The Book Doctor Is In!
If you have pounded out your tome on your own, but you know that your writing skills are not up to snuff, you may consider hiring a professional to do a full rewrite of your book. Much like ghost writing, full rewrites of complete manuscripts are very costly, due to the length of time and amount of work required to do a full rewrite. Acceptance of a full rewrite request is on a case-by-case basis. A full book doctoring rewrite can average between $6,000 to $8,000 per 200 pages, depending on the level of doctoring required. If you want a taste of what a rewrite will look like, you can select a sample option and have the first 1,000 words of your manuscript rewritten for $175. (This does not include critiquing or tutoring you as to why I am making the changes I am making. If you want more of a tutoring session in writing, please choose the Premier Critique Service or Complete Manuscript Critique.) If you think you may want a full rewrite, please contact me and explain in detail about your novel and yourself. But do bear in mind that full rewrites are very costly. After evaluating a portion of your manuscript, I will send you the price per page. (Again, this does not include copy-editing. For that, you will have to hire a grammar king/queen.)
What is the difference between a complete manuscript rewrite and a complete manuscript critique?
A complete manuscript rewrite means that I am taking your existing work and rewriting it to strengthen your weak areas.
A complete manuscript critique means that I am highlighting your weak areas and making suggestions for change. You do the rewrite.
