It's a very good story, but...

Many good stories never see the light of day because of misspellings, grammatical errors, and just plain sloppy writing. If you have written a book, but you can't get it past the slush pile on the editor's desk, we will edit your book and make it one that will catch that editor's eye because it is what the industry calls "a clean manuscript."
 
Rates are as follows:
Copyediting (including proofreading and minor changes such as change of tense, misnamed characters, direction to the author for any major changes necessary) - 1.2 cents per word ($.012).
Hard edit (includes recommended changes to the author for continuity, plot problems, etc.) - Basic charge above + $150 per book.
 
For credentials, see "About Us" above.

SPECIAL FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH!
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, my Irish blood has boiled enough to cut the prices in half. You won't find it anywhere else, or any other time this year, so jump fast if you want to take advantage of this special offer. Your copyedit will run you just .6 cents per word ($.006).
THIS HAS JUST BEEN EXPANDED TO LAST THROUGH THE MONTH OF APRIL. DON'T MISS OUT!

Special Bonus:
With the final payment of your edit, I will throw in a free copy of my Promo Paks to help you get started with making your book move.
