This is a good option if you want to polish your manuscript before submission, or if you have a later-stage manuscript that you are planning to self-publish. I will address spelling, grammar, style, and consistency within the manuscript, as well as clarity and smoothness at the line level, making all edits in track changes (plus any queries in margin comments), then send it back to you. Once you've looked through it and made corrections, I will do one final pass to make sure all edits are incorporated and the manuscript is clean. I prefer to work with the Chicago Manual of Style.
Time: 2-3 weeks, depending on project length and complexity.
Rate: ¢1.2/word. Once I’ve seen your project and word count, I will propose a flat project fee, which guarantees there will be no surprises or hidden costs at any point.
