Congrats to any and all writers who participated in #RevPit this year.
This is our fourth year running, and the manuscripts I received during submissions were incredible. I wish I could have picked more than one, because they all spoke to me in some way.
Working with a developmental editor is an experience that will provide value to your stories and writing for years to come! But it’s not a cheap endeavor. If investing in a dev. editor is something you are interested in, then check out my specials for #RevPit 2020 entrants below.
These are for ANY RevPit entrants—meaning you can still work with me even if you submitted to another editor during the contest—however, do let me know the title of the entry you submitted this year. If you submitted one book but would like to do dev. edits on a different one, the discount will still be valid, but please note this is a one-time use discount!
Would you like to purchase this service for yourself and donate another to a friend (or anonymous writer)? Email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
#RevPit special: 15% OFF the following services until July 15th, 2020.
Book by July 15th for edits to take place up until November 15th, 2020. (I’m not accepting new projects between 11/15/2020-4/1/2021).
The Condensed Editing Service
This is for authors who want feedback in a straightforward way. No 15-page reports. Just a read through of your manuscript and a 90-min one-on-one call to talk it over. 😉
This is perfect for you if:
- You want to ensure the story holds up before investing $$$ in deeper edits.
- You respond better to verbal discussion.
- 15-page critique reports make you want to curl into a ball.
- You want a second opinion from someone who is only devoted to your vision.
This edit includes: 1-3-week turnaround, read through of entire manuscript, 90-min call, brief follow-up questions via email, reread of up to 15 pages [of your choice]. Optional: $25 additional to have the session recorded (must be decided at least 24 hours before call).
📌Original price: $697 for any project up to 80k words ($87 additional for every 10k words after that).
Prune Your Story Package
This is perfect for the writer with a manuscript draft ready to review. You are looking for a professional impression of the overall story and main areas to place your focus. Similar to the Condensed Editing Service, but it includes a written Editorial Review.
- Up to 8 pages of notes (Editorial Review)
- General assessment/feedback on marketability, overall character arc and main plot, writing techniques, and recommendations for moving forward.
- One 60-min coaching session
- 2-3-week turnaround
📌Original price: $1200 for up to 100k words
Repot and Sell Package
This is for the serious author who has taken the manuscript through several rounds of revisions, is determined to grow to their full potential, wants priority attention, and thrives by tactile learning.
- In-depth Editorial Review* of up to 15 single-spaced pages
- Annotations (comment bubbles) throughout the manuscript
- Two 60-min coaching sessions
- One reread of manuscript after revisions are made
- Unlimited passes on query letter or book blurb
- Top schedule priority (typically 4-5-week turnaround initial edit)
*Line/substantive edits add-ons are considered for current clients only.
*Editorial Review: This is an in-depth critique report that provides a big picture look at the characters, plot, structure, pace, genre/audience, and writing mechanics. It addresses the strengths of the manuscript, as well as the areas that could use improvement and suggestions for taking it to the next level.
The included annotations/comment bubbles will point out inconsistencies, provide suggestions for structure, characters, dialogue, suggestions for writing mechanics like show don’t tell, passive voice, deepening the POV, cutting scenes/lines, etc. These comments provide additional insight to go along with the critique report.
📌Original price: $3200 for up to 100k words
