How much does a book cost for editing? 5$ a page? 25$ per hour? With a guaranteed turnaround, I work on a flat rate pricing model that's easy to understand. Most novels range between 70,000 - 100,000 words. A little above for Science Fiction/ Fantasy, and a bit below for Young Adult. The going rate for the society of professional editors is hefty. As a writer who became an agent, budget is a huge concern not to be taken lightly. These are the different services and prices I offer.

A query is a simple thing, and yet still tricky for many. Whether you have a query or need one created, you and I will create the ideal one-page slip to maximize your novel's showmanship.
Turnaround Time: 5 days
1.5¢ Per Word
This isn't just line editing or proofreading. One full developmental draft. This is examining what's working in your book, and what is holding the narrative back. This is the path to revision, and for getting a real approximation of how ready your book is for querying and publishing.
Turnaround Time: 22 Days
$125 PER MONTH
For those that need fuel to finish the first draft. Every month we will speak twice on the phone, and you'll be assigned deadlines that total from 6,000 - 8,000 words per month. As we critique the ongoing work, I will also assign writing prompts, craft essays, and recommended reading that is tailored to your emerging style.
