The Novel Line Edit is typically done after any developmental or substantive revisions and only when you are confident that the story itself is solid. Now we’re getting to the things that can make your manuscript as polished as it can be. In developmental or substantive edits, I focus on the big picture, but here I read the manuscript line by line to make sure everything flows as it should. As a result, line edits take up to four weeks, depending on calendar availability.
The Novel Line Edit uses track changes and includes everything in the copyedit plus the following:
- Word choice
- Consistency in voice
Prices start at $.03/word
All prices are subject to change and are based on word count and a variety of other factors, to be discussed between client and service provider before any contracts are signed.
