Indie Publishing Initial Consultation $50

This one hour session will get you started on your indie publishing journey! We’ll discuss your book, genre, categories, keywords, blurb, publishing platforms, social media presence and launch strategy. $40/hour for each additional hour needed.

Content / Developmental Editing

Starting at $.005 per word. Sample edit of 2000 words provided free of charge. Author will receive full read-through with comments plus editorial letter with notes on character development, voice, readability, consistency and plot arc.

Copy Editing

Starting at $.005 per word. Sample edit of 2000 words provided free of charge. This level of editing provides corrections to style/grammatical/spelling/usage errors as well as flow issues. Basic feedback about character development, plot structure and consistency are also provided, but not at the level of a content/developmental edit.

Proofreading

Proofreading starts at $.003 per word. In a proofread, only errors are corrected (spelling, punctuation, usage and grammar). No suggestions are made for better sentence flow and no feedback is given about characters/plot/consistency. Proofreading is recommended ONLY after a copy edit has been performed by myself or another editor.

Editing Turn Around Times

As an author myself, I know how important it is to get your manuscript back from your editor in a timely fashion. I’m not one of those editors who takes months to complete a project. My average time to complete an edit is 10-14 days (for a full 80K word novel.) I *always* make my deadline. Guaranteed or $50 off your service.

Social Media Management

I have over 5 years of experience managing Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and blogs for corporate clients, as well as four years managing my own author social media presence. I will work with you to come up with a custom package depending on your needs, starting as little as $100/month. I also have a great deal of experience with Facebook ads and will be happy to set up ads for clients provided they have an ad account and grant me access.

Terms and Conditions

Consultation fees are due in advance. Social media management fees are due by the first of the month for each month contracted. For editing projects, I require a 50% down payment, with the balance due upon return of the completed manuscript.
