Frequently Asked Questions

There are many factors that impact what I charge for my editing services.

These include the editorial rates information maintained by the Editorial Freelancers Associate at the-efa.org/rates, how many clients desire to be added to my schedule, how many hours there are in a work week, and more.

I encourage clients to do their research before choosing an editor—specifically, get sample edits—and keep in mind that rates are often a reflection of demand (how many authors are wanting to work with an editor) and experience (newer editors often charge lower rates as they are gaining industry experience).

I only offer editorial services on completed manuscripts. If you would like help writing your book, consider looking for a ghostwriter or book coach.
