Editing Services,
Picture Book Manuscripts

Picture Book rates are slightly different than rates for full-length manuscripts. While they have fewer words, each of those words works harder when it comes to carrying plot, mood, theme, and characterization. Because of this, it is common for picture book rates to be based on specific kinds of services rather than word count. 



Combine two services for a reduced price. Manuscripts will get one pass for content and story, as well as a later pass for copyediting



Developmental Edit

Dive into story and wording. You'll receive margin notes and a detailed letter.



A final clean-up on your Picture Book manuscript.
