Pricing

Our editing services are priced competitively and per project need, and á la carte options are available for all our editing, production, and publishing services. This means you can tailor them to your budget or publishing goals. (Free sample pages of combined content and prose editing are available upon request.)

EDITORIAL 

Editorial minimum pricing (applies to most projects)

  • $129 minimum for any works under 10,000 words
  • $195 minimum for works over 10,000 words

 

 Evaluations (big-picture feedback)

  • $150 – $439 based on the word count

 

Developmental Editing (paragraph-level content feedback/development) and In-Depth Line Editing (prose execution)

  • Fiction or nonfiction: Generally anywhere from $300 to 2,000+ depending on unique manuscript needs (length, genre, editorial work involved; footnotes, graphics, unique style guide requirements, etc., may require additional charges)—very short works may be less
  •  This type of work is bid per project and requires the editor to review the entire work since editing needs can range from lighter to  requiring substantial reorganization, some ghosting, coaching, etc.

 

 Copyediting and Proofreading

  • Fiction $.0080 to .019 per word depending on chosen service and unique manuscript needs
  • Nonfiction $.0094 to .020 per word depending on chosen service and unique manuscript needs (some works may fall outside this range if substantial paragraph/sentence-level reorganization or ghosting, etc., is required; footnotes, graphics, unique style guide requirements, etc., require additional charges)
  • The per-word price is applied after the minimum pricing based on how much work and time the editor feels will be required to complete the edit.
