Every manuscript is unique and requires a personal approach to editing. Developmental editing, line editing (also called copy editing), and proofreading address different issues. Each project is quoted individually, although I do offer packages for all three. Rates vary depending on the scope of the project, the condition of the manuscript, the word count, and the quality of the writing. I follow industry standards for pricing based on a per word fee.
After assessing a sample of your project (usually 10 to 20 pages) I will present a flat-rate fee. If agreeable, a deposit of 50 percent of the total fee is required for me to begin. Once the contract is signed and the deposit is paid, I will begin work. The balance will be due upon completion of the project.
I offer packages for clients who need a comprehensive edit from manuscript development to final proofread. Please ask about interior formatting and full book cover design, as well as website design.
I am usually able to turn each project around within two weeks, depending on when the project arrives and the word count.
Rush projects will be charged additional fees.
