Have you written a book? Need a non-biased person to take a look at it and make sure you haven’t made any grammatical mistakes? I can be that person for you! I have nearly four years of experience doing just this, and I’d love to help you out.
I have two different prices for each type of editing: a children’s book price and a novel price. A children’s book is defined as a short picture book, up to 5,000 words. For picture books over 5,000 words, please email me for an estimate. A novel is a chapter book over 5,000 words, regardless of the genre and targeted age range. Novels are priced per page, and this is defined as a completed book page, not a standard 8.5×11 page. One page equals approximately 250-300 words.
Proofreading: This covers the cosmetics of your book. You should have had it edited before getting to this point. For the proofreading price, I will correct any grammatical errors, tense misuse, and spelling mistakes.
Children’s book: $75
Novel: $3 per page
Copy Editing: Copy editing is like proofreading, but more. Copy editing covers all of the elements of proofreading and making sure all the elements of your story flow together. I’ll check for inconsistencies and point them out. I’ll recommend word changes as I see fit. Ultimately, all changes and suggestions are your decision to keep or cut.
Children’s book: $100
Novel: $4 per page
Content Editing: This is the whole kit ‘n kaboodle. Content editing covers all the elements of proofreading and copy editing, and I reserve the right to rewrite portions of your story for clarity and depth. I will add things that I feel were left out. Like copy editing, all changes and suggestions are your choice to keep or not.
Children’s book: $200
Novel: $7 per page
With all proofreading (regardless of the type of editing you choose), I will provide explanations for the reasons behind the changes.
