Freelance editing services for romance and erotica authors
STRUCTURAL EDITING | 3 pass editing package | $799
Because the only thing worse than clumsy wording and repetition are clumsy wording and repetition. (Point made.)
Meet the detail-oriented edit that :
- Improves clarity and flow
- Eliminates words that hang up a reader
- Cleans up convoluted sentences
- Facts are checked and corrected
- Sections are (sometimes) rearranged, and subheads & chapters are subject to shakeups. *As a bonus, proofreading is included after you’ve wrapped up your rewrites.
The turn around on a structural edit is 4 to 6 weeks depending on what the project needs.
COPYEDITING | 2 pass editing package | $499
Getting back to the basics, copyediting finds and corrects any
- rogue grammar and spelling
- syntax errors, and if requested cultural sensitivity
Turnaround is 10-14 business days with a required sample edit of 10 pages.
FULL DETAILED CRITIQUE | $299
Authors are often too close to their work to see glaring plot holes or recognize that their main character is too stupid to live. This is a good time for a full, detailed critique. While this is not an edit, you will receive:
- detailed notes on overall readability, including notes on tropes and genre expectations
- In-depth character dissection using archetypes and GMC (goal, motivation, conflict), dialogue, and if requested, cultural sensitivity
- Three-act plot structure to make sure your story begins at the right point in your timeline, doesn’t sag in the middle, or fail to reach a satisfying ending
Turnaround is 7-14 business days depending on length.
First 50 Pages | $50
The First 50 Page Critique, also known as the #50for50, is a structural edit of the first 50 pages of your romance or erotic manuscript to help you jumpstart a new project or breathe life into a stagnant one.
In the #50for50 you will get:
- detailed notes (averaging around 2k words) on overall readability, including an emphasis on genre expectations.
- in-depth, character dissection using archetypes and GMC (goal, motivation, conflict), dialogue, and cultural sensitivity.
- detailed plot structure notes to determine your story arc based on the 50 pages you shared with me.
Turnaround: 7-14 days depending on what your pages need
DISCLAIMER: During our author/editor partnership, I fully expect you to curtsy upon receipt of my emails. (Kidding. I’m kidding.) If at any time in the process you decide that our styles aren’t totally compatible we can talk it out, decide whether we should move forward in a new direction or part ways. Deal?
