Pricing and Payment

Ready to have me get to work?

For both authors and businesses:

Copy Editing: $0.01 / word

Proofreading: $0.008 / word

All price quotes are free and of no obligation.

For novel manuscripts and other lengthy works, I highly recommend sending a sample first (it’s free!), which I will edit and return, so you can decide if my services will be useful or not. This also helps me determine if you need copy editing, proofreading, or something more substantial.

Once the details are worked out, I will provide a time frame of work completion. The more complex the edits, the longer it will take, but I’m usually able to work within a schedule that suits you best.

For contracted works, 10% of the total cost will be required up front, unless it’s fewer than 15,000 words (approximately fifty Word pages).

If you’re concerned about pricing, I’m open to negotiating, just ask!

If you’re a business and would like to hire me for ongoing work at an hourly rate, I can use the time-tracking systems on Upwork, Hubstaff, erecruit, and Teamwork, or another preferred system.

I accept Paypal (email or invoice), Google Wallet, Chase QuickPay, check, or cash in a briefcase behind a 7/11 dumpster.
