My editing packages – designed for you
I want to help you make your book the best it can be – whether you are an independent author, or if you are planning to submit your manuscript to agents and/or publishers.
To help you achieve this, I have a tiered pricing structure offering different levels of service – basic, standard and comprehensive. This means that you only pay for what you need.
The basic package includes a content/copy/line edit* and proofread and a fully detailed report expanding on comments made on the manuscript itself and offering suggestions and advice.
Individually tailored standard and comprehensive packages can include:
- additional edits based on your needs
- initial beta read
- advice and help with synopsis and query letter writing
- advice and help with book blurb and author page
- help with choosing a book cover
- help with promoting your book
Editing packages start at just £4.50/$7.00 per thousand words.**
Additional services include:
- beta reading priced at £0.75/$1.00 per thousand words
- proofreading at £2.50/$3.50 per thousand words
- evaluation of published work for writers whose books aren’t selling. Prices start at £0.75/$1.00 per thousand words
I also provide editing for short stories, poetry and blog posts/website content – please contact me for a quote.
I can offer advice on self-publishing and promotion on an ad hoc basis at a cost of £15.00/$22.00 per hour.
