EDITING SERVICES

For those looking for initial editing advice on their polished manuscript, I offer critique and line edits of up to three chapters of your work. I can also act as a sensitivity reader for books depicting trans and bisexual characters. 

If you already have a completed manuscript and you're planning on sending it out into the world, I can help you with Twitter pitches, query letters, and synopses. I'm here to make sure you get as much out of your words as possible!

 

GENRES

YA: I am happy to work on YA of all subgenres.
Adult: Fantasy only. 
I am not the right person for Literary Fiction. While I enjoy it, I am simply not knowledgeable enough about the market to be able to offer insightful critique.
For the same reason, I don't take on MG or Picture Book projects.

If your project doesn't fit clearly into one of these categories, please send me an email/DM and we can discuss. 

 

WHAT I OFFER

These are the basic options I offer for writers. If you're looking for something more specific or you want to mix & match services, then feel free to email me or DM me on Twitter!

All prices per page assume standard manuscript format (12pt. Times New Roman font, double-spaced). 

 

MANUSCRIPT CRITIQUE (MAX. 3 CHAPTERS)

I will read up to three chapters of your manuscript and offer honest, constructive feedback on what I think could be improved. Includes in-line critique comments and line edits:
$1/page.

Optional edit letter with additional feedback: $10

QUERY PACKAGE

If you're about to start on your querying journey, I will read your materials (query letter and/or synopsis) and offer ways to strengthen and improve them. Includes two passes and an edit letter, with discussion over DMs. 

Query: $7
Synopsis: $10

Package: $15

TWITTER PITCH

I can read over your pitches for Twitter competitions and offer ways to get the spirit of your book across to agents and editors. I'll look at up to three versions of the pitch to help you understand what works and what doesn't. 
$5

SENSITIVITY READ

If your book contains queer (specifically bisexual or trans) characters and you would like me to offer feedback on how accurate/safe your representation is, please get in touch. 
Price on request; full manuscripts considered but only if polished/agented.
