How Do You Determine Your Rates?
In addition to word count, I calculate my quotes based on genre and complexity. True crime and historical fiction, for example, are typically charged at a higher rate due to the high level of fact-checking involved. Additional elements such as captions and citations are charged an additional per-hour rate.
My rates are in accordance with the Editorial Freelancers Association. To receive an accurate quote, please use my contact form to submit the details of your project and I will get back to you shortly.
Have you finished the meat and potatoes of your manuscript, but you're not quite sure it's written the best way it can be? Line editing will offer suggestions for deepening character development, honing your language, and tightening up your content. It's also my favorite type of editing!
