My 10-page sample edit is comprehensive—the same as you'll receive during the actual editing process for a full manuscript.
For no charge, I'm also happy to assess your sample and give a quote with specifics on the type of editing recommended. However, an in-depth sample edit will give you a detailed example of what working with me will be like, line for line.
Pages are based on academic standards, which is 12-pt font (often Times New Roman) double-spaced with 1" page margins. If your file is formatted differently, that's not a problem, I can reformat it and apply the edits to 10 pages.
I work with Track Changes in Word and prefer a .doc or .docx file. (If you send something else, I can convert it to .doc or .docx, no problem.) I also send a pdf version of the file back to you so you don't need Word to view the edits. However, I cannot edit a pdf file.

Please note: I only have a couple of openings left for 2022, but I am also happy to schedule time for the coming year.
Sample edit turnaround time is 1–2 weeks, depending on my schedule.
