Welcome to PhotoGraphic Artistry by Heather J. Kirk. Please enjoy my extensive portfolio. I am happy to answer any of your questions. I look forward to working with you on you book project, art submissions or your business needs! Heather
I am a graphic designer and can do book cover design, interior layout, logo design, Newsletters, bookmarks, postcards, business cards, one sheets, all advertorial and promotional work, websites, etc. My design rate is $50 per hour. I'd be happy to discuss your needs with you so I can provide an accurate estimate for your unique project(s). Print coordination and print project quotes also available.
My editing rates are $30/hour. For book projects, I do a 2 hour test edit from which I then extrapolate the price for the entire manuscript. That way I get an idea of your 'voice" and style, as well as the level of editing needed.
I begin with a top level edit, including not only grammar, punctuation and spelling, but also flow, order, logic, fact checking and content as it applies to your stated goals (meaning whether you stray too far or need to expand). I use Track Changes function in Word which allows you to go through and either accept or reject the changes I made. I would start the test edit upon receipt of a $60 deposit. If a full 2 hours is not needed for the estimate, the balance would apply to the remainder of the work. (Though the balance is non-refundable.) Once you review the edits I make in Track Changes, we can discuss how to proceed . Though of course I suggest people continue with a full edit, if it does not seem necessary or if there are budget constraints based on my estimate, we can discuss options available.
