Editing


For all editing services (please note: this does not include the manuscript critique or reread report), you’ll receive an annotated manuscript with my notes. I use the Track Changes feature in Word so you can accept and reject edits individually and you’ll always know what I’ve changed. All page estimates are based on the standard: 250 words per page.

Manuscript Critique

This option includes comprehensive feedback on your manuscript, including notes on strengths and opportunities for improvement in terms of readability, clarity, consistency, dialogue, and more. Also includes suggestions for your next steps. Please note: you will not receive an annotated copy of your manuscript.
Flat rate $7 per 1,000 words

Developmental Edit

Developmental editing includes comprehensive feedback on the storytelling elements, such as character arcs, action, dialogue, description, exposition, pacing, and emotional connection. I note specific actions to be taken, page by page. You will receive an annotated copy of your manuscript in addition to detailed notes on strengths and opportunities for improvement.
Starts at $10 per 1,000 words

Substantive Edit

Substantive (or line) editing includes feedback on rewriting or moving parts of your book to enhance clarity, consistency, and readability. This may include character and plot development, setting, dialogue, and more. You will receive an annotated copy of your manuscript.
Starts at $16 per 1,000 words

Copy Edit and Proofread

Copy editing includes minor corrections like spelling, punctuation, capitalization, and grammar – as well as notes and suggestions on unclear wording and awkward sentences. Includes two passes—one to edit and another for proofreading after you revise. You will receive an annotated copy of your manuscript.
Starts at $12 per 1,000 words

For authors who have already had a critique, substantive edit, or developmental edit with Jeni. This report includes feedback revisions made after the previous edit, as well as recommendations on next steps. You will not receive an annotated copy of your manuscript.
