Follow this guide to determine which category your project will fall under:

Editing

I offer free sample edits up to 5 pages*! If you’re interested to see if I’m the right editor for you, send me an email at sheenahfreitas[at]gmail[dot]com.

Beta Read

$0.50/page*

Some people might call this a critique, but it’s not as comprehensive as a developmental edit. I read your work as a reader and point out what works and what doesn’t work from a reader’s standpoint. I’ll let you know if you’re doing too much telling and not enough showing or if your characters all have the same voice. I’ll even help you categorize the book! Do note: this service is for FICTION work only. My preferences are: literary, thrillers, and anything written for the middle grade and young adult crowd.

Copy Editing

$1.75/page* (Includes a free proofread)

From Grammarly:
The tasks involved in copy editing include checking written material for grammar, spelling, style, and punctuation issues before it’s prepared for proofreading. A copy editor may also do a rewrite, if necessary, to fix any problems with transitions, wordiness, jargon, and to ensure the style of the piece fits with the publication. This work is known as revision.

Note: I also include some critique as I go and do some fact-checking to ensure everything is correct. I’m open to all fiction genres. If you write non-fiction, please note that I’m strongest at editing works in the following genres: alternative health, spirituality, entrepreneurial/business, self-improvement, and writing. If you’re a non-fiction writer that writes anything else, just let me know the subject and I’ll let you know how well-versed I am if you’re seeking an editor who knows the subject (which I highly recommend you do get an editor who is well-versed in your subject).

Proofreading

$0.80/page*

From Grammarly:
When the material is nearly a finished product, meaning it has been edited, laid out, and designed, the proofreader searches for typographical errors. The proofreader works with a facsimile of a finished product, or a proof (hence the term proofreading). Proofreaders don’t suggest major changes to the text; rather, they look for minor text and formatting errors and confirm the material is ready for publication.

Editing Packages

The Max: $3/page*
Includes two copy edits and proofread. Additional copy edit round: $1/page*

The Ruby: $3.25/page*
FOR FICTION WORK ONLY. Includes: beta read, two copy edits, and a proofread. Additional copy edit round: $1/page*

Notes

*A “page” can be different depending on line space, font, size of page, etc. For convenience, I measure a page based on word count. Every 250 words = 1 page. If you have an odd number of pages (for example: 1,552 words = 6.208 pages) I will round up to the next whole page (example: 6.208 pages = 7 pages).

Consultations

Consultations are $100/hour and are available through Skype, Facebook Messenger, or FaceTime.

For whatever block of time you request, you will have my undivided attention. I’m available to answer any questions about story, any part of the production process, book description copy, marketing — just about anything book-related!

Please note that you do not need to book a consultation for one or two questions. Consultations are for people who aren’t quite sure what direction they need to go in or have a lot of questions about self-publishing and what the best options for them are.

Something Else…

Looking for something else that’s not listed? Don’t hesitate to inquire about it. I’ve done indexing jobs, archiving jobs, webmaster work, etc. I’ll let you know if I don’t have particular experience in what you’re seeking.
