Welcome to Tactical Edits!
Writing is hard. Preparing to publish can feel like a nightmare, but you aren’t alone. Let me come along side you and help prepare that manuscript for the industry.
Getting to Know You
I offer a free first chapter critique to see if we’re compatible. I read most genres. I don’t have any experience with YA or MG. Adult manuscripts are probably more my speed, but I won’t reject off hand.
Short Stories (25k and under)
For manuscripts under 25k I offer a flat rate of $50. Copy edits only.
Developmental Edits- $5 per 1,000 words
Does your book start in the right place? Is the pacing tight? Are the characters well developed? These are a few of the questions I will explore with you. Includes a 3-5 pg summary of my thoughts on your book. Does not include copy edits.
Copy Edits- $8 per 1,000 words
Proofreading. An annotative edit of inconsistencies of grammar, spelling, punctuation, formatting, and fonts. Does not include comments on story structure or development.
Re-read Report- $50
A 1-2 pg of my response to your final product. Does not include copy edits or developmental comments.
