Memoir Editing Fee

Except for work with our founding editor, Denis Ledoux, your memoir editing fee is $80/hour for manuscript editing and telephone consultations. Editing and consultations with Denis Ledoux are billed at $95/hour.

The time required to edit a manuscript is hard—perhaps impossible—to predict. An editor may move quickly through one excerpt submission of a book manuscript 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 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 work appropriately to deliver you the quality editing you have a right to receive from us.

Are you ready to work with a memoir editor?

Ask for a complimentary session to assess your needs and the suitability of The Memoir Network to help you succeed. All complimentary sessions are with Denis Ledoux.

We offer an introductory package—try us with a three-hour commitment. That’s it: three hours! If we’re a fit, you ask us for more time. If we’re not a fit, we go our separate ways. Trial packages are either $240 or $285.
