Additional editing after final edits – Sometimes, we all need to edit our manuscript a little more than we thought after the final draft is complete. Maybe it’s a sentence that the author wants to be reworked. Maybe its a rewrite of a chapter. I will offer additional editing after final edits free of charge one time only for up to 30 minutes of editing time. After which, additional fees will apply in the following amounts.

1 hour – $25

2 hours – $50

3+ hours – $75

Anything over 4 hours of additional editing is subject to an additional charge. If the author needs to rework their manuscript more than once, the free 30 minutes will be charged at the rate of $25 with each consecutive duration of time following the above model.

 

 

*All services include proofreading of the manuscript for errors, except editorial reviews.
