Line-by-line analysis of your manuscript, checking for typos,
punctuation errors, grammatical errors, style errors and so on.
Your text needs only minor modifications and re-writes..
Rates: $15 per 1000 words, plus GST.
More complicated editing, making sure that the content flow makes
sense, and the text is structured correctly. More changes are required
to bring your text up to scratch. (Please note that research is not
included in this service.)
Structural editing begins at $18 per 1000 words plus GST.
(If I think that more substantial re-writes are required,
let's chat first.)
Want to try me out?
Send me a sample of your text and I'll edit the first 3000 words for
$25.00 plus GST. That way you'll get a feel for my style, and I can
let you know if I consider the editing to be simple, or complex.
That means involves reading your manuscript, and providing a report.
No editing is done – I'll outline areas that need work, such as
continuity, language, grammar and so on.
