Services and Rates
My services range from proofreading, to copyediting (light, medium, or heavy), to line editing, to manuscript evaluation, and now include formatting and book (interior) design. The rates for editing and proofreading as shown below are based on guidelines provided by the Editorial Freelancers Association, and standards may vary. I prefer to work on a per-project basis. (If you’re not sure what type of editing you need, click here.) I will take a look at your manuscript, and I’ll show you what I can do by providing a sample edit of up to 1,000 words.
If you want a better idea of how much to budget, contact me to discuss your project.
