It’s time to edit your book!
The editing process really can be enjoyable and educational. (It’s true!) You have a story, and I’d like to help you get it out there to readers.
Editing Pen will help you with coaching, developmental editing, copyediting, or proofreading to clean up your manuscript and enhance the story you need to tell. If a beta read is all you need (so poetic!), then I offer comments and suggestions to tighten your story and freshen those characters. I have a background in teaching and love supporting new or established writers. Let’s talk about what you need, and I’ll take a quick look at your manuscript and provide a quote and free sample for you. Authors’ books are frequently Tweeted, posted in Facebook groups, and added to ePen eNews.
Click a pen below, and let’s get started on your book!
We’ll work on plot, character, theme, language, dialogue, rhythm, patterns, conflict, protagonist v. antagonist goals and motivations, setting, scenes, atmosphere, and more. I’ll provide running commentary in the margins, some inline editing, and plenty of links and information for your final draft before a line edit.
Send me a couple of chapters via e-mail to editor at editingpen.net for a free sample edit.
You’ll then receive a quote with the sample. Your quote is based on how many corrections per word count and if you are in need of a line edit or a proofread.
Take a look at the kinds of things I comment on and the corrections made. If you feel we are a good match for your project, I’ll send you a letter of agreement, and 50 percent payment is due upon manuscript delivery.
Then I’ll get started on your story! We’ll keep in touch via e-mail, and the balance is due upon return of your completed edit.
Every writer needs a strong, smart editor with a sense of humor. I am fortunate to have found that person in Annie. She has a wonderful sixth sense about what I’m trying to say and sculpts my intentions into understandable form. I cannot recommend her highly enough if you are looking for the best possible burnishing of your tender manuscript.
-H. Byron Ballard, Author of Asfidity and Mad-Stones
