Some things I can do:


Book Doctoring

  • give you a beta read of a completed manuscript (any level of detail, it’s up to you!)
  • read a partial draft and help you get unstuck with your characters or plot
  • brainstorm with you via text-chat, phone, or video call

BY-THE-WORD PRICING

I offer this option so you can have a clearer idea of what you’ll be paying. It’s completely at your discretion; if you want a more personalized option, I’m happy to charge by the hour!

Basic beta read or developmental edit: I write a detailed general response, but don’t leave comments on the manuscript. $0.005/word.

Detailed edit: A detailed general response plus line-by-line suggestions and comments. $.01/word.

  • answer questions via email

FLAT-RATE STARTER PACKAGE

I offer this option so you can have a clearer idea of what you’ll be paying and what you’ll be getting. It’s completely at your discretion; if you want a more personalized option, I’m happy to charge by the hour!

If you know you need to learn about a topic but you have no idea where to start, this may be the right choice for you. I’ll…

  • email you a list of simple questions to help me understand what you’re looking for
  • put together a list of 15 or more books, articles, and websites on your topic
  • schedule a half-hour conversation (your choice of text-chat, voice, or video) to talk through the list and help you create a plan of action. We can also discuss how to access the resources not freely available online.

Price: $125


My specialties are Regency, Georgian, and Revolutionary War. Within Regency/Georgian, I’ve done a lot of research on politics and Anglo-Jewish life. But I’m up for anything!
