Services

Whether you have an idea in need of a plot, or you’re looking to polish a completed manuscript, MoosEditorial will help you find that diamond and make it shine.


I’m most familiar with YA and MG, fantasy and science fiction, but I’m open to anything as long as it’s not overly graphic. Aside from spelling and some grammatical errors, I won’t actually change anything in your story. The line between preference and objective improvement can blur easily when an editor actively fixes the problems they see, so instead of making those changes myself, I make suggestions that diagnose the problems I find. Then you’re free to fix them in your own unique voice. It’s your work and I want it to remain yours.

First Chapter/1,000 words: Free

To determine if I’ll be a good fit for you, I give a free sample edit of the first 1,000 words or first chapter of your manuscript. This is only available for Copy Editing or Structural Editing (details on these services below).

**NEW** Manuscript Critique: Free (for a limited time)

Having trouble figuring out which service you need? I now offer a free overview critique. I’ll look over your manuscript and determine what level of editing is needed, even if you choose not to hire me. This does not include any actual editing, but simply addresses what level of editing you should focus on. But this service is free for a limited time, then will increase to a $50 flat fee.

Copy Editing: $3 per 1,000 words

(20% off when included with other services)

Copy editing will focus on the writing itself: grammar, spelling, sentence flow, etc. With this service you’ll receive a copy of your manuscript with highlights and suggestions for improving grammar and sentence structure.

Structural Editing: $4 per 1,000 words

(20% off when included with other services)

Structural editing will focus on the overall flow of the story: scene flow, pacing, imagery, etc. This kind of critique will overlook grammar and spelling, but help you write better scenes and make the story flow better as a whole. With this service you’ll receive a copy of your manuscript with chapter reviews and specific sections highlighted with suggestions for improvement.

Developmental Editing: $5 per 1,000 words

(20% off when included with other services)

Developmental editing will focus on the big picture issues: plot, character development, world building, etc. This kind of editing will overlook the writing and flow of the story in order to help you build a better story from the ground up. With this service you’ll receive a feedback document covering each aspect of story structure. Be prepared for tough love with this service.
