MY SERVICES, RATES & POLICY
- I charge by the page, $4/page for content editing and $3/page for copy editing. If you want both services I give a discount of $6/page. I also charge a $15 service fee. For 10-50 pages I could safely say that I can give a turn around of a 5-7 days. An extra $25 will be charged for rush services (if you need 10-50 pages in 1 to 2 day turnaround). Book-length editing quotes are negotiable.
- I'm offering a $600 flat rate for dissertations of 150-300 pages (not including service & PayPal fees)
- Due to problems I have had with clients in the past, for pieces 40 pages or more I do require 10% of the full quote upfront through my PayPal account. The balance or total can be paid via PayPal (an extra $5-20, depending on length of project, processing fee will be charged), check or money order (I prefer PayPal). I would also ask that you pay out of a personal account FIRST and then submit invoice for reimbursement, if you work for a university or college.
