Services

As a disabled author, I welcome other authors who want to write authentic disabled characters. I'm available for sensitivity reading and consulting in the following areas:

  • Spinal muscular atrophy/muscular dystrophy

  • Power wheelchair and wheelchair use

Sensitivity Read

With a sensitivity read, I will go through your manuscript and give feedback on the sensitivity area I'm reading for. I'll provide in-text comments and suggestions as well as an edit letter. This service also includes a second review should you wish to implement any edits I suggested. 

For a slightly higher fee I will look for plot holes, pacing issues, and minor grammatical errors in the entire manuscript. This is not an in-depth copy edit, but I will point out any issues I see. A second review is not included, but can be added for an additional fee.

Rates:                                               

Sensitivity Read                                  $30 per 10,000 words

Sensitivity Read + Manuscript Edit        $35 per 10,000 words

Sensitivity Consult

I'm also available for sensitivity consults if you just have some general questions or need help brainstorming a concept. Please contact me for pricing.

A few important notes...

  • Though I have been an advocate for disability rights nearly my entire life and have knowledge in general disability and accessibility issues beyond my own, experiences differ for everyone and I can only speak for my own personal experiences.

  • I prefer working on romcoms, contemporary romance, women's fiction, and contemporary YA, but I'm open to working on any genre with the exception of horror. I won't work on any stories that include sexual assault or violence, animal abuse, and anything gory beyond the horror genre.

  • Turnaround time is based on my availability and the length of your project, but averages about 2 weeks for a sensitivity read without an edit. If you're on a tight deadline, please contact me as soon as possible so we can try to work something out. 

 

  • Payments can be made via Paypal or Venmo. 

  • For any questions or to schedule your service, please send me a message by clicking here or via "Contact" in the menu above and put Sensitivity Read or Sensitivity Consult in the subject.
