EDITING & MENTORING

Editing:
Maybe you just need a second pair of eyes on your already completed and ready to submit novel. Or, maybe you’ve just finished it, and you need an in-depth edit to get your novel ready for submission. Below you’ll find a program that fits your needs. 

Two Pass Edit: $875 one-time fee (up to 80,000 words*) 
This is an in-depth edit, with the first pass addressing big picture issues. The first pass will include a detailed report focusing on the following: Tightening your story, plot, and pacing; Deepening your characters’ goals, motivations and conflicts along with suggestions made directly in your manuscript via track changes. The second pass is more like a line edit and to ensure the changes made during the first pass flow/make sense. 

One Pass Edit/Proofread: $575 one-time fee (up to 80,000 words*) 
This is a one-time read of your manuscript. I will provide a detailed report, reviewing the strengths, weaknesses and ideas for how to improve the story. The manuscript itself will NOT be marked up. You’ll take the information from the report and apply it as you see fit. 

Line Edit: $350 one-time fee (up to 80,000 words*) 
This is a level of editing that is more for the novel that has already gone through a bigger developmental edit and already has strong story structure in place. This edit focuses more on sentence-level changes and advice to help strengthen the flow of the story. This will include feedback on word choice, sentence structure and tightening.

My passions are two-fold: running and writing. It’s those two passions that morphed into the hashtag #TheRunningWriter. 

But what does this mean for authors? 

It means, I can offer a unique take on staying physically healthy while still writing all the words.
