Final Editorial Feedback
After the editing is completed and the file is given back to the author, the author has the option, after making whatever corrections, to send the book back for a complete read-through and final edit. (all books will also get a review to be posted on Amy's Bookshelf Reviews when the book is released.)

If you just want Editorial Feedback for your document, it is $1 per page. (page requirements listed above) 

​Amy's Process:

Use the contact form at the bottom of the page and add to the subject line "Editing Services"
Give basic details of your book, page count (and half pages still count as full, blanks do not), and word count. We can discuss either through email, or virtually using Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or even Facebook Messenger Video.

Amy will respond for more information within 48 hours (usually sooner depending on the day and time (EST)). After that, Amy will communicate via email, virtual meetings, or both. Amy will even give you a sample of my editing, so you can send Amy a chapter, and Amy will be glad to edit for you for free.

Payment: PayPal Invoice. You will be invoiced from Essence Enterprises.

Half payment is due upfront, the rest when the first editing process is complete. 

​For each book title, Amy will provide a contract, for you to review, and sign. Amy will sign and send you back a copy.

The price based on your document will be sent, and payment instructions as well, as well as turnaround time for when it will be completed.

There are different ways that Amy edits documents, and Amy will use the one that works best for you. Amy also wants you to tell her if there are things you want her to look for, such as character development, any unanswered questions, things like that.

 

​Amy also, and this is free and not included in any of the prices, after reading the FINAL version, will write a review for the book. The author can get a copy of the review that will be posted by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews, and when the book's release goes live, it will be posted on that date (and in many different places). See Amy's Bookshelf Reviews requests and policies page.
