Book Covers, Playbills, etc.
I look forward to working with you on your book project, your business needs or your art submissions! Heather
My editing rates are $30/hour. 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.
I am also a graphic designer and can do book cover design, interior layout, logo, bookmark, postcard, biz card, one sheet, website, etc. My design rate is $50 per hour. I'd be happy to discuss those with you as well, and from there I can give an estimate.
