Beta Reading & Copy Editing

It's been a busy few months and I've neglected this blog! I have a lot to catch everyone up on, but will begin that with another post. Today I want to let you know about two new services I've been offering: Beta Reading & Copy Editing and Book Cover Design for Indies.

I'll address cover design in another post, but here is the info on the editing services:

Beta Reading using notes in Word and a 1 to 2 page critique summary: $.001 per word. For example, an 80,000 word manuscript would be $80.

Proof Reading is $.002 per word. Proof reading checks for spelling, punctuation, and basic grammar. It does not focus on content or correct stylistic or deeper issues within the writing or plot.

Copy Editing is $.004 per word. Copy editing addresses corrections as well as deeper elements of style, sentence structure, plot holes or inconsistencies in some cases, word repetition, character issues, etc... While many elements of plot and character may be addressed, a copy edit does not replace a content edit. I do not offer content editing.

While I am generally available for beta reading at almost any time, my availability for fuller editing is much more limited.

If you are interested in any of these services, just contact: Heather Senter - Editing Services

Please describe your project, its length and genre, and what your timeline is.

Please note that I do not accept erotica, erotic romance or steamy romance, or very graphic horror. I do not read these genres and would thus not be a very could choice for your manuscript. Standard horror, thriller, urban fantasy, fantasy, YA, middle grade, clean romance, science fiction, etc are all welcome.
