My wife has decided that she would love to help some of my writer friends with their stories while she’s on summer break! That’s right, she’s a language arts teacher. Her red pen is ready and she wants her skills to be as sharp when she returns for the school year as your prose will be when she’s done.
She’s edited some of my works, and I can vouch for her skills. Her rates are as follows:
Proof reading – A quick but thorough look at your story for any glaring mistakes. $5/1,000 words (includes one pass through the text)
Copy editing – A closer read, looking for any grammatical or spelling issues. $8/1,000 words (includes a second pass after author’s sign off on the first)
Content editing – This will include reading for continuity, construction, plot elements, and theme. $12/1,000 words (includes a second pass after author’s sign off on the first)
The total package – This is a combination of copy and content editing. $15/1,000 words. (includes a second pass after author’s sign off on the first)
She will edit any genre except erotica. The minimum manuscript size she will edit is 2,000 words. Query for a quote on any manuscript over 60,000 words.
