Editorial Services

I currently have openings for:

  • Query Critiques
  • Submission Packages

I am currently closed to all full manuscript critiques for the indefinite future.

Thank you for considering me as your freelance editor! I’ve worked on RITA finalist romance books, books that sold to Big Five publishers, and self-published books. I’ve worked with writers still honing their craft and writers who know their craft and are looking for a fresh pair of eyes on their manuscript. Read through the below information and if you have any questions, please ask!

To book or ask questions, please fill out my contact form at the bottom of this page.

Query Letter Help ($20/round of edit)

If you’re struggling with your query letter, I can help! From just starting out and needing someone to walk you through the process, to critiquing a rough draft of a query, I’m here for you. Some queries take one round of editing, some take five. No matter what it takes, I promise you we’ll get your query in tip-top shape together.

Submission Package ($200)

If you’re getting ready to query, or you’ve been querying and you’re just getting no responses, I can help! In this package, I’ll look at your query letter, synopsis, and your first 30 pages. Just like with my query package, I’ll look at your letter 3x with this package!

Reader Report ($0.005/word) – CLOSED

If you’re looking for a beta read, or just reading for a particular issue (ie a plot or structural problems), then this is the package for you! You’ll get a 1-3 page reader report, including my favorite parts and any concerns I had, along with a few examples of those concerns in text (via Word track changes.)

Full Manuscript Edit  ($0.009/word)  – CLOSED

In this package, I’ll go through the whole manuscript and leave comments and edits as necessary. We’ll look at character motivations, plot problems, structure, point of view, dialogue, and anything else I feel might be holding your manuscript back from being the diamond I know it can be. You’ll get a substantial edit letter as well as the opportunity for one Skype call with me (up to one hour) and a free query letter critique.

I can’t wait to get started with you! To book, email me through the form at the bottom of this page! I respond to all requests as promptly as possible.

Ready to book? Great!

I am a freelance editor, not a writing teacher. Please take this into consideration when you’re deciding if you’re ready for this level of edits!

I work on full novel-length manuscripts. If you’re looking for a short story editor, please reach out to Kat Howard or E.C. Myers, both excellent and trustworthy.

If you’re looking for a copyeditor, I recommend Kim Eun-Byeol. You can find more information and rates here.
