Editing

For those of you who don’t know, I am a professional editor and am available to edit manuscripts for fiction and non-fiction authors. The price for structural editing or proofreading is ONE CENT PER WORD. Line editing will be quoted per manuscript.

A structural edit of 50,000 words will therefore cost $500 and a proofread $250. I have a minimum charge of $50, so any manuscript of 5000 words or under will cost  $50. I am happy to do an edit of just a few chapters if required, although I will be able to assess the book more effectively if I read it all.

Payment is accepted by cheque or direct deposit if you are in Australia or by paypal if you are overseas. I require a $25-$50 deposit before I begin work and payment will be required in full before the completed manuscript is handed over.

Members of Omega Writers will receive 10% off any line edit. See www.omegawriters.org for more.

Please no horror or erotica, graphic sex or gratuitous violence. Please note that this doesn’t mean no sex and violence, just if your content is graphic. If this is the case I will not be able to edit it.

 

Testimonials

I self-edited my first self-published book because I thought I couldn’t afford an editor and because I believed I could find enough of the errors myself. That mistake cost me thousands of dollars, shattered my confidence and had me withdrawing the book before I even marketed it.

Now I have paid Lynne a very reasonable and affordable amount (much less than I expected!) for editing each of my last four novels and in that price she picked up spelling mistakes, grammatical problems, formatting issues, inconsistent ideas, time line inaccuracies and made suggestions that improved each story in every way. In doing this she always kept the integrity of the books and understood my heart and purpose behind them. And yes, these are in books I thought were ready to go to the printer before Lynne even looked at them.

I now have quality books that I market with confidence, that are better than I could ever have imagined. I thank God for Lynne and would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone looking for an editor.

Lynne Stringer has edited two of my books and I have been completely happy with her work. Lynne is very thorough and professional. Her suggestions have enabled me to prepare my manuscripts for printing with greater confidence in their final presentation. I have already recommended Lynne to other authors, and will continue to do so.
