Content editing is a vital step to take on the way to publication. Whether you choose to hire a content editor before or after you enlist beta readers--or perhaps between rounds of beta editors--it is a step that cannot be skipped if you want to produce a good book. At this point in your writing and editing adventure, you've spent too much time with your manuscript to determine what it's missing, what it has too much of, or what just straight up needs changing or cutting. Beta readers might be able to give vague answers to this effect, but a skilled content editor will help guide you through making the necessary changes to plot and writing to bring your manuscript to the next level.
The relationship between writer and editor is very important, and for that reason I will edit the first 3,000 words for free so that you can get an idea for what my feedback looks like and I can get a feel for your writing. After working together for those first 3,000 words, we will then work together to decide on a price for editing the whole book. A rough draft might be more expensive due to the amount of work it needs, while a more polished manuscript could be considerably cheaper. Word length also plays a large part in pricing, but my prices for content editing start as low as $50, so don't let worries about cost prevent you from contacting me about my editing services.
