Line-editing is simply copy-editing, which I have done for both academic journals and fiction writers. I check for spelling errors, grammar issues, flow within the text itself, and even a little research for fact-checking. $0.005 per word.
Proofing is the very last step in any polished manuscript. Proofing is not line-editing, nor looking at content. It is simply making sure every single word, all your punctuation and even your formatting is perfect--or as close to it as humanly possible. The manuscript ready for proofing has gone through rigorous readings with a good editor and/or skilled critique partner. $0.0025 per word.
If you are combining a couple or several of my services, there will be a 10% discount. And I do not accept any Dark Romance--questionable consent and/or no sexual agency for one character.
If you're a newbie, this is where I read your manuscript to help you find ways to become a stronger writer and make your story as vivid as possible. I'm always constructive, never dismissive. I have a firm belief that every story should be told. Although, I will admit I have more than six manuscripts that won't ever be published. But I still loved writing those books, and they taught me so much.
For writers who know what a content edit is, then I need not explain myself. $0.006 per word; however, there are exceptions, so please contact me.
Critiquing or Content Editing is where I, or a member of my team, will ensure your book has flow, makes sense, is within the standards of your genre, or, better, exceeds those standards.
