Pricing for Nonfiction Writers

 Developmental Editing:  $0.09 (USD) per word up to 50,000 words;  $0.06 (USD) per word if over 50,000 words

Line Edit:  $0.08 (USD) per word up to 50,000 words; $0.05  (USD) if over 50,000 words

Proofreading: $.07 (USD) per word up to 50,000 words; $0.05  (USD) if over 50,000 words

When you email me for a quote, you will receive a contract where all terms are stipulated fully. This ensures that we can work together in as equitable a manner as possible, with clear expectations on both sides and no misunderstandings or surprises. 

If you would like developmental AND line editing, you will receive half price for line editing. I generally recommend that you get developmental editing first so that you can decide if I am suitable for your needs before you proceed any further. 

I expect a 50% down payment on work of at least 2500 words and the final 50% within 3 business days prior to your stipulated deadline.  I will be happy to look at your revision FOR NO EXTRA CHARGE.

 

Note that developmental and line editing work does NOT include proofreading, fact-checking, footnotes, endnotes, or bibliography: although these can be added under separate contracts and payments. 

My optimum pace is 50,000 words a week. Rush jobs will cost more: please contact me if you need a turnaround time that is less than a week for manuscripts over 50,000 words.  

For now, I accept payments through Paypal.

Writing Consultancy Rates

 Hourly rate : $100

Obviously, longer texts--or texts that are more problematic--require more time. Most assessments and detailed editing of college application essays or other shorter texts (e.g., short essays, blogs, promo materials, etc.) are estimated to take roughly 2 to 3 hours in any one week. This assessment can be followed by a phone or Zoom chat. 

Payment is expected within a day after the receipt of edited texts.
