Book Editing and Proofreading Services

Some of my clients | Ghostwriting

If you only want help polishing a document I can fix spelling, punctuation, grammar, and awkward sentence structure.

Spelling Bee
I've always been a good speller.


HOW I CHARGE FOR SERVICES

I can charge by the project, by the hour, by the page, by the word or by the error found and fixed... whichever you prefer.

Estimates are provided after seeing the document or manuscript, understanding the full scope of the project and determining the complexity of the work.

A $500 deposit is required for new clients. You may use PayPal but I prefer to receive a check payable to Andrea Reynolds, My address is in the Sidebar.

Services are listed in order of simplest to most complex:

  • Final proofreading before printing
  • Fact checking (figures, names, titles) Usually included with proofreading.
  • Copy editing (spelling, grammar, punctuation, clarity)
  • Content editing (organization, style)
  • Rewriting of how-to manuscripts


WHAT TO EXPECT

I make corrections directly on your Word document manuscript pages using "Track Changes" in Microsoft Word 2011 for Mac. When you receive the edited or proofread copy you can see easily the deletions, insertions, corrections and comments I made, and accept or reject whatever you choose.


MY SERVICES AND RATES: July 2015


Our professional colleagues charge $50-$75 per hour, but I don't. I devote no less than 20 hours, often far more hours, to your manuscript; therefore my rates, by comparison, are usually much less. And the quality of my work is on par with other editors.


PROOFREADING ONLY Catching misspelling and typos before the final printing: $5 per page (250 words per page); $20 per 1000 words. Example: A 60,000 word book would be $20 x 60 = $1200.


FACT-CHECKING ONLY Checking accuracy of facts such as names, chronology, ages, statistics, etc.: $5 per page (250 words per page); $20 per 1000 words. Example: A 60,000 word book would be $20 x 60 = $1200.


COPY EDITING for spelling, grammar, punctuation, clarity: $7.50 per page (250 words per page); $30 per 1000 words. Example: A 60,000 word book would be $30 x 60 = $1800.
