Information

My editing covers 3-in-1 services, including content, line and copy editing. Some of the things I focus on include:

  • Plot holes
  • Inconsistent characters
  • Unrealistic dialogue
  • Errors in point-of-view
  • Style and voice
  • Sentence or paragraph structure
  • Word choice
  • Grammar
  • Punctuation
  • Spelling

These things will be processed via tracked changes.

I accept all genres except for non-fiction. I accept short stories, novellas, and novels, but no novel that is part of a series unless it is the first instalment, and no poetry. If your manuscript features sensitive material (things such as sexual content or violence) please pre-warn me. I draw the line at rape, pedophilia, and incest. There may be other things that I have not listed, so if you give me the content warnings, I will decide whether or not I will edit your work.

If you are interested, and would like me to sample your manuscript, send me either of the required amounts: 500 words for a short story, 1,500 for a novella, and 2,500 for a novel. I will edit and return it by the following day. This does not lower the prices or shorten the time slots.

If you are satisfied with my method, and wish for me to edit the rest, I will work out the price and time slot depending on the word count. I will then ask for a 50% deposit, followed by a Word document of the manuscript. Once you have paid the deposit, I will begin editing. As I work on one project at a time, there is the possibility that I will be working on one come your request. If a present slot is filled, I will move your manuscript to the next available opening. On the due date, I will send you the edited manuscript and ask for the remaining 50% of money.

My current rates are as follows:

A fixed price of £10 per short story (up to 7,500 words.)

Over that count, and it is £0.002 per word, even by one word.

If you do not work in pounds, I will calculate the equivalent currency.

All payments are made via PayPal.

I cannot make exceptions for anything of the above.

If you would like to discuss this further, email me at: mskatutin@gmail.com.

In your email, if able to, please answer the following questions:

  • Do you want a sample edit?
  • What is the exact word count of your work?
  • If any, what are the content warnings?

I will reply within 24 hours.
