FAQs about Vital Wordplay
Can I book a trial consult?
Yes! After sharing a bit about your project to make sure I offer the services you need, I'm happy to set up a free 30-minute consultation. You can click the "Get In Touch" button on any web page to e-mail me, fill out the Contact form below, or reach out on social media at @vitalwordplay.
What are your fees?
As a certified editor, I offer three levels of copy editing to meet your budget and manuscript needs. For a typical-length book (60,000 words) that needs medium editing, a fee of $1,000-plus is not unusual. A less-involved manuscript review option, or edits of part of a manuscript, is available, as is proofreading of a manuscript that has already been formatted. I also provide fact checking and long-form writing services. Learn more at Services and at Mission & Me.
Will content still sound like me?
Whether I review a manuscript's overall structure or provide line-by-line editing, my job is to help your voice shine through. I provide an up-front summary of the broad factors to be addressed in an edit and note any suggested changes that could alter meanings. The content will still remain a reflection of your intelligence, passion, and personality, though I will serve as a guidepost on professional publication standards. Ultimately, my goal is to help you put your best foot forward.
