mechanics and for internal consistency of facts; inserting head levels and approximate placement of art; editing tables, figures, and lists; notifying the designer of any unusual production requirements
Proofreading: Checking page proofs of formatted, edited material for adherence to design and for minor, mechanical errors in copy (such as spelling mistakes or small deviations from the style sheet)
