Blurb Edit and Critique ($25.00 flat rate)

Black Widow Publishing will give your current book blurb a fresh look, correct any errors and give it the added edge to help your book find its reader!
Copy Editing ($0.0035 per word)
Black Widow Publishing is not currently offering the detailed copy editing service to new clients.
In the event that you have retained Black Widow for one of the above services, please contact your editor directly for his or her availability to do a detailed line-by-line edit of your manuscript.
The copy edit of your final draft will include a line-by-line edit for sentence structure, grammar, spelling and comments on plot consistency, character analysis and style, as necessary.
This service includes two complete reviews before it is sent back to the author. It does not include a second edit after the author approves the changes. The author will receive two manuscripts back from his or her editor; one of which will show the mark-up, indicating all of the recommended changes and comments on other issues, if any. The other will be a final manuscript with all of the recommended changes made.
There is a minimum charge of $70.00 USD for manuscripts under 20,000 words.
Re-edits ($0.0020 per word)
Has your book been published, however you are unsatisfied with the quality of your previous editor’s service? Do you require a second review of your manuscript after receiving one of the above-noted editorial services? Black Widow Publishing can help.
This service is for previously edited manuscripts only. Our editors reserve the right to deny this service to an author with unpolished or poorly edited works and will refer such author to the recommended service package, as necessary. There is a minimum charge of $40.00 USD for manuscripts under 20,000 words.
