Copyediting: Under 12K words>>>>$99 (new minimum rate for all jobs)
12K-19K words>>>>>>$150 flat rate.
20K and up: .008 per word. That’s $40 per 5K words.

*Nonfiction books (self-help, health titles, etc.) cost .01 (one cent) per word.
Proofreading: Has your book already been copyedited (or is your MS super-clean?), and you just need proofreading by a second pair of eyes? That’s now only .006 per word. ($30 per 5K words)
Edit for Indies’ professional copyediting service includes correcting your manuscript’s grammar, punctuation, typos, and any necessary fact-checking. We will gladly send you a 1,000-word free sample edit on request.
HOT COMBO: Combine light content editing (i.e., I’ll offer suggestions and constructive feedback on issues like style, dialogue, narrative flow, and pacing via the comment feature in Microsoft Word) along with thorough copyediting for an affordable .008 per word. (Fiction only.) For heavier developmental editing, please find an editor who specializes in this.
We will also provide you with a well-crafted book description, if desired, for an additional $50!
Terms: I invoice my clients by PayPal before starting the edit. You pay no extra fees! (Split payment terms are available for larger jobs on request.)
72-Hour Rush Jobs: If you need your job done super-fast, I can usually squeeze you in for an additional 20 percent of my copyediting rate, depending on schedule.
Authors who are members of the Wide for the Win group on Facebook can also get 10% off!
