Turnaround Time* for Content Editing and Proofreading:

Less than 5,000 words10 business days
Less than 10,000 words15 business days
Over 10,000 wordsturnaround time to be negotiated

*add 5 business days for Copy Editing

Please note: Some projects need a combination of all three types of editing. If that is the case, the rates and turnaround time will be negotiated separately from my usual fee schedule.

I require 25% of the total cost or the minimum fee (whichever is greater) as an upfront payment, with any remaining balance due 30 days after completion of work. There will be a 2% monthly charge after 30 days. I also require a signed agreement before beginning any work. I can provide sample work for a small charge upon request.


Alpha and Beta Reading

I love to read in-progress manuscripts! This step should be done prior to sending your manuscript to a professional editor. 

What you get: You will receive a 1-2 page report with detailed feedback including pacing, world-building, characters, and overall impressions. 

ARC Reading

Having reviews soon after publication can make your book soar to the top of the lists.

What you get: An honest review of your book posted to Goodreads and Amazon, as well as a review that you can use on your website or social media.

WHAT IS the difference between the various types of Readers?
