***Prices may be adjusted depending upon the depth of editing needed.***

Pre-Editorial Review

Clients with larger projects are urged to submit manuscripts for a pre-editorial review so that the amount of work, appropriate pricing, and accurate turnaround time can be properly assessed. The fee for the pre-editorial review is waived if the client chooses to work with me, and then only the standard up-front fee of $45 to hold your place in my schedule is required (this is considered a part of the overall fee).

***Substantial Editing/Rewriting

Manuscripts which require substantial editing/rewriting (this is more than just basic proofreading, copy editing, or structural editing; involves complete reworking of material, crafting something better than what exists by drafting new copy when needed, and often taking information/notes provided by the author to create additional content), due to the massive amount of work required, are billed at a much higher rate.

Substantial editing/rewriting services start at $18 per double-spaced page (or industry standard average of 250 words) of the finalized document.

Rapid Turn-around Projects

A fee of $25–$50 will be assessed for rapid-turnaround projects that are more than 20 pages in length, require extensive work in either services needed or amount of changes/corrections to be reviewed and fixed, and are requested to be returned within a less than 48-hour window.

Consulting (Fiction Projects only)

          All consulting projects will be billed hourly at the rate of $30.00 per hour.
