Rates and Services

         Every author’s needs are different, as are the needs of every manuscript. Therefore the prices listed below are all baseline rates. The cost of editing a manuscript will be settled after an initial consultation and sample edit, and will reflect the particular expectations of the author and the state of the text itself.*

         Please note I am happy to edit either using Tracked Changes in Microsoft Word or on hard copies of manuscripts (though the latter may entail additional copying fees).



Initial consultation and Sample Edit — No charge

Light copyedit — $35.00/hour

Medium copyedit — $40.00/hour

Heavy copyedit — $45.00

Developmental edit — $50.00/hour

 Coaching — $45/hour as a separate service; $40/hour with editing
