Editing

Are you a romance author looking for an editor? I’m also a freelance editor!

*all services require a 30% down to hold your spot.

DEVELOPMENTAL 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, and clean 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 developmental 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, spelling, punctuation, capitalization, syntax errors and cultural sensitivity. (Unfortunately, this doesn’t include a post-rewrite proofread.) 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 your plot, readability, and character development. And if you have written a character of color, I can also read for sensitivity and accuracy.  Turnaround is 7-14 business days depending on length.

50 PAGE DEEP CRITIQUE | $50

#50for50 is an exclusive offering for romance authors who have never worked with The Dirty Editor to get the kind of deep, detailed edit that I give to all of my author-friends without the big commitment. First-time authors are welcome!

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?
