Editing Services and Fees

As a general rule, I charge by project fee, incorporating my skills, time, and standard editing and proofreading rates into my calculations. I find it is easier in the long run for both the writer/author and for my business.

(I use a national standard rate of 7 pages per hour, 250 words per page, unless I am notified that the material requires a more meticulous level of work.)
