How Much Does an Editor Like Me Cost?
Let's talk first, though, to see if we're a good fit for each other.
For example, I may say:
“Lucy is a very patient woman. This action seems out of character for her unless you can provide further justification.”
“This scene relies heavily on visual elements and doesn’t feel fully imagined. It could use more olfactory or audio description to invoke more of the senses.”
Note: The author is, of course, at liberty to ignore any of the suggestions I provide. However, this service is most effective for writers who want to be challenged and enjoy constructive criticism.
Proofreading & Line Editing
Yes, I do use Oxford commas.
For example, I may insert a colon or conjunction if a sentence contains a comma splice. Other issues hindering the readability of the novel will also be addressed, including:
- Major repetition
- Errors in word choice or connotation
- Redundant phrasing
For as long as I’ve been writing, I’ve never considered using another editor. As a one-woman writing workshop who keeps fiction realistic, only Amanda has truly advanced my work. I count on her to help me guard against my own lazy habits.
We get compliments regularly from readers on how good our editor is to deliver such error-free manuscripts. We appreciate Amanda’s ability to turn around projects quickly and with an eagle eye for typos, misspellings, and punctuation errors.
