Rewriting

So, you’ve written a children’s book. But, you know it’s in no condition to submit to publishers or agents, or even self-publish. What do you do?

Simple: You hire a ghostwriting rewriter.

A rewriter will take what you’ve written and put it through a ‘wash and dry’ cycle. In other words, she will spin it into a readable, engaging, and publishable book.

One of my clients, Tanesha Hopson, put it best:

Oh, you are so good at what you do. You used my words, turned them all around and the transition from conversation to action is so smooth. I am so amazed! My meaning is still being conveyed only stronger than I ever could of imagined or could have done. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I am so pleased!”

That’s what rewriting is all about. It keeps your idea, the essence of your story (manuscript), but makes it better. It becomes something you couldn’t have imagined!

I’m a professional children’s writer and know the dos and don’ts of writing for children – I know the tricks of the trade. And, I’m a working editor. I know how to turn a mess into a publishable book that you’ll be proud to author.

Let me take your story for a ‘spin.’

Please note: Rewriting is different than ghostwriting:
Rewriting is done from the author’s manuscript.
Ghostwriting is taking an idea and/or outline/draft/notes and turning them into a publishable story.

As with ghostwriting, there are lots of factors taken into account in order to quote a price. It depends on the genre, the condition of the manuscript, the word count, and if any research is needed.

To give you an idea though, picture book manuscripts start at $495 for under 1000 words.

Chapter book manuscripts are $795 for the first 5,000 words then about $.10 per word thereafter (up to 15,000 word).

Middle grade manuscripts start at $0.15 per word.

Again, the fee is based on the condition of your manuscript and the amount of review and/or research involved.

And, please be aware that the fee is higher for rhyming picture books.
