Before you invest in an editing package, I will send you a short questionnaire to learn a bit about your story, determine what you’re looking for, and complete a free sample edit of 1,000 words to make sure we’re a good fit for each other.
Developmental edits are priced at a flat rate of $30 per 1,000 words.
Copy edits are priced at a flat rate of $20 per 1,000 words.
Proofreading is priced at a flat rate of $10 per 1,000 words.
Developmental + copy edits package: $45 per 1,000 words.
If you’d like to do a second round of developmental edits after your revisions, I offer a reduced rate of $20 per 1,000 words. This offer must be claimed within six months of my initial feedback to you.
Pricing is based on turnaround times of 3-4 weeks for developmental editing and 2-3 weeks for copy edits or proofreading, based on an 80,000-word manuscript. Longer manuscripts may require more time. I may be able to accommodate a tighter deadline for a surcharge; please indicate your desired time frame on the intake form.
I’m more than happy to review partial manuscripts (e.g. your first 50 pages) for the above-listed prices. This is particularly useful for query packages or to get insight into your writing as you work on your draft. Identifying problems early on can make a big difference in how you move forward!
Fees must be paid in full before work can begin.
