TURN AROUND TIME: 5-14 days. Plan accordingly.

COST: $0.005 per word + PayPal fees due at the time scheduled. ($0.005 x 50,000 words = $250)

SCHEDULING: In advance. Last minute spots are not common.

SUGGESTED FOR: Manuscripts that have already undergone content editing.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Proofreading is a less in-depth line edit. I will be checking for grammar, spelling, punctuation, repetitive wording, awkward phrases.

No content or development notes will be given, and no critiques or notes to improve narration, pacing, characterization, or plot. If you need help with any of these things, please considering content editing, which is available in 1-3 round and cover all the bases.

RESERVATION FEE: A non-refundable $20.00 fee is expected up front to hold your place. If the manuscript comes in on time, the fee is deducted from the final cost. Start dates always occur on Monday, so if it is later than Wednesday of that week, the fee is  intelligible for deduction.

REFUNDS: No refunds on 1 round edits or proofreading. You can reschedule or cancel at any time prior to the start date, but if cancelled after they are started, I will turn in what has been done (if the invoice was paid.)

ADDITIONAL NOTES: Even though this is a proofing round, it will still take 1-2 weeks, especially for full-length novels. As a professional editor, I strive to give every manuscript my full attention, and I do not deliver rushed work.
