Fairest Reviews Editing Services

I am a high school English teacher with almost 20 years of experience and a Masters in English. Not only are words my passion, they’re also my job! My nerdy side allows me to enjoy and to be invested in all components of the writing process. As an English teacher, I guide my students in all facets of writing, and as an editor and proofreader, I’m able to utilize those same skills to assist authors in the crafting of their stories, which is just as rewarding as teaching is.

Fairest Reviews Editing Services endeavors to meet the needs of both new and experienced writers.

Please email me at bbarneybooks@outlook.com to discuss working together, to ask questions, or to schedule a manuscript for editing.

Editing Services

Content Editing .008 per word

An intensive, developmental edit focused on story line continuity and creating resonant characters arcs.

Manuscripts are examined for the following:

  • character growth/development
  • plot inconsistencies/issues
  • flow of story line/pacing
  • repetitive details
  • sufficient character backstory included

Microsoft Word with Track Changes.

Approximate turnaround time: 10-14 days.

Note: A chapter by chapter assessment or a one-page of analysis/final thoughts of the manuscript is available upon request by author.


Line/Copy Editing: Price per word varies based on quantity of edits ~ .005 to .006 per word 

This occurs before the manuscript is formatted and a final proofread is completed. (All Beta reader changes should be made prior to a line/copy edit.)

Manuscripts are examined for the following:

  • transitions
  • wordiness
  • word choice concerns
  • awkward phrases
  • continuity issues
  • timeline concerns
  • ensuring overall style meets genre expectations

Line/Copy Editing/Proofreading Combination: .0075 per word

This combination includes a line/copy edit once to a complete manuscript (i.e. one that has undergone a content edit and/or thorough beta read). Upon completion, the manuscript will be sent back to the author for his/her edits. Once edits are completed, a final proofread will follow.

Approximate turnaround time: 7-10 days.

*Minimum $50.00 Flat Rate for any Editing Service

Content/Line/Copy Editing Combination: .01 per word

My most intensive edit service includes content editing, either while the draft is being written or once a completed draft is ready. Once content edits and the first round of copy edits are completed, the manuscript is returned to the author for revisions. I will be available for further consultation during this process. When revisions are complete, the author will highlight NEW content and then send back to me for a second round of copy edits on the new material.

I’m a meticulous grammarian. Service includes:

  • capitalization
  • spelling
  • Noting of awkward or redundant word choice and sentences
