Does your manuscript need a fairy godmother? Affa the Editor can help. OK, maybe she doesn't really have wings and blonde locks, but she does wear specs and she wields a mean metaphorical pencil. If your manuscript could do with a health check, an IQ test, a cut and polish, a toenail trim, a reducing diet, some flea powder or just a plain old manuscript assessment and edit, send it along as a MS Word attachment to sodgers(AT)iinet.net.au, or click the envelope icon at the top of this site.
What does affordable mean?
Assessments start at $25.00 for manuscripts of up to 5000 words, with $15.00 for every 10,000 words after that.
Editing starts at $25.00 for manuscripts of up to 3000 words of straight fiction, with $15.00 for every 3,500 words after that. (Technical mss or things with headings or multiple errors take longer and so cost more.)
A combo assessment/edit is priced the same way as an edit + $15.00
Affa reckons you can't get much more affordable than that. Affa offers lots of services for writers, so drop her a line about your project today.
