Carmen's editing prices include one initial read-through and suggestions, one thorough content editing pass, and one copy editing and proofreading pass (three passes total). From start to finish, the process takes two to three weeks from the booked date, sometimes sooner, depending on the length of the book.
Unlike many editors, Carmen does not charge per word or per page. Instead, her prices are on a sliding scale based on overall word count. She aims to make quality editing affordable for everyone, including authors who are just starting out and do not have a large budget for their books.
Carmen will do a free sample edit up to 4k words, from any part of the book you wish. Please allow 2-3 days turnaround for sample edit.
Note: Carmen is from the U.S. and edits based on U.S. English unless you specify U.K. English when you book with her.
