Manuscript Writing Services

Little Leaf Copy Editing/Little Leaf Copy, LLC - Manuscript Writing

Creative writing is personal. You spend months, if not years, perfecting your plot, developing your characters, and discovering the depth and passion of your work. You may be terrified to release your manuscript into the world, yet only by letting others read your story will you be able to amuse, inspire, and evoke change. Whether you’re planning to self-publish, or you’re hoping to send your manuscript to an agent, you want your writing to reflect your true, creative self. Little Leaf Copy Editing’s writing services will give your manuscript an academic edge, the type of edge that will turn the page.

Beta Read

I will take off my editor's hat and assess your manuscript from purely a reader's perspective. You’ll receive a review that offers insights on your manuscript's story arc, your characters' strengths and weaknesses, and your story’s overall readability. I will also make note of any possible gaps or plot holes.

$50.00 for manuscripts up to 20,000 words, then $1.25 per 500 words thereafter.

I loved how Katie brought out the important details of my story. She helped me bring my ideas together more cohesively so the reader can digest them. She gave me great suggestions on how to improve the blog post and important grammatical corrections so my blog post looks professional and polished.
