Bottom Lines

Every project has its own special considerations. Tell me more about your needs and I’ll send you a customized quote.

Manuscript Evaluation

A review and evaluation of your document is $650. I’ll go through your manuscript paragraph by paragraph and make suggestions for how to strengthen your story. The goal is to give you more direction and feedback on style, pacing, voice, character development, and overall content structure. A manuscript evaluation does not include any proofreading or mechanical corrections to punctuation, grammar, spelling or diction. It does give you a plan for moving forward towards publishing.

Copy Editing / Proofreading

For copy editing, I like to take a look at the project first. I’ll edit up to 1000 words from any point in your project for free to determine the complexity of your project. I’ll return a document to you with tracked changes (punctuation, grammar, spelling, and diction), as well as queries based on your sample. If you think we’ll make a great team after that, we can move forward with the rest of your project. This also allows me to give you a more accurate price quote. When the project is complete, you’ll receive your full document with tracked changes, queries, and a style sheet that I build throughout the editing process to help you keep track of spelling preferences and any other elements to be noted for consistency. Rates range from .03-.05 cents per word.

Ghost Writing

If you’re stuck for the right words to tell your story, I can write it for you. Ghost writing rates are .30 cents per word. The average book is 60,000-80,000 words. Any additional research, interviews, or transcription needed is priced at an hourly rate of $75/hour.

Video Production

My hourly rate is $75/hour. This includes time spent on script consultations, writing, research, fact-checking, coordination of project, shooting, and editing.

Real Estate Photos and Virtual Tours

I’m happy to work with agents local to the Milton and surrounding area. Edited photos and virtual tours begin at $200.

Payment

Prices quoted above are Canadian. I accept e-transfers and credit card payments in Canadian or US funds, and I provide receipts.

Proofreading

Just call me the typo hunter. Actually, maybe don't. But if you need a second set of eyes to double check your manuscript or marketing materials, let's work together.
