Alpha/Beta Reading: I will read through your manuscript and give you my observations, such as what I believe works and what could be potential pitfalls, in a detailed email. A follow-up email is included with this service so we can discuss my observations and go over questions you may have based on my feedback.
Price: $80 for 30,000 words or fewer, $150 up to 75,000 words, and $200 for manuscripts up to 100,000 words.
Proofreading: You've checked your work, beta readers have looked it over, your editor has given a nod of approval, but you just want to make sure everything is as it should be. Proofreading is the final check, the word by word review, before you publish.
*This service does not include copy editing or line editing. If you have not had your manuscript edited, it is highly recommended as your first step. If there are a substantial amount of errors, I will email you to discuss either additional payment or a return of your manuscript and refund of your money less a non-refundable scheduling fee of $75.
Price: .008 per word or $8 per 1000 words.
Story Bible/Series Guide: Were his eyes blue or green? Did she have a cat or a dog? What the heck was the next door neighbor's name again? If you have a story you'd like to turn into a series, having a Story Bible is the way to go. I'll create a guide to help you with character descriptions, settings, dates and time, and more. Does your character have a specific set of skills? I'll make sure to make note of it. Are there made-up words? I'll create a dictionary.
Price: $200 for the first book and $100 for each additional book in the series
