Editing Services

I offer three types of editing:

Full Edit:
I read through your manuscript first to understand your unique story, often making short notes of encouragement or asking questions as I respond to your characters through the eyes of a reader. I then begin edits, commenting on and correcting any areas that could be further developed, from plot and characters to setting and storytelling proficiency. Line editing (see below) is included. I make these edits using track changes, notes in the margins, and a summary of my critiques in a separate document.
Rate: $3.00/page.

Line Edit:
I read through your manuscript, making line-by-line edits of punctuation, spelling, and grammar, as well as an in-depth critique of your narrative flow (for instance, awkward sentences, excess words, and repetitive phrases). I make these corrections using track changes.
Rate: $2.00/page.

Reader’s Edit:
I read through your manuscript as a reader then send you a new document with a summary of my thoughts on your plot, characters, setting, writing style, and narrative flow. This edit does not include line-by-line critiques of punctuation, spelling, or grammar, though if I happen to notice any typos or other technical issues, I will comment on them.
Rate: $1.00/page.

I also offer a free, 10-page trial edit on any of the above services.

If you’d like to get to work, just shoot me an email at editsbyalexandria@yahoo.com including the edit you are interested in, your page count, target audience, and a brief description of your project. I’ll reply within seven calendar days to let you know whether or not I can accept the project, when I should be able to begin, and how the process will work from there. Can't wait to work with you!
