My editing prices include one initial read-through with development notes, one thorough developmental editing pass, and one copy editing 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.
Editing rates are on a sliding scale based on overall word count. I aim to make quality editing affordable for everyone, including authors who are just starting out and do not have a large budget for their books. I know a lot of us are strapped for cash, especially in these crazy times, so I'm more than happy to work with you on a payment plan that won't break the bank.
To make sure we're a good match, I 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: I am from the U.S. and edit based on U.S. English unless you specify U.K. English when you book your slot. All prices are in U.S. dollars.
20k to 50k: $200
50k to 80k: $250
80k to 110k: $300
110k to 150k: $350
Each additional 10k: $30
Bonus Prologue/Epilogue/Scenes up to 10k: $30
Formatting may be added for a reduced rate. See formatting page for details.
