Before I began building my list of clients as a literary agent, I worked as an academic editor and a freelance book editor. Separate to the work I do as a literary agent, I offer editorial services to select clients who are seeking informed, thorough feedback as they prepare to submit their work to industry professionals or to self-publish.
WHAT I OFFER:
Query letter and first ten pages: Critique and edit
I'll offer feedback about how to improve and polish your query letter and the first ten pages of your manuscript. I'll make sure you're presenting a concise, well-constructed, error-free query letter. I'll offer suggestions about how to improve your pitch and the opening pages of your manuscript.
Clean, well-presented work stands out from the crowd. $125
I'll read your manuscript, making comments throughout, using track changes. I'll comment on inconsistencies, problems with continuity, and other developmental and structural suggestions that arise. I'll provide a 1-2 page report highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of your book, including feedback on plot, pacing, structure, voice, style, and character development. I'll let you know what I think works and what needs attention. I'll offer my opinion about the marketability of your project.
Prices vary depending on the length of the manuscript and the type of editing required. For a quote, please contact me by filling out the form below. Or visit me here.
To find out more:
Most of my time is dedicated to the work I do as a literary agent, so I can only take on select editorial projects.
I use PayPal. I ask for the first half up front and the second half when my editorial clients are 100% satisfied with the service.
Please note that the editorial services outlined on this page are separate to my services as a literary agent.
