    Copyedit and proofread only - negotiable, approx $450 for 300 page book. Negotiable based on needs/time.

    Text that comes to me already clean needs less work than unedited drafts.


    ***Submission information:

    When manuscripts are received, they are converted to 1" margins all around, numbered, Times New Roman font pt.12,and double-spaced--for computation of # of pages. If the word .doc or .docx is received in that format, all the better.

    The title page is not included in the count. Negotiations are often needed for various projects which do not fit the basic guidelines but the rule of thumb for prose would be approximately $3.00 per page ($900 divided by 300) for the full edit. $1.50 per page for copyedit/proofread only.

    It is most important to know if there is a deadline for the project (heavy deadlines can add cost). Email addys, phone numbers (with best time to call), are also needed.
