Book Plan Critique

Have an idea or an outline your book and wondering if it will work (and how to actually finish it)? A book plan critique is perfect for you. This one-off developmental editing package is designed for writers who are beginning their book or in between drafts and want feedback on whether their idea is good, what pitfalls they might run into, and the overall book structure. Whether you've got a first draft or a fiftieth, a manuscript review can provide high-level critique that will help you make your book better.

A certified book coach/editor on our team will read your premise, synopsis, and book plan, and prepare a critique that will help you find exactly what you're trying to do in your book, give you a sense of the book's overall structure, and tips for how to actually finish your book.

Perfect for: Writers with a book idea who are about to start their first draft OR writers who are in between drafts and who are about to start their next draft.

Price: $500

Time: After you fill out the book plan form, your coach/editor will review it and send you the first draft video critique and a delivered book plan within 2 weeks. You can share feedback and then they will send you a final draft of the book plan

Manuscript Review

Whether you've got a first draft or a fiftieth, a manuscript review can provide high-level critique that will help you make your next draft even better.

A certified book coach/editor on our team will read your manuscript and prepare a set of deliverables that will help you find exactly what’s right, what’s wrong, and how to make your book even better. Then, they’ll join you for an hour-long editorial call to share their best recommendations and help you craft the book you’ve envisioned.

Perfect for: A completed manuscript of a book (whether it’s a first draft or a fiftieth!).

Price: $1,500 for a manuscript of up to 100,000 words. After that, $150 more for each additional 10,000 words.

Copy Editing / Proofreading

Copy Editing/Proofreading

You’ve finished your content editing and even your line editing, and you’re a step away from going to print. The next step is to hire a copy editor to catch any misplaced commas, errant semicolons, and that one time you forgot your main character’s nickname is Margie, not Margy.

Your copy editor will read every keystroke of your book with an eagle eye. They’ll mark each correction in Suggestion Mode/Track Changes for you to review. They’ll also create a style sheet explaining each copyediting decision so you can keep track of all the pesky details in your book.

Perfect for: A piece of writing that’s received content editing and is ready for a final check before publishing. This is available for writing of all lengths, from short stories and blog posts to novels and books.

Price: 3 cents per word.

Time: Varies by project.
