Somebody has to write it and I don't want it to be me. If this sounds like you, The Innovative Pen is the right solution to your dilemma. Here's a partial listing of what's available to you:
- New customers, and new projects of current clients, will receive a 20-minute consultation, via phone or email.
- Before a new customer becomes a client, a sample of the manuscript (approx. 5-10% of total project) must be sent via email.
- Editorial rates are based upon the industry standard of 250 words = 1 page. The minimum project cost is $100.
- Rates vary depending on the services contracted and a nonrefundable deposit is required. (NOTE: No work will be initiated until a signed contract is agreed upon and the deposit is paid.)
- Express Proofreading: Quick read of an already polished work to check for minor errors
- Basic Proofreading: Includes proofing for spelling mistakes, typographical errors, punctuation, capitalization errors, and awkward grammar
- Extended Proofreading/Line-by-line Copy-editing: Includes services listed in Basic Proofreading plus proofing for general structure, clarity, sense, word choice, redundancies, and inconsistencies in narrative voice
- Comprehensive Editing/Rewriting: For texts needing a more extensive rewrite or a more aggressive edit this level of service includes suggestions inserted directly into the text. For passages that require even more clarity, the client will be provided with additional comments and questions.
