Pricing Schedule (prices vary depending on size and type of book)

  1. Copyediting: Because every job is different, I do not have a set fee for editing your manuscript. The editing price depends on the genre, the quality of the writing, and the length of your manuscript. Please send me a 1,000 word sample from your document, the total number of words, and any special requirements for your project. I will send you a free estimate along with constructive comments about the writing.

    Please see The Editing Process for more details.

  2. Typesetting and layout for print book (camera-ready)
