Publishing Consultations

Query Letter Review & Line Edit
$250 (or $225 if combined with another service)
Your manuscript is polished and ready-to-go. But to pique the interest of your dream agent, you'll need a query letter that's just as good--if not better. When you hire us for a query letter edit, we don't just fix the letter and send you back a new one with no explanations. We walk you through our proposed edits so that you can learn from the process for your next project.


Synopsis Review & Line Edit
$250 (or $225 if combined with another service)
It's harder than it looks to squeeze the highlights of your entire manuscript into a single page. Yet more and more agents are requesting a synopsis along with the query letter. Let us help you refine and polish yours.


Nonfiction Book Proposal Review & Line Edit
$0.05/word (2,500 word minimum)
Let us edit your proposal and your sample chapters so you can give your great idea its best shot at becoming a real book. This service includes comments in the margins as well as line edits made directly into the text via track changes.
