You’ve written a masterpiece that’s going to change the world, but it needs some polish. Thankfully, you don’t have to go at it alone.
I’ll help get your message across clearly and concisely.
Editing service fees are as follows:
Book, Magazine, Article, Web Copy Editing: Varies
Unlike writing and design, the fee for every editing job varies. Why? Because every author is different and every web page, article, and book needs something different.
Before I give an editing quote, I ask for a sample of the writing to be edited. I then edit a short part of the sample for the writer to review. If the writer likes what I’ve done, I give a quote—not an estimate—for the job. Only when the price is agreed upon do we move forward.
The benefits are mutual. If you come to me with a project that just needs a final read, your price will be much lower than if your book has grammar, spelling, and usage mistakes throughout and needs some developmental help. Also, reviewing a sample gives me a chance to determine if I will enjoy working on the project. If I don’t feel I’m a good fit, I tell you this before any money is exchanged, wish you the best, and will even point you to someone who may better suit you.
