Note: I will not be accepting any new editing or proofreading jobs for the foreseeable future. I AM still accepting formatting jobs. Please see below for my current rates for any future projects you may have.
Proofreading services are $15 per 10k words.
If you wish to book me for only proofreading, please provide me with the name of your editor and a link to either their website or Facebook page. If you have not had your book professionally edited before it comes to me, you will be charged for a single pass copy edit at $20 per 10k words.
Rush jobs that are booked less than a week in advance OR manuscripts that are sent to me more than two days past your booked appointment date will be charged a rush fee of an additional $10 per 10k words.
Formatting may be added for a reduced rate. See formatting page for details.
Grammar and Punctuation Standards: I am from the U.S. and proofread based on U.S. English unless you specify U.K./Australian English when you book with me, and I adhere to the Chicago Manual of Style and the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.
U.S. vs. U.K./Australian English: If you are setting your book in the United States and have American characters, I will point out colloquialisms that are not natural for American English. If I find myself doing this more than six times in the course of a novel, I will be amending your invoice to a copy edit, as doing this means it takes me more time to get through the manuscript and it's no longer a simple proofread. I will communicate this with you prior to adjusting the invoice.
All prices listed are in U.S. dollars.
