The following is a list of services that Pixie Styx Editing offers. If you require a different type of service, please contact me and we will work out details and pricing that way. Thank you!
Are you looking for someone to critique your book? Someone who will read through every page and offer you an honest opinion of your work? Pixie Styx Editing offers such a service. With a basic critique, you will send your book to me in one of the following formats: pdf, docx, mobi. Once I receive your book, I will read it through and send it back with an assessment of what I thought of plot, character development, world building, dialogue, etc. I will make no changes to your book. Just provide my sincere opinion of your story. Please see pricing for more information.
Proofread/Basic Grammar Check
With a proofread and basic grammar check, you will receive everything that comes with a critique, as well as having your grammar and spelling fixed where needed. You will send your book to me as either pdf, docx, or mobi, and I will go through and use Track Changes (in Word) to show you where you made a mistake (comma instead of period, misspelled word, etc) and how to fix it. Please see pricing for more information.
Proofread/Advanced Grammar Check
With the proofread and advanced grammar check, you will receive everything that comes with the critique and basic grammar check, with the addition of showing you where (via Track Changes) you need to fix sentence structure, wording (wrong word used), dialogue (if it sounds unrealistic or strange), and anything else that may crop up. Please see pricing for more information.
Are you looking for a second set of eyes to comb over your novel and make sure your first editor didn't miss anything? Or, after having made first edits from PSE, you'd like me to read over it again to make sure you (or I) didn't miss anything? If so, Pixie Styx Editing also offers second edits. A second edit includes reading through your entire novel and making sure nothing was overlooked or seems out of place. Anything that may need fixed will be noted via Track Changes. Please see pricing for more information.
A complete edit is just what it says it is. Pixie Styx Editing offers this service to authors who want the best of the best. You will receive a proofread/grammar and spelling check, as well as a full content edit. Plot holes, fact checking, suggestions for rewrites if needed, additions that should be made, deletions that will make the book flow better, rearranging sentences/paragraphs to sound more appropriate, and a second edit. Please be advised that this service will take more time than any other service. Please see pricing for more information.
Do you need assistance writing the perfect blurb for your book? Want something that will draw in readers without giving away too many details? Pixie Styx Editing is now offering blurb writing as a service. If you've already written a blurb and want it tweaked so it is shorter or less detailed, that can be done. If you don't have a blurb written, one can be done for you. You will need to supply basic details about your book for this service to be completed. Please see pricing for more information.
