Turnaround Time* for Content Editing and Proofreading:

If your document is:I return it within:
Less than 1,000 words1 business day
Less than 5,000 words3 business days
Less than 10,000 words5 business days
10,000-50,000 words10 business days
Over 50,000 wordsTurnaround time to be negotiated

*add 5 business days for Line 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 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.
