Menu of Services

I provide comprehensive editing services for novels, memoirs, short stories, poetry, essays and other works, both fiction and non-fiction.

 

I also provide additional services in support of authors querying agents and/or submitting to publishing houses.

 

I follow the Chicago Manual of Style (17th Edition) for all projects.

Manuscript Consultation

This service gives you a detailed report to guide you through revision of a next or final draft.

 

I highlight the strengths and weaknesses of your writing with clear explanations and detailed suggestions for improvement. 

 

Abundant, specific examples from your work accompany cogent analysis to ensure the evaluation is clear and easy for you to follow.

One coaching hour included.

Total Editorial Package

This option is best for the writer whose work is already in a 2nd+ draft and ready to be finalized.

 

With the Total Editorial package, you get your entire manuscript edited line by line (line-editing).
(I duplicate your document in GoogleDrive and mark the copy.)

In addition to these line and scene specific notes, you also get a 10-page (minimum) report that identifies overall patterns in your work and a broad view analysis to help you become a better writer.

One coaching hour included.

Hourly Rate

For smaller projects, (i.e. short stories, children's books, poetry, query letters, proposals, blogs, web content, business documents, etc.) you can hire me at a rate of $55/hr.

Total Editorial 
+ 2 coaching calls

Save $45 when you purchase two coaching calls at the same time as your editorial.

 

Our first call occurs after I complete my first reading of your manuscript, and before I edit/write your evaluation. This call helps me to more deeply understand your vision so that I can tailor my feedback to help you hit what you're aiming for.

On our second call, after you receive my report, we deepen your understanding of the feedback and create a clear plan for you to implement it correctly.

author, The Sign

I hold Cassandra's multiple talents as an editor in the highest regard. Her clear understanding of the English language has been an invaluable aid to my writing. She goes the extra mile to help and encourage me to improve my writing. 

I consult her on all matters writing and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to my fellow authors.
