EDITORIAL SERVICES FOR SUBMISSIONS
QUERY LETTER EDITING: $100
Want to stand out in the slush pile of submissions? I will read your query letter and give you thorough notes and edits on voice, tone, content, presentation, and more. Don't rush into querying before you're ready--make sure your letter is the best it can be!
QUERY LETTER AND SYNOPSIS EDITING / $200
This service is the same as the one described above, but with additional notes on a synopsis of up to four double-spaced pages.
SUBMISSION PACKAGE EDITING / $300
Looking to make the best possible first impression with an agent or editor? With this service, I will provide you with content notes and line edits on your query, synopsis, and opening ten double-spaced pages, the sample length of prose many literary agencies and publishing houses request.
When I was working in editorial acquisitions, if I wasn't hooked by the query letter and the initial pages, I was told to just skim or skip the rest entirely. Agents and publishers don't have the time or energy to read countless pages in the hopes that a manuscript magically "gets better later." Ensure your submission will shine, and avoid sabotaging all your hard work with an ineffective sample, by investing in professional editing.
If you are interested in a longer page count for the submission package, or if you'd like feedback on a combination of query, synopsis, and opening pages that you don't see here, please let me know! I'd be happy to customize a service with you.
"I hired Nicole to draft the synopses for my fantasy trilogy. She worked through the books very quickly, paying particular attention to my requests, with excellent communication throughout the project. I loved working with her and will definitely be reaching out to Nicole again when I complete my next book!"
