Our charge for editing is $80/hour for all manuscript review and telephone consultation.

The time required to edit a manuscript is hard—perhaps impossible—to predict. An editor may move fairly quickly through one excerpt submission of a book manuscript a writer has sent and then have to plod through another submission from the same memoir manuscript.

Why is this so?

  • Sometimes a writer has sent in a story he has told many times and therefore the writing is already honed.
  • On the negative side, perhaps a writer has sent in a piece of writing too early in the process and the editor is working with copy that really needed reworking before submission.
  • Or, the reason can be something else entirely.

That’s why we cannot promise you we can read a fixed number of pages per hour but we can promise you that we will will work appropriately to deliver you the quality editing your have a right to receive from us.
