Things we look for as we edit your manuscript:

  • Missing words
  • Grammatical errors and misspellings
  • Flow, tone, and style
  • That you’ve explained yourself well
  • Misused or overused words and phrases
  • Inconsistencies such as character descriptions, plot points, and settings
  • Continuity errors and making sure there are no loose ends

We use Track Changes to show corrections inline and Comments along the sidebar to ask any questions we may have about word usage or discrepancies in the story. 

Payment

Rate: $.006/per word 

Send your completed manuscript to  editor.novelneeds@gmail.com and an email confirming your order and an invoice for the deposit of 1/2 your full edit will be sent to you.

An invoice for the remaining balance will be sent upon completion of the edit.

Our turnaround times are typically under 10 days but to accommodate your deadlines please schedule your edits in advance to avoid conflicting timetables. 

If your edit isn’t prescheduled and you require an immediate (7 days or less) turnaround, a $75 rush fee will be added.


What kind of books do you edit?

We edit fiction and nonfiction books, short stories, novellas, and full-length novels. While we primarily edit romance and women’s fiction, we also have experience editing science fiction, horror, historical, mystery and thrillers.


We personalize every experience for each of our customers, tailoring our products to fit your needs.
