AUTHORESS EDITS:  Editorial Services by Authoress

I offer full line-editing services for 3-chapter partials.  Here are the details:

  • The fee is $95 for the first 3 chapters of your manuscript, or as close to 30 pages as possible. (If your chapters are short, you can send as many chapters as add up to approximately 30 pages.)  Please do not send more than 3 chapters if the total page count is over approximately 30.  (A couple of pages over won't matter.)  Please do not send partial chapters (end your submission at the end of a chapter).
  • $50 will be payable upon my agreement to take your project.  As soon as I receive your payment and your project, your place in line will be secured.  The final $45 will be payable upon completion of the project.
  • Payments will be accepted via Paypal.
  • Please email me at authoress.edits(at) if you would like to hire me.  I will respond to all emails in the order in which they are received.
  • Please also feel free to email me there with any questions you may have.  Please do not send editing questions to my facelesswords account.
  • What you will receive:  A detailed line edit and an editorial letter.  

  • I also offer 3-page critiques for $18, payable up front.  If you'd like some fresh eyes on the opening 3 pages of your novel, I'm your gal.  Email me at authoress.edits(at)

    Additionally, I occasionally offer 75-page line edits for $260.  I will announce these as they become available, and they will be first come, first served.


    1. I was just about to tweet your post, but then discovered you don't have the share buttons below your post. :( I'm still going to tweet it, but those buttons make is so much easier.

    2. Do you print it up the old fashioned way and use a red pen? I didn't know you offered this service and will remember for the future when I'm ready! I can't wait -- especially if there's a red pen involved. Or I suppose Track changes in red. :)

    3. No red pen! But I do Track Changes in purple. Just because I want to. :)

    4. Hi Authoress,

      Can you break down 30 pages into a word count. When I calculate the first 30 pages of my WIP it comes to approximately 8000. 7500 if you end at a chapter break.


    5. Hi, Bill -- I don't really pay attention to word count over pages, but at the average of 250 words per page, that would be about 7500 words, yes. I'm more interested in getting to a chapter ending, though. So if your first 2 chapters total 28 pages, stop there, but if your first 3 chapters go to 34 pages, stop there.

    6. You do have Share Buttons actually - beneath the Posted by Authoress line. :)

    7. That's because I finally added them. :)
