RATES & How I Estimate Cost
I am a proud member of the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA), and rely on their base rates as guidelines for the service I provide. Because every manuscript is different, as is every author, project fees vary widely. A number of factors are carefully considered in estimating the cost of a project:
the specific needs of the author,
the type and length of manuscript,
the stage of development of the manuscript.
Other important factors help determine the cost of a project are:
subject matter, quality of writing, and complexity.
A careful consultation that considers the above factors is as important to the author as it is to me. It is vital first-step toward a collaborative relationship based on trust, confidence, and good rapport.
If you’d like to see a sample of my editing, I can send you five pages of a redacted revision plan I prepared for a previous client. Note that a complete revision plan can extend to twenty pages or more.
