WHAT KIND OF EDIT DO YOU NEED?
How much does hiring an editor cost?
Our prices are consistent, whether you need a developmental edit, line edit, or copy edit. We charge $0.006/per word (multiply the number of words in your manuscript by $0.006). You'll be invoiced upon the completion of the edit, unless the manuscript is over 75K words; if your manuscript is longer than 75K, we'll invoice for half once we reach the midway point.
