I used Henia’s ghostwriting services to edit my novel – what a blessing! Henia gave me great feedback, grammar critique, even copy editing advice, all for a reasonable price. And nice turn times too. I will definitely have to use this service again….
Now that your manuscript is completed, it’s a good idea to have someone look over your book and point
out mistakes you may have missed, and to make suggestions you may not have thought about. No matter
how well written your book may be, it’s almost impossible to be objective about your own work. That is
why it’s always good to have a second pair of eyes look at it.
I offer three levels of editing:
Light Editing $3 per page
At this level, I correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, and typos.
Basic Editing $4 per page
This level includes everything in light editing, plus:
Taking out unnecessary words from your sentences — words that only bog down your writing and
detract from its impact.
Taking out or replacing words that are used too repetitively.
Heavy Editing $6 per page
This level includes everything in basic editing, plus:
Rewriting sentences or whole paragraphs that are awkward or unclear, or taking out sentences,
or paragraphs, if they are only making your writing cumbersome and causing your
writing to lose its impact.
I do all this while keeping your story and your voice intact.
The first thing I do when I get your manuscript, is read several pages. Then I tell you what level of
editing your manuscript needs, and explain why.
You, of course, are still free to choose whichever level of editing you wish, regardless of my
recommendations. I only give you my assessment so you can make an informed decision.
Please note that a page according to industry standards is double spaced text — 250 words, and that is
what I go according to. Of course, some pages might have more words and some less, but my prices per
page are per every 250 words.
Please note that if a lot of paragraphs of your manuscript need rewriting, that would basically be
rewriting the book, and we are then talking about ghostwriting and ghostwriting prices.
You always have complete control of your work. You make the final decision about which editorial
changes are kept in the final draft. I never delete any of your words. If I think a word, phrase, or sentence
should be taken out, I strike it through so you can still see it, and put it back if you choose. I point out
any new words that I put in your writing, so you can decide whether to keep my suggested changes.
