The second round gives you the Gold package, focusing on tenses, dialogue tag usage, removing fluff words.

  • All-in-One Monthly package: Do you have a manuscript you are working on, but you want feedback and editing done daily? Are you against a deadline? Do you want to write a novel in a month and have it publish-ready by the end of that time? This package is for you! In the All-In-One Monthly package, you purchase my services for a month, with you as the only client for that entire month. You will have my undivided attention, Monday through Friday (and weekends if necessary), for a month. Edits can be sent back to you daily, along with beta notes. This hard-hitting, diamond package (Developmental, Beta report, Copy Edit, Proofing, and custom Voice proofing) gives you every service I offer for a lower price, all within on time frame. Monthly price is based on novel length-- 50-70k novels are $800, 70-90k novels are $900. Novels over or under that specific word count can be quoted for your convenience. 

  • If changes are made to the novel while I am reading that need to be reviewed, I will gladly reread the section or start over for a fee of $10/30,000.  ***Remember, we are human, but I vow to catch any errors that I see, however sometimes errors might be missed.***
***As of January 1, 2018, any editing service (excludes Beta-Plus) paid in full at the time of scheduling will receive 10% off the total amount of the service***

***As of August 1, 2015, all services will require a non-refundable deposit at the time of scheduling. The deposit will go toward your total amount due, however, no refunds will be given if services are no longer desired. Payments can be split into two or three total installments (unless otherwise specified, for instance, with the Diamond package), and if special circumstances arise, I am willing to work on further payment plans. For example, one payment is your deposit, the second payment is due the day work is scheduled to begin, and the third payment is due the date of completion.***

***Because of how booked in advance I am, I am more than happy to reschedule clients when given the proper amount of notice. The block of time I schedule you is yours and yours alone, so it is difficult to fill the spots on short notice. If rescheduling is needed, please give me at least one week notice. If less than one week notice is given, you may not be promised another booking spot.***
