Just a note here. It is my endeavor to hopefully assist aspiring writers to be able to get good and reliable information and access to editing and other sources to help them become successful. I can help you and advise you how to do just about anything for a nominal fee for my time, but if you want me to do the work then I will do an excellent job for the money you pay me.

Beta Reading Critique

This is a simple and inexpensive task. I will do the Beta Reading for free.

If you want a full critique which includes punctuation, grammar, spelling and blatant errors. The cost depends on the number of pages and the depth of the critique.

Writing Guidance

Publishing Information

There is no way to set a fee on some of these services, such as the writing guidance or information on publishing. Those will be inexpensive, depending of course on how involved the job you want done turns out to be. These will have to be bid independently.

Copy Edit

This process finds embarrassing mistakes, and analyzes the document to ready it for printing or publishing. This type of edit is for blog posts, news articles, etc. Cost is directly related to the amount of work to be done. $5.00 Page with a $20.00 Minimum

Manuscript Content Editing

Everything Else

This is the most in depth editing. It finds all of the flaws in the Critique as well as slow moving paragraphs, sentence structure and repetitiveness. It points out places you can improve your story, character development and dialogue. It is a full edit of your manuscript, formatting to plot.

$20.00 per hour. 

Pretty much everything else, if I self-publish your book for you instead of you doing the work; or if I build you a Website, Author’s Page, Trailer, etc. My fee is $25.00 per hour with guaranteed results. All of these things require expertise and software. That being said, It takes me about 3 hours to set up an Author's Landing Page or an FB Page,  sometimes less if you have all your ducks in a row. A website requires more time and thought. 

If you have questions concerning my rates or what I can do for you email me.

You'll never know, if you don't try!
