Why Do You Need an Editor?

Whether you're submitting to the Big 6, querying agents, or planning to self-publish, a second pair of eyes is a must before letting that manuscript or partial out of your hands. Sure, the world loves a great story, but the world embraces a great, well-told story. That's where I come in.

What should you expect from an editor?

Correction of grammar/punctuation/typos
Suggestions for stronger word usage
Focus on story arc/plot points
Personal communication for you and your writing
Attention to consistency in characterization and story details
Education and clarification when needed

Sounds great, right? But how much does all that cost? And how do you know if you've chosen the right editor for you and your work? Excellence in Editing has the answers.

For a limited time, I'm offering an introductory editing package. Send me your first 50 pages (double-spaced, TNR or Courier font, one-inch margins all around), and for $1.00 per page, you'll receive a detailed edit, complete with all the aspects listed above! Like the work and want me to edit your full manuscript? Great! I'll provide a price that's geared to your specific needs, and I'll deduct the $50.00 already spent from the total!
