Copyediting (for stories or essays)
The copyediting package is for essays or short stories that are nearly ready to submit for publication. I will edit your short stories according to Chicago Manual of Style and your essay will depend on where you plan to submit it. If it’s to a literary journal, it will be according to CMOs guidelines, but if it’s news sites, then AP styling will be applied. Cost: $15 per 1,000 words.
Online Conference – add on
As an add-on, you can schedule an online conference where we will discuss the edits and critiques for your work in detail. I can also answer any additional questions you may have or offer guidance if requested. Cost: $30.

“Thanks to your awesome beta read that was really a dev edit, I got an immediate request to see the whole manuscript. I felt as if you guided me the whole way, and I’m a longtime vet.”
Fenley Cooper, Author of “The Last Glimmering City”
“I found Diamond’s critique services to be one of a kind. I truly feel lucky to have found such a reliable, honest and professional reader. Her feedback helped me to strengthen my novel precisely where it needed it by pointing out both what’s working and what’s not in a well-organized report. I will certainly be coming back to Diamond for my next project.”
