EDITING

My goal as an editor is to help enhance the beauty of your voice/style while working through anything that bogs the story down. I want you to feel uplifted as a writer and encouraged to make changes to tell your story the best way possible.

I do both content and line editing in one pass. Price is $12 per 1,000 words. Turnaround time is 3-6 weeks, depending on the length of the book.

To request a quote, please send the title, word count, genre, and first 5 pages to cyelkoth@gmail.com. You will get a free edit of those pages and then if both parties decide to work together, an invoice is sent. Payment is half up front, half when the project is complete. I accept PayPal or credit.

TESTIMONIALS

Christa Yelich-Koth edited my last three books, and now I can’t imagine publishing one without her extensive input. She’s thorough, meticulous, and gives both a substantive edit (addressing larger questions of story, character development and theme) and a fantastic line/copyedit. Seriously, Christa has broken me of bad writing habits I didn’t even know I had! She has a remarkable memory for detail, catching embarrassing discrepancies that had eluded numerous other readers. As a writer herself (and passionate reader), she’s deeply familiar with the genre conventions expected in fantasy, sci-fi, mystery and others, which I think is critical when polishing a manuscript.

I’ve paid professional editors large sums of money and gotten a fraction of the feedback Christa delivers. Don’t expect coddling: if there’s a problem, she’ll tell you immediately (and that’s why we need readers besides mom and significant other, right?). So if you’re not afraid to wade into the trenches and get dirty making your draft about ten times better, Christa is exactly who you want on your side, redlining “that” and “was” and reminding you that when someone is being smothered with a pillow, the killer can’t really look into his eyes as he dies….“–Kat Ross, bestselling author of the Fourth Element series

“Not only is Christa Yelich-Koth an amazing author who knows how to knit together an incredible story, create enchanting worlds, and lovable characters, but she has a unique ability to see layers deeper into other writers’ work.

Her edits are far more than simple grammar, spelling and sentence structure. Christa’s talents lie in restructuring the bones of a novel. From character motivation and backstories to plot holes and lackluster writing, Christa will definitely bring your book up a few levels. 

My best-selling YA series, Children of the Gods, wouldn’t be the same without her!”-Jessica Therrien, B&N bestselling author

“Christa is a meticulous content editor. Not only does she catch the more obvious plot holes, Christa searches out the small things that with a slight twist can turn up the volume on your manuscript and make it shine. I would loathe to publish any of my novels before Christa worked her magic on my sentences.”Holly Kammier, Amazon Bestselling author of Kingston Court
