Digital Reads Editing

Since the past five years, I have been fortunate enough to work with some great authors who have loved my editing and so have their readers. 


Copy editing + proofreading + beta reading

I use Microsoft Word track changes for this.

This includes

  • Correcting spelling, grammar, and punctuation
  • Checking the similar sounding words
  • Modifying words which are repeatedly used in a sentence and throughout the story
  • Correcting the tenses

Charges for the complete package of beta reading and line editing is US$0.008 per word. 

Rushed charges would increase by US$80 depending on the word count and expedited delivery. 

For only beta reading, kindly check the terms here

Copy editing + proofreading

Time taken would depend on the word count and the amount of work needed in the manuscript.

Charges would be US$0.007 per word. 

Rushed charges would increase by US$70 depending on the word count and time duration.

Copy editing + rewriting of lines

This includes editing and rewriting lines to make the prose flow smoother and build up the scene. 

Time taken would depend on the amount of work needed in the manuscript.

A sample editing and rewriting of 2 pages would be done to see if our styles match before taking up the work.

Charges would be US$0.01 per word.
