Memoir Proofreading Fee

Your memoir-proofreading fee is $95/hour for manuscript proofing and telephone consultations.

There is no charge (proofreading cost) for the introductory consultation(s) by phone. The first of the two complimentary consultations is with Denis Ledoux who will—if you choose to continue—then point you to a specific proofreader best suited to your needs. You will then have a second complimentary consultation with this professional.

After the complimentary consultations, you proceed to a trial three-hour billable package before moving on to a regular relationship with your editor.

How you pay the editing fee is your choice. You can pay by check or PayPal. (After the initial trial payment, we pass on the PayPal fee to you so we urge you not to select this option). You can also leave a credit card number on file (again we pass the processing fee on to you) or make an electronic bank transfer (or preferred payment option).

The time required to proofread a manuscript is difficult—perhaps impossible—to predict. A manuscript may arrive to the proofreader already highly polished or it may still be full of errors. The proofreader may also move quickly through one part of a book manuscript and then have to plod through another part.

That’s why we cannot promise you we can proofread a fixed number of pages per hour but we can promise you that we will work appropriately to deliver you the quality proofreading you have a right to receive from us. Your proofreading fee will reflect the condition of your manuscript.

Are you ready to work with a memoir proofreader?

Ask for an initial complimentary session to assess your needs and the suitability of The Memoir Network to help you succeed. All initial complimentary sessions are with Denis Ledoux. You will then be assigned to a second complimentary session with a specific proofreader.

We offer a billable 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. Memoir proofreading fees for the trial packages are $285.
