Fiction Editing

Bronze Package – Proofreading – £10 per 1000 words

This is the most basic service we provide and should only be used for texts which have already been edited for grammatical issues

  • Text is checked for typos.

  • Text is checked for spelling errors.
  • Text is checked once as standard.

Silver Package – Line Editing without an editorial assessment – £12 per 1000 words

This is a more thorough service than proofreading, but we stress this should only be used for texts which have already been developmentally edited and beta read.

  • Text is checked for typos.
  • Text is checked for grammatical issues.
  • Text is checked for spelling errors.
  • In cases where the meaning is confused by the grammar, more attention will be given in the comments to help the author correct the issue.
  • Text is checked once as standard.

Gold Package – Line Editing with an editorial assessment – £20 per 1000 words

This is a more thorough service than proofreading or line editing without an editorial assessment.  We stress this should only be used for texts which have already been developmentally edited and beta read.

  • Text is checked for typos.
  • Text is checked for grammatical issues.
  • Text is checked for spelling errors.
  • Advice will be offered on writing style and basic story details such as continuity errors (please note this is NOT developmental editing. See my Diamond Package for developmental services).
  • In cases where the meaning is confused by the grammar, more attention will be given in the comments to help the author correct the issue.
  • Editorial assessment provided at the end of the work. This is a two page document summarising your text’s strengths and weaknesses, suggestions for the story and characters. This is not the same as a developmental edit, which includes comments throughout the document to develop the story and language.
  • Text is checked once as standard.

Diamond Package – Developmental Editing – £22 per 1000 words

This is a more thorough service than line editing, aiming to help you develop the story, characters and plot. We recommend this should only be used for texts which have already been beta read.

  • Text is checked for typos.
  • Text is checked for grammatical issues.
  • Text is checked for spelling errors.
  • Advice will be offered on writing style, formatting and basic story details such as continuity errors.
  • Comments will be offered on the story structure, flow and pace.
  • Comments will be offered on dialogue and character development.
  • Comments will be offered on description and word choices.
  • In cases where the meaning is confused by the grammar, more attention will be given in the comments to help the author correct the issue.
  • Text is checked twice as standard. The initial edit will function as mentioned above, and the second edit will be conducted once tracked changes and comment suggestions have been made. You are free to use or ignore comments and tracked changes as you see fit, but if you decide not to act on any of my advice, a second edit may not be possible.
  • You will receive an editorial report after both edits.

Ruby Package – Book Doctor – Price On Application – £25 per 1000 words +

My Ruby Package is a book doctor package. This is a more thorough service than editing – half way between developmental editing and ghostwriting.

  • This package is tailored to the client individually and thus a quote is only available on application. This service may not be available for every genre or style of book.
