Book Boss Manuscript Editing Services

Below is a listing of the different types of editing and what each consists of for those who may be unfamiliar with them. Below that, you’ll find a listing of my currently offered packages and a link to submit your first 5 pages to receive a FREE sample edit done by me personally. If after reviewing your pages I feel I can help you and that we’re a good match, I’ll send you a Proposal which will include an exact quote (standard rates are listed on this page) with any applicable discounts/coupons, as well as available installment plan options and estimated turnaround time! You can usually expect your response from me within 24 hours after submitting your pages!

Line (Copy) Editing

Content (Developmental) Editing

We’ll scour through your entire manuscript, front to back, and using our own unique (top-secret) methods, we’ll provide you with highly detailed suggestions on ways you can revise your manuscript for the best reader experience possible. Specifically, we will look for issues related to: character development, story structure, plot, subplots, timeline, cohesivity, theme, voice, opening and ending scenes, character perspective, and much, much more!

Proofreading

Once your manuscript has been through a complete line and content edit, and you’ve made the appropriate revisions on your end, we’ll complete a thorough proofread of your book. During this final step, we’ll look for any missed or new typos, misspellings, formatting issues, punctuation errors, or any “stragglers” so you can publish your book with confidence and pride. 

Standard/Starting Rate: $0.01/word

5 Page Writing Skills Deep-Dive

If you’re just getting started on your writing journey, and you want to polish up on your grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, etc. before you write or finish your book, this service is for you! I’ll review your first 5 pages and provide a thorough, deep-dive edit of every line. On a separate memo, I’ll provide you with a detailed list of your most common writing mistakes, how to fix them, why you need to fix them, and how to avoid them in the future!

One-Time Fee: $100.00!

If you are interested in any of the above services, please click the button below. Then, fill out the short inquiry form in its entirety. Someone from my team will respond within 24 hours (but in most cases, almost immediately)!

"What types of books do you accept?"

One of the benefits of having a team of elite editors is that we can accept all genres of fiction, memoirs, and even some nonfiction books. There really aren’t any fiction genres or categories we can’t edit. We do have a minimum fee of $500 for smaller projects, such as picture book editing, etc., and we don’t currently edit poetry books. However, anything else, we’re completely open to evaluating!

There is only one strict, unwavering line that we draw, however: WE DO NOT ACCEPT any manuscripts which feature any of the following:

Any stories that feature dubious consent, incest, rape, any form of sexual abuse, abuse of minors (in any form), or abuse of animals.

If you are unsure whether your manuscript falls in our “will not edit” category, it’s always best to ask first. We can often work around certain issues, but please do tell us this upfront so we aren’t caught off-guard!

Finally, please note: if you’re not ready, willing, and able to begin editing immediately, it would be best for you to wait until your manuscript is complete (or pages from being complete) before requesting your FREE sample edit.
