PROFESSIONAL EDITING SERVICES

RATES

All prices are in £ GBP

 

Analysis and critique

 

£5.00-£10.00 per thousand words, depending on level of critique needed and desired.

 

Submit your first chapter, or 10 pages (approx), in Microsoft Word by e-mail. I’ll critique your opening pages and provide a proposal with an exact price quote, no charge and no obligation, so you can see what type of critique you can expect.

 

If you accept the proposal, send the entire manuscript by e-mail (MS Word). I’ll invoice you for half of the amount in advance, with payment accepted via PayPal. The remaining payment is due when you receive the completed report.

 

Estimated turnaround time will usually be 30-60 days or less, depending on length of the manuscript and complexity of the critique.

 

You will receive a written report, typically 10-20 pages, outlining specific strengths of your work, areas that need strengthening, and ideas and resources on how to make revisions and improvements in your manuscript.

 

Thirty days of follow-up is included: e-mail discussion of specific questions.

 

A second full critique of the same manuscript after a complete revision will be at half the original rate.

 

If you also want proofreading, line editing or submission review service, discount packages are available.

 

Proofread/copy edit

 

£3.00 to £5.00 per thousand words, depending on the amount of editing required.

 

Send your first 10 pages in Microsoft Word by e-mail. I’ll send you a proofread version of those pages and a price quote for proofing the entire manuscript, no charge and no obligation, so you can see what you can expect.

 

If you accept the proposal, send the entire manuscript by e-mail (MS Word). I’ll invoice you for half of the amount in advance, with payment accepted via PayPal. The remaining payment is due when you receive the fully edited manuscript.

 

Estimated turnaround: 30-60 days.

 

You will receive a marked-up copy showing all changes.

 

Full Line edit

 

£8.00 to £12.00 per thousand words, depending on the amount of editing required.

 

Send your first 10-20 pages in Microsoft Word by e-mail. I’ll provide a line edit of those pages and a price quote for editing the entire manuscript, no charge and no obligation, to show you what type of edit you can expect.

 

If you accept the proposal, send the entire manuscript by e-mail (MS Word). I’ll invoice you for half of the amount in advance, with payment accepted by check drawn on a U.S. bank, money order or PayPal. The remaining payment is due when you receive the fully edited manuscript.
