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– $0.003 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.

“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.

“It was just right. You gave my grammar an excellent detailed polish, while also making just the right amount of suggestions to clarify the story from a reader’s perspective. You are truly good at what you do. Your work is excellent. It was perfect for what I needed at this point in closing out my first book in a story I’ve been working on for ten years. I give you my highest recommendation.

“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!”

“I was beyond impressed, grateful, and pleased with Liz’s editing. Her line suggestions and edits not only improved the overall story flow, but also corrected all of my grammatical errors. A definite pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with Liz again in the future!”

How it works: Tell me a little bit about your project (genre, word count, deadline, etc.). If requested, I will do a free sample edit of 500-1,000 words so you can see my editing style. I like to suggest you take your sample from the middle or end of the book, since the beginning is generally more polished.
