It’s been a busy year for editing. I realize that I have copyedited or proofread at least 35 books, as well as stepping up my work for a bi-monthly local magazine, which continues. It hasn’t been a great year for my own writing, but that’s OK. Last year was. We can all use a break.
On the subject of breaks, I won’t be taking any more manuscripts till January. I hope to use the time off to clean and organize my home office, listen to scads of old voicemails, and think about the year ahead! 2020 is the Year of the Rat in Chinese astrology, not traditionally an auspicious one for me. But who knows, right?
Rates continue to be .003 per word for proofreading ($30 per 10,000 words); .006 per word for copyediting ($60 per 10,000 words)—and my NEW developmental-editing/copyediting combo is only .008 per word.
Edit for Indies appreciates our loyal clients and is always open to queries from new ones. I’ll end by wishing everyone a happy holiday season.
