I will work with you to make your manuscript shine! From copy editing to proofreading and manuscript critiques, I can help you hone prose and story. I have a B.A. in English and Creative Writing with a concentration in Fiction, and I am a former copywriter for an automotive marketing agency. I specialize in Chicago Manual of Style and AP Style.

Copy editing and proofreading services are now available!

Copy Editing

Copy editing is the process in which editors of revising a manuscript to cut down on excessive wordiness, to correct errors, and to improve readability. My rate for copy editing is $0.012 USD per word. (For an 80,000-word manuscript, it would be $960 USD.)

Proofreading

Already had your manuscript edited but need one last pair of eyes? I offer proofreading services at $0.008 USD per word. (For an 80,000-word manuscript, it would be $640 USD.)

Manuscript Critique

Have a second draft (or a third, or fourth…) but not sure if it’s quite there? I offer manuscript critiques and will give feedback on your overarching story, character development, and more. My current rate for a manuscript critique is $0.005 USD per word. (For an 80,000-word manuscript, it would be $400 USD.)

All work is done in Microsoft Word. I will leave comments in the document and send it back to you once services are completed. I offer sample edits of up to five (5) pages, double spaced, Times New Roman (size 12). For a quote and a free sample edit or critique, please email your first five pages to lithiumskylar@yahoo.com. I do not accept erotica or gore.

If payment is an issue or you are on a budget, I am willing to work out a payment plan for you!
