The road to publication is a tough one. Putting aside for the moment the fact that you actually have to write a book, the expense of getting it looked at, edited, and published can be far more than a simple “this is just something I wrote on the weekends” budget can bear. It’s not uncommon for edits to cost hundreds of dollars or more. And those might be hundreds of dollars you don’t have.
So what can I do to help you, writer?
How about a deal for the next 30 days?
The Welcome To Writer Fight Club Sale
If you’re writing and come to me for editing or developmental advice**, your first 9000 words WILL COST YOU A PENNY EACH.
(** “editing and developmental advice” is defined as ANY kind of edit, from copyediting to developmental)
What Happens After 9000 words?
Starting with word 9001, the rate returns to its variable amount, based on whatever kind of editing you need (so anywhere from .02 to .11 on average) – but that’s something we work out. You’ll know well in advance.
How Do I Know What Kind of Edit I Need?
Here’s a quick guideline:
- If you need the sort of grammar/punctuation/continuity edit that you’d receive from an English teacher (commas, periods, quotations, sentence fragments, vague sentences, etc), that’s a copy edit.
- If you need a deeper edit that looks at dialogue, pacing, and just a little plot and all of the above, that’s a line edit.
- If you need a deeper edit than that, one that looks at character development, plot development, actions, genre appropriate material, mood, tone, POV, and all of the above, that’s a developmental edit.
To give you a frame of reference, without this sale, these edits would normally cost you:
- Copy Edit of 9000 words = $180
- Line Edit of 9000 words = $360
- Developmental Edit of 9000 words = $540
- 9000 words edited during this sale = $90
BUT FOR THE NEXT 30 DAYS (until May 22, 2014) YOU CAN GET ANY OF THESE EDITS FOR $90.
$90 to get your novel off the ground isn’t a bad deal.
How Do I Get Started?
If you’re interested, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let’s talk. Don’t let budget be the obstacle keeping you from telling your story and making art.
