BETA – Paid Services – $1.00 per 1,000 words (USD)
(If your manuscript is less than 10,000 words we can discuss services and rate).
What You Get From Me
I provide detailed feedback on the following:
- Hook engagement, flow, pacing, chapter hooks and transitions
- Character and plot development
- Tense usage, wording and basic editing
I provide in-line services (in Google Docs or Microsoft Word); and a chapter by chapter analysis of your book with additional suggestions. You will also receive an overall analysis of your manuscript.
If you need specific feedback on certain parts of your book, I will be sure to include that in my suggestions as well; just let me know the specifics beforehand.
Proofreading Services – Paid Services – $0.50 per page (USD)
Line by line reading for grammatical, spelling and punctuation errors.
Turn Around Time for all Services
Turn around time is dependent upon various factors, such as, how many clients I have that month and length of the manuscripts. Currently this is my second job. My side gig as it were, and I need to be mindful of my own self care in the process.
I usually only carry up to 3 clients a month. As I also am on a Street Team for a sci-fi author, and on ARC reader teams for two additional authors. Therefore, there are months where I may carry less than 3 clients, in order to be able to read ARCS and help publicize authors.
With that said, I will have your manuscript back to you within the end of the month (typically 4-6 weeks from when you schedule the service). If you need it quicker, we can discuss this and additional cost. Manuscripts are read on a first come first served basis and I reserve the right to change reading order as necessary.

Forms of Payment
I accept Paypal only as form of payment.
If you are interested in working together please reach out to me via email, with your name, a little bit about yourself and your manuscript, any deadlines, and what reading services you are looking for. If we both feel this is a good fit, I will email you an invoice with cost and Paypal information.
