Message From the Editor

The basic feedback I have received from “sample readers” is that my word usage can be cumbersome and at times overly descriptive, which may contribute to a greater demand in processing of the story by the reader or lack of “accessibility” or a distraction from the actual story itself. I’m not sure to what degree this is occurring, but an objective evaluation may help. Thank you. I can be reached at 908-285-1626 Pete

Hi Pete,

Our heavy editing service with additional wordcraft feedback would certainly go a long way in polishing your description. From your sample, I see that you have strong ideas of how to represent your characters and the action, but there’s a lot more we can do here on the sentence and paragraph level to make the most of pacing and bring the prose to life.

A word count of 179,000 is quite high, and this size of project would take most editors longer than the deadline of April 30 unless it’s considered a rush job. I’ve included some information on my availability and timeline below. If you need an earlier turnaround than June, I can refer you to some fantastic editors who might be able to take this project on.

Let me know how you’d like to move forward or if you have any questions.

All the best,




The earliest I could start work on this project is May 15, and I would need six weeks to complete it. If payment and the document are submitted in full prior to May 15, the work would be returned to you by June 27. I've included an option for expediting the project that would allow me to prioritize it over other items on my calendar; the expedited turnaround time would be five weeks, so if we started on May 15, you would receive my edits by June 19. Please note that I cannot guarantee these dates for you unless your order is submitted by the end of this week (April 13), as new projects are always being added to the calendar. After the end of this week, the turnaround times would remain the same, but the dates would be subject to availability.


This price is not an estimate; it is a guarantee. The editing price is good for three months starting on April 10, 2018.
