Services & Pricing

Welcome to The Novel Triage! 

Services We Offer


For those who only need an extra set of eyes.


We'll check for spelling, grammar, punctuation, and subject-verb agreement that may have been missed in previous editing passes.

Line Editing

Along with checking for the basics (spelling, grammar, and punctuation), we'll also check for proper use of verb tenses, transitional phrases, consistency, and ensuring your book flow is easy to follow.

Developmental Editing

Developmental edit includes line editing services while focusing on plot and characters. This service also includes sentence rewrites (if necessary) to improve consistency, plot developmental, characterization, and ensuring the proper use of your conflict and tension.

Retainer Services

If you're a rapid releaser, you can hire us on retainer! Our retainers are custom to the author's need and frequency, so you'll only pay for what you want and need! Once you have us on retainer, you'll have access to priority booking and availability of our editors during the term of your retainer. Contact us to learn more about our retainer services and how they can help you.
