Currently, I offer the following services at the following rates (by word and by hour; I don’t charge per page, as there’s simply too many variables there).
This is the big one: I’ll read your manuscript and provide twelve to fifteen pages of detailed feedback, covering plot, character, style, dialogue, structure, and the general appeal of the manuscript. Along with this I’ll make margin notes and provide some sample line editing (always visible, with the reasoning behind the changes always explained). I’ll cover what works, what doesn’t, and offer specific suggestions for improvement.
