Proofreading is $0.005 a word with a five day turn-around for manuscripts under 50k (extra day for every additional 25k). For proofreading, we check for:

• spelling
• punctuation (missing quotes, missing periods, dashes instead of em-dashes, commas instead of semi-colons, inappropriate apostrophes, etc)
• grammar
• incorrect words (passed/past, etc)
• homophones (you're/your, there/their/they're, etc)
• product/company references for spelling/capitalization (Walmart is correct, not WalMart, Wal-mart, Wal-Mart, etc)

We do one complete pass of the manuscript, with most pages being read 2-3 times.


Line Editing is $0.01 a word with a one week turn-around for manuscripts under 50k (extra day for every additional 25k), and includes proofreading as well as edits. In addition to all the items on the Proofreading section, we'll check for:
• grammar and sentence structure
• word choice ("I don't think that word means what you think it means”)
• word repetition
• sentence/paragraph flow
• consistent character traits (eye color doesn’t change, etc)
• timeline issues

We will also give general comments on the overall plot/characters/chapter flow.

If desired, we can do Americanization as well, changing spelling differences (realize/realise), food references (British Smarties are America’s M&M’s), and slang to an appropriate counterpart.

We do two complete passes of the manuscript, with most pages being read 4 times.
