Affordable Freelance Editing
I know editing can be a big investment for authors. That is why I want to make my freelance editing rates affordable, and create a plan that can work for any author! Do you want just a specific type of edit? I am always willing to work out a custom rate to fit specific needs of authors.
Check out the rates set by the Editorial Freelancers Association. These are standard industry rates. Then take a peek at my rates below. I think you'll like what you see.
Developmental Editing $950
This is heavy editing that helps correct and build the plot, further develop characters, help with fact-checking, setting development, and suggest other improvements to the manuscript. I will also help with formatting, copyediting, and proofreading.
Developmental editing will typically involve three edits: An initial intensive chapter-by-chapter edit, a second line edit to check all changes and perfect the manuscript flow, and a third proofreading edit to finalize the manuscript for publication.
Copyediting / Line Edit $575
This editing will help with sentence structure and grammar, check for inconsistencies in the formatting, and will include a full proofread. I will go line-by-line to check for the flow of each sentence, suggest changes to structure and word choice, as well as note any inconsistencies throughout the manuscript. I will also check how comprehensive and concise each sentence is, identify habit words and suggest alternatives, and look for other mechanic issues.
This edit is a thorough scan for any grammar or spelling errors in the manuscript.
