Rates

EDITOR SERVICES

My rates are currently LESS THAN ONE CENT per word. This is not an error. I understand that indie authors are in a unique situation, just like me, and my focus is on building relationships and assisting authors with publishing their manuscripts.

Editing is $.0095 per word. For example, if your manuscript is 80,000 words, your total would be $760 (80,000 x .0095).

Proofreading is $.0075 per word. For example, if your manuscript is 80,000 words, your total would be $600 (80,000 x .0075).

Website content editing starts at $60+. Please contact me for more details.

Editing services might be subject to an additional rate-and-a-half rush fee if turnaround time is less than one week.

INTERIOR DESIGN SERVICES

Formatting rate (including special fonts and 1 symbol for use as a separator) for ePub, mobi, and PDF is $160. For manuscripts that I’ve edited, the rate is reduced to $145.

Simple formatting rate (does not include special fonts for headings or symbols) is $80. For current editing clients, the rate is reduced to $75.

Two updates (up to ten text changes each round) to the formatted manuscript are included. An additional $50 will be charged if errors exceed ten changes per update.

If changing the trim size of the paperback or requesting revision to the design after formatting has been completed, then an additional fee of at least half of the original formatting price will be charged, depending on the amount of rework needed.

Formatting services might be subject to an additional $50 rush fee if turnaround time is less than a week.

WRITING SERVICE

Synopsis writing rate is $95. This includes three rounds of revisions and FREE review of your cover before publishing.

DEPOSIT

A nonrefundable $75 deposit per service along with a signed contract are required to hold your manuscript in the schedule. At least half of the total amount is due when you turn over the manuscript to me, and the remainder of the payment is due before the edited manuscript will be returned to you.
