Editing Services

Do you have a manuscript, short story, or blurb you’re struggling with? Do you want an extra set of eyes on your project before you query or publish?

I’d love to help you. I am a fiction editor and independent historical fantasy author with a passion for words. I attended Athabasca University, majoring in English Literature with a minor in Historical Western Civilizations, and I am experienced in editing Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult fiction of all genres and steamyness levels (yes, for the purpose of this write-up, steamyness is a word). I’ve spent the last few years concentrating on my own projects, but I’m happy to announce that I am once again able to offer my editing services to aspiring and published authors.

DEVELOPMENTAL EDIT (I will provide a 5 page sample edit to see if we’re the right fit)

$0.006 per word for projects 10,000 words or more. For smaller projects or fast turn around times, contact me for pricing.

Critique partners are wonderful, but are they really giving your project the attention it deserves? Before any line editing or proofreading is done, a thorough developmental edit can make your writing go from good to fantastic. This is my specialty. My job as your developmental editor is to evaluate your work and help you with plot, pacing, character development, consistency, voice, dialog, and world building. I will also help you catch spelling and grammatical errors (but this does not count as a comprehensive line edit).

My goal is to pinpoint your strengths, while helping you identify and work on problem areas in your writing. And let’s face it, we all have them. When we’re done working together, I want you to feel confident in your project and ready for the next step.

 

PROOF READING

$0.004 per word for projects 10,000 words of more. For fast turn around (48 hours or less), contact for special pricing.

If you’ve already had your work edited and corrected, perhaps you need a fresh pair of eyes on it before you publish or query. I will scour your manuscript for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors, and send it back to you wrapped in a red, shiny bow. Okay, not a real bow, but a virtual bow. It will give you the confidence to present your project and get one step closer to publication.

 

BACK COVER BLURB ANALYSIS 

$30 to critique it.

$50 to help you write it.

Some say the blurb is the hardest part of the book to write. And they’re right! The blurb is what catches the reader’s attention and can make or break a sale. No pressure, right? Well the good news for you is, I love writing blurbs. They’re my specialty. Once or twice I’ve been called a “blurbologist.” Okay, maybe I made that name up, but I love writing them. I have helped many authors create attention grabbing blurbs, and I’d be happy to help you perfect or construct yours.

“Tammy edited my short novella, Breaking the Skin, and was wonderful to work with. She is extremely thorough while allowing the writer to retain their unique voice. She also worked with me for a quick turn-around, which I really appreciated. I wouldn’t hesitated to use Tammy’s services again.” – P. Jameson, Bestselling Paranormal Romance Author.
