Rates vary for manuscript assessments depending on the length of your manuscript, and the amount of time it will take me to read your book twice and provide a detailed Editorial Report. Please contact me with a wordcount and your genre.
Copyediting & proofreading
Rates for copy editing and proofreading services vary depending on
a number of elements:
length of manuscript / document
type of editing required
whether there has been any prior editorial input
work to be done on-screen using track changes in Word, or marking up PDFs
turnaround time – rates will increase for urgent jobs and those required over weekends and bank holidays
I can provide a confirmed, no obligation quote once I know your specific needs and have seen a sample of your manuscript or document.
Your sample will show me the level of intervention needed and approximately how long it will take to complete the job.
Short story critique
I provide detailed feedback on language, dialogue, structure and story, as well as the finer points of spelling, punctuation, grammar and word choice.
Feedback will be given using Track Changes in Word, comment bubbles and a list of action points.
Special Introductory Price: £30/$40 (normally £40/$50)
Length: 4,000 words maximum
If you have a longer short story, get in touch and we can agree on a price.
Rates are reviewed in March every year. As a Professional member of the SfEP,
I adhere to their minimum hourly rates.
