Fees

For shorter projects:

For shorter works, such as blog posts and marketing products (brochures, ads, and the like), contact me for a fee estimate.

For longer projects:

For longer works, such as book manuscripts, I charge by the 250-word page.

My regular fee, per editing pass, ranges from $9.00 to $12.50 per 250 words, depending on the complexity of the edit.

I charge a higher rate when, to meet your deadline, I must postpone other projects, work nights, or work weekends. That rate, per editing pass, ranges from $11 to $15.50 per 250 words, depending on the complexity of the edit.

Plus: Editing cost can be higher if you want me to edit many citations, endnotes, footnotes, names of publications, an index, or a glossary.

Ready to get going?

For longer works, a $200 hold-date payment holds the date we settle on for me to start editing your work. The remainder of half the average of the estimate range will be due before editing starts. Those payments are applied to the final fee. All this is detailed in a work-for-hire agreement.

You can pay me via Chase QuickPay even if you don’t have a Chase bank account. Your bank may have an equivalent service.

PayPal is fine, too. You don’t need a PayPal account to pay via PayPal. PayPal accepts credit cards or transfers from your bank account.

I also accept checks.
