Services

  • Developmental editing: I will identify issues with your work of fiction or creative nonfiction and recommend fixes as well as comment on structure, theme(s), plot, character, voice, dialogue, point of view, setting, and tone. The number of revisions will be set before work begins.  
  • Manuscript evaluation: My editorial report will provide a summary of your manuscript (fiction or creative nonfiction), its strengths and weaknesses, and its marketability. I will be available to answer your questions about the evaluation, but revisions are not part of this service. 
  • Copyediting: A comprehensive check of spelling, punctuation, grammar, usage, repetition, consistency, and bias.

Fees

  • For developmental editing, you will be quoted a project fee based upon the number of hours I have estimated the work will take to complete. Alternatively, you can put a limit on the number of hours of my time you think is appropriate, given your budget and time constraints.
  • Manuscript evaluations start at C$1100 plus HST. 
  • For copyediting and proofreading, my rates are competitive. The amount invoiced depends on the level of edit required or requested.

 

If you're a new client with a full-length manuscript that requires editing, I’m happy to provide you with a short sample edit of your work. The main purpose of this is to help you decide whether I would be a good fit for you and your project.
