FOR POETRY BOOKS:

Poetry is one of those genres of literature that should not undergo a full edit or rewrite unless it is needed.

For this reason, we offer the following fees for proofreading poetry books:

Up to 50 poems......$25
51-75 poems...........$50
76-100 poems.........$75
101-125 poems.......$99

* Amounts over 150 will be a flat rate of $170.

** For lengthy poems (over 1 page typed) each additional page will be considered a separate poem and will be counted as such.

FULL EDIT

Oftentimes writers forget to connect storylines and run into problems.

We'll perform a stringent examination of the book and take note of the style, structure, word usage and overall organization of the story.

In addition to proofreading, we will also check the following:

  • repetition of words and ideas
  • sentence structure
  • word choice
  • grammar choice
  • rhythm of story
  • unusual phrases
  • clarity & sense
  • focus points

REWRITE

Writers have great ideas and visions for stories but they don't always come together well. Sometimes there are major problems in characterization, plot, storyline, climax, and sentence structure. To make a good story "great" many writers stand in need of a rewrite.

Although we will work with you to ensure your ideas are captured within the story, we recommend undergoing a rewrite, especially for books that require more advanced work in structure, readability, and character development.

Not only will we do a full edit and proofread, we will perform the following:

  • full characterization and development
  • plot consistency
  • complete structure
  • tie up loose ends & holes in the story
  • build solid momentum
  • direction and structural choices

GHOSTWRITE

For the author that has a great story to tell but is unsure of how to get it out, we offer a dynamic Ghostwriting package suitable for any author needing their thoughts to become a manuscript.

After a thorough consultation, our team can begin taking your ideas and transforming them into the book you always envisioned.

Ghostwriting packages start as low as $500 for books up to 5,000 words.

* Each client has special needs for their book and will be evaluated on a case by case basis.

Children's books are proofread at a flat rate of $100 for up to 10,000 words. Full edits or rewrites cost more. Editing rates are based on the number of words in your manuscript and on the amount of work your manuscript needs.
