What You Will Pay
Proofreading - $.01 per word (1 penny per word)
Copyediting - $.02 per word (2 pennies per word)
A per word policy avoids problems with determining the size of a page and how much work can be done in an hour. Charging per word also allows you to calculate your own cost before submitting your document.
To figure out your word count electronically, simply open your Microsoft Word document and click on the Word Count option in the Tools menu.
Minimum Charge - for any job is $25, regardless of word count.
Rush Charges - 25 % surcharge on total cost of the work if less than
the standard 5-7 turn around time.
Note: Turn around time - Standard is 5 to 7 days from receiving payment for your project. Websites and hard-copy projects are handled differently. Larger jobs will take longer and turn around times will vary.
I will be happy to discuss any of this with you at the time a quote is provided.
Cancellation Charges - 50% of the quoted project fee will be charged to cease work on a project once the work has begun.
