And that’s a wrap, right? Let’s have a look.
There’s something about wrapping up a story that just soothes a writer’s soul―until it’s time for the editing process.

- General read-through: a breakdown of strengths and weaknesses, suggested guidelines for improvement, and overall impressions. $1/page
- Line edit: line-by-line grammar, punctuation, and syntax. I’ll also offer some light feedback in terms of voice, tone, dialogue, world-building, pacing, and character development at my discretion. $0.05/word
- Developmental edit: the line edit, as well as a more in-depth analysis of plot progression, story flow, structure, length versus reader return, and more. Note that this service is not for the faint of heart, and will likely yield a murdered darling or two. $0.10/word
