Macro Edit

Macro Edit

The Macro Edit provides an in-depth analysis of all your manuscript's strengths and weaknesses in regards to:


  • Plot and Plot Holes
  • Characterization and Character Arc
  • Dialogue
  • POVs
  • Voice
  • Setting
  • Pacing
  • Continuity and Inconsistencies

I will provide in-document mark-ups and comments, deletions, and insertions (using MS Word's track changes) as well as an editorial letter. A Macro Edit does not include line edits.

This is the perfect option for those who have completed their first draft or first round of revisions and need help identifying major issues in the manuscript. For a lighter and cheapter option, see the Reader Report.

Should you like another Macro Edit following your revision to evaluate whether you have solved the problems addressed in the initial Macro Edit, I'm happy to offer you a second pass for 30% off the initial rate. 

However, I will need visible MS Word's track changes so I can follow what exactly has changed in your manuscript. If you'd like a different follow-up service, just get in touch for a specific rate.



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%)
