Message From the Editor
I’m back with the The God Equation. I’ve done some rewriting, but no major surgery on the piece. At this point I’d like to get a medium copy edit plus constructive feedback. Also, if you’re willing to do it, I’d like to get your edits back in the form of a mailed paper hard copy, with edits in red ink. If so, I’d be happy to pay for any extra time or costs involved (including postage). Let me know.
Oren passed your request along to me for copyediting and wordcraft feedback. I’m just as comfortable working on hard copy, so no worries there; I’ve added a flat $5 to the quote to cover printing and shipping costs.
From your digital copy, I can tell that you already have a strong command of writing mechanics (for example, how punctuation works with dialogue tags), so I’m excited for all of the possibilities that the additional wordcraft feedback will open up for taking this story to the next level. The formatting in your digital copy made me curious about your writing process. If you’d care to share a quick writer’s history with me, it might help me tailor my edits and feedback to better meet your needs.
Please let me know if you have any questions before we get started. Looking forward to working with you on this story!
I normally require about two weeks to work on a story of your length. But I happen to have an opening in my schedule for April 11 and 12. If payment is submitted by 9 a.m. on Wednesday, April 11, then the story will be edited and mailed by Friday, April 13. Otherwise, the story will be edited and mailed within two weeks (10 business days) of receiving the full payment. This timeline does not account for shipping times, only for when the copy editor will have the story delivered to the post office.
This price is not an estimate; it is a guarantee. The editing price is good for three months starting on April 10, 2018.
Editing Price: $180
Expedite Fee: $0
