As a poet and fiction writer, I understand the incredible amount of money and energy needed to sell books. I keep my prices competitively low in an effort to help you attain a quality manuscript without breaking your budget. There will be no extra charges for consultations or other exchanges during the editing period. I believe communication is an important tool in the process and welcome any questions or concerns you may have throughout that process.
Prose Fiction and Prose Nonfiction: I charge one flat rate of $35 per hour for both basic proofreading and more extensive editing.
Poetry: I charge $20 per poem, maximum length 50 lines; 50 cents for each additional line. For full-length manuscripts, please inquire about price details.
