Description

Ma Bones Editing: open to all genreas, specialized in poetry and creative nonfiction.

 

Editing Level A: substantive editing, at this level Ma will guide you in major revision of your work. Helping you construct the missing pieces of your rough draft to take it to that next polished step. The main focus of this level is examining audience, purpose, and comprehension found in the writing.   

 

At this level you will get five guaranteed zoom meetings with Ma (30 minutes each), a complete review of one manuscript, and a list of recommended resources for your next steps.  

 

Editing Level B: Copyediting primarily focuses on details and consistency. Names, dates, places, references, punctuation, character descriptions, repetition, and etcetera.  This level Ma will also look at the physical look of your manuscript, checking for things which could potentially hinder readability (like appropriate headers, footnotes, page breaks/indentations).  

At this level you will get five guaranteed zoom meetings with Ma (30 minutes each), a complete review of one manuscript, and a list of recommended resources for your next steps.  

 

Editing Level C: Proofreading is were MA will check for all previous corrections (if having chosen another editing level). There will be a hyper focus on correct cross-referencing, text alignment, and the overall quality of the presentation of the manuscript (aka: is this book ready to be queried). If self-publishing, Ma will also examine the outer face of the manuscript (cover, dust jacket) looking for spelling errors or text alignment issues.  

 

At this level you will get five guaranteed zoom meetings with Ma (30 minutes each), a complete review of one manuscript, and a list of recommended resources for your next steps.  

 

*At the price of 500 dollars you get one editing package (A, B, C) from your chosen editor. Please make sure you pick the package which would best suit the current draft of your work. We look at manuscripts up to 1-500 pages in length.
