You may want one or all three of the services described below. You may also want to send me one chapter at a time, or several, or an entire manuscript. Please feel free to write me with any questions you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Copy-editing. I will edit for grammar and syntax, sentence clarity, consistency, and paragraph and dialogue formatting. If you like, I can also give you a short written evaluation of the manuscript, suggesting other assistance you may want to consider. Fee: $0.05 per word.
Line-editing papers and articles. In addition to copy-editing, I will reorganize the information in your manuscript, if necessary, and ask questions where I see gaps in the logic or the possibility of adding useful information. This type of editing is the kind you would receive from an editor at a significant publication. Fee: I will quote you a fee for the entire manuscript upon receipt.
In-depth manuscript evaluation. I will evaluate the manuscript as a whole and provide chapter-by-chapter feedback. I will highlight examples of strengths and weaknesses, and suggest specific ways that you can improve the writing and the way the information is presented. Fee: $0.02 per word.
Coaching. We can also communicate online, by Skype or in person in New York. Fee: $75 to $125, hourly.
“Whatever we learn to do, we learn by actually doing it;
men come to be builders, for instance, by building,
and harp players by playing the harp.
In the same way, by doing just acts we come to be just;
by doing self-controlled acts,
we come to be self-controlled; and by doing brave acts, we become brave.”
(384 BC – 322 BC)
Greek philosopher and student of Plato
