Competitive Rates

All rates will be determined by your individual project.

Contact me for a prompt estimate of your project's cost. If you need a manuscript edited, please include the word count (not the number of pages) and a sample chapter or two so I'll have a better understanding of the level of editing needed and can accurately estimate my time.  All work is kept in strict confidence. Please be aware that I'm often booked weeks or months in advance for longer projects such as manuscripts.

  • My base rate for writing, copy editing, and proofreading projects is $50 an hour. Before I start work, I can provide a "not to exceed" quote based upon my estimated time to complete your project.
  • Rush jobs may be billed at a higher hourly rate to be mutually agreed upon prior to the start of work.
  • I'm always willing to work with clients to make projects as affordable as possible.
  • Payment is accepted by personal check or PayPal. For new clients, a retainer is typically required prior to the start of work.
