Frequently Asked Questions
If I haven't had a Developmental Edit, can I still hire you for Line-Editing?
I strongly recommend first-time authors either begin with a Developmental Edit of their manuscript or take our Short Story Boot Camp before hiring a Line Editor.
What do projects at the low and high ends of your rate spectrum look like?
Manuscripts on the lower end of the spectrum need an objective eye to ensure clarity, quality, and to catch little things that have slipped through the cracks, but they don't require major rewriting.
Manuscripts on the upper end of the spectrum need more TLC before they are ready to move forward. Scene/Sequel elements may need to be added or rearranged, dialogue may need adjustment, and there may be continuity issues.
If you quote a price on the upper end of your spectrum, does that mean I should just give up?
Absolutely not! It just means you're still learning to master your craft.
Working with a Line Editor is one of the best ways to improve your basic craft skills because you can see changes applied to your own work.
