Editing and Book Formatting Services

I am thrilled to announce that Chrys Fey and I are joining forces to help indie authors edit and format their books for publication.

Why spend more than you need to for extensive editing and professional formatting? And why spend hours, even days, looking for two separate people to take care of these needs when you can get both of them right when you need them?

If you take advantage of Chrys’ affordable editing, you’ll get a 20% discount on my formatting!

Chrys Fey’s Editing Services:

Short stories (any genre)
Novellas (any genre)
Novels (any genre)

NOTE: I will edit the first ten pages of your novel-length book, or the first 5 pages of a novella up to 50 pages for FREE for you to decide if I’m a good fit to edit your manuscript.

FULL EDIT + CRITIQUE:
In which I comment on content (plot and characters), check for typos, punctuation errors and grammar. I will cut unnecessary words and sentences, check for redundancies, repeated words, and POV changes. I will also offer easy fixes and suggestions on content.
Price: $1.00 per page

MANUSCRIPT CRITIQUE:
In which I focus on content (plot and characters) with no typo fixes or other forms of editing. I will point out flaws (if any), offer easy fixes, suggestions, and also comment on things I like.
Price: $0.50 per page

- Turnaround time can be anywhere from 5 days to 3 weeks depending on the project or the deadline we agree upon.
