My general fee is $0.007 per word for copy editing services. For example, a 50,000 word manuscript would result in a copy editing fee of $350. For this service level, I will do a one time copy edit of your completed manuscript, with a minimum of two passes. This includes fact-checking, continuity, grammatical and spelling errors, echoes and repetitiveness.
For a second copy edit on the same manuscript, assuming there are not substantial changes (such as a complete rewrite), the fee is 0.004 cents per word, or $200 for a 50,000 word manuscript.
New clients require a 50% down payment for services the first time we work together, balance due upon completion.***
Flat rate of $0.005/word. If the manuscript requires more than proofreading services, the author will be notified that a copy edit is more appropriate, and will be informed of the fees associated with that additional service. Permission will be required in writing before continuing.
$50 up to 200 pages (in Word), $10 for each additional 100 pages. At this time I only format novels. Picture books and more complex designs coming soon.
**Payments are accepted through PayPal only.
*** Absolutely no refund after services are completed.
