Editing and Proofreading

Line Editing $0.006 per word
A thorough look at each line of your manuscript to ensure your sentences are structured properly, the meaning and tone are clear, the tense and point of view are correct, and pacing and flow are natural. Spelling, grammar and punctuation errors will be fixed but are not the focus.

Proofreading– $0.002 per word
A careful sweep of your manuscript to clean up spelling, grammar, punctuation and formatting errors. Usually the last set of eyes on a manuscript that has already been edited.

Testimonials
“Liz Delton is far and away the best editor I’ve ever worked with. In addition to her extremely careful proofreading, her suggestions regarding the text itself have been most valuable. I highly recommend her, without qualification.
[R.C.G.]

“Liz Delton did a fabulous job editing my large manuscript.  Her editing style really made my manuscript more readable.  Her price was really affordable too, especially when considering what other editors are charging out there.  I would recommend her to any one who wants to polish their written piece of work!”
[A.L.]

How it works: Contact me below and tell me a little bit about your project (genre, word count, deadline, etc.). If requested, I will do a free sample edit of about 5 pages so you can see my editing style.

Price can vary slightly depending upon images in the book or special formatting.

How it works: Contact me with your word count, a brief description of the project (genre, any special formatting you need such as images), which type of formatting you require (and where you’re intending on using the files, such as Amazon’s KDP, or IngramSpark), and when you’re looking to have the project complete. I will get back to you with a final quote and processing time. Then, you send me your manuscript. Once I send you the completed file(s), I will send you an invoice which is due within 7 days of receipt.

I’ll also include some general instructions for uploading your formatted documents to KDP or Ingram.
