I'm toying around with this idea of offering therapeutic editing services through my blog and wanted to see what, if anything, people thought about it.
I've offered edits of this sort to contest winners as a prize, and I've gotten really good feedback from those winning authors. I use track changes and make thoughtful comments about character consistency, plot feasibility, and personality traits as well as did the usual line editing stuff (I was a journalism and psychology double major in undergrad).
This service would be for synopses, first 3 chapters, full length manuscripts...you name it, it would be game.
So I'm asking if this is something authors would be interested, and if so, would charging a fee be reasonable? How much? Ludicrous? Genius?
I'm trying to get some perspectives on whether to offer this service or not, so if you could weigh in below in the comment section, I'd really appreciate it. You can just vote yay or nay or if you have some idea to add, feel free! I'm not married to this idea, so no feelings will be hurt. :)
Thanks, and happy Monday!
