Editing Services

Editing time varies from writer to writer.
For this reason, we always offer a sample edit to determine the amount of time and work your manuscript will need. Please contact us at plot2published@gmail.com to request your sample edit and FREE QUOTE.

Proofreading


Your book is pretty much complete. It's a "good read" and you just want to clean up the text for printing.


We'll read your book and correct the following:
  • spelling
  • capitalization errors
  • typos
  • punctuation errors
  • minor grammatical errors
  • formatting

Here's where we help you turn a good story into a great one. We'll examine your style, organization, sentence structure, word choice and more.


In addition to proofreading we'll look at:
  • sentence structure
  • word choice
  • repetitiveness
  • grammatical choices
  • clarity and sense
  • awkward phrasing
  • rhythm


$ .015 - .02 cents per word
Rewrite + Full Edit
Some books have problems that are embedded in the structure. We'll look for loose ends, poor characterization and plotting, and other issues that keep a book from realizing its full potential. We would also consider it a rewrite if the sentence structure or word usage is extremely poor.
In addition to a full edit we'll also look at:
  • structural choices
  • characterization
  • plot consistency
  • overall structure
  • loose ends to tie up
  • momentum
