I want to help writers avoid some of the mistakes I made with my first book. I offer line-editing with free developmental notes. I also offer interior formatting.
"Working with Lila was a delight. She understood what I needed and went above and beyond to ensure that my expectations were met and exceeded. She has an eye for detail and I was extremely happy with the formatting of my ebook. In the past I formatted my own books, but hiring Lila saved me hours of time re-learning the system. I was able to rest assured that a digital editor who values excellence was formatting my book for Kindle and Createspace."
I only accept clean material (no profanity or sexual innuendo, please).
General prices (ask for custom quote for discounts):
I charge $0.015 (1 1/2 cents) per word for line editing services of nonfiction material.
$0.03 per word for line editing services of fiction material, with free big picture notes and developmental suggestions.
For interior formatting, the charge will be a flat fee of $125 per ebook for both a Kindle-ready and Createspace-ready file; $75 if already in a Createspace template.
You will receive up to three edits for this price; if any more are required, I will charge an extra $0.01 per word for each additional edit.
I offer 5 pages (or first chapter, whichever is shortest) as a free sample of my work and to see if we would work well together.
These are ballpark figures.
