Editing: $40 – $60

At this time I offer two services.

  • Copyediting is $40/hr. This includes checking spelling, punctuation, and grammar, as well as style consistency and word repetition. I use the Chicago Manual of Style as a reference and Track Changes in Microsoft Word. The average number of pages per hour can vary from 10-25.
  • Substantive/structural editing is $60/hr. This includes looking at plot, characterization, structure, and pacing. You will receive an edit letter (this varies from 2-5 pages) from me with my thoughts on the manuscript’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as my suggestions, and the document with notes using Track Changes comments.

I do not offer proofreading services. Turn around time is 4-8 weeks on average but could take up to 12 in some cases. Editing space is extremely limited so please book in advance. Further details are available here.
