Final Read-Through

The Final Read-Through is my lightest option for writers who are about to self-publish and would like a fresh eye to look at their manuscript to highlight those last little inconsistencies, inaccuracies, and typos in the story. I will approach the book like your reader would; if there's something nagging at me--like a continuity error or a weird turn of phrase, for example--it'll very likely nag at your reader, too.   

The Final Read-Through comes with in-document comments and mark-ups but does not include an editorial letter or substantial line edits. It's meant to be the final polish before self-publication--not an in-depth Developmental or Line Edit. This is the perfect option for those who have already completed a thorough round of editing and proofreading, and would like to ensure there's nothing left that will pull their reader out of the story.

 Timeframe:

I generally try to avoid rushing through a manuscript unless absolutely necessary as I like to make sure I can give a manuscript the time and attention it deserves. That's why I usually ask for 4 weeks for a full edit. A faster turnaround is possible but not guaranteed. However, if necessary, I do offer an "express service". Since such a short turnaround has an enormous impact on my entire schedule, this needs to be discussed in advance and is subject to a surcharge. (Guaranteed 3-week turnaround = +15%; guaranteed 2-week turnaround = +25%; guaranteed 1-week turnaround = +35%)

If you have any further questions, please take a look at my FAQs or contact me.
