Children's Book Editing

Laura specializes in editing children's books, from board books to middle grade novels.

She provides multiple rounds of edits with suggestions for:

  • Developmental editing on plot, character, organization, and theme

  • Line editing for voice, flow, and reading level

  • Proofreading for grammar and spelling errors

  • Rhyme and meter suggestions for rhyming stories


  • A fixed rate of $65 for children's books of up to 1,000 words

  • Fixed or hourly rates for longer manuscripts

*There are many barriers on the path to publication, and Laura does not believe that finances should be one of them. Each year, Spectacled Bear offers a set number of scholarships for no- or low-cost editing services. If pricing is a barrier to you, please let Laura know through the Contact page.
