Your relationship with your editor can be very personal. My basic rates are listed below, but know I’m open to work with you if the quoted price simply won’t fit into your budget.
With more than 20 years of experience in writing and editing for daily newspapers, I’m well-versed in quick turnaround times. As a published romance novelist, I’m most familiar with the structure and conventions of that genre, but I’m willing to edit others.
My basic rate for proofreading is 0.007 cents per word. Proofreading includes spelling, grammar, punctuation and checking for formatting of text (italics, boldface, etc.). I have an eagle eye for typos!
A full copy edit goes deeper, involving not only the spelling, grammar, punctuation and correct word usage in proofreading but also fact checking when needed and a read-through for consistency. Does your hero have blue eyes on Page 22 but green eyes on Page 201? I’ll find it. My copy editing rate is 0.015 cents per word.
