FAQ

Frequently asked questions

What is this going to cost?


Cost will vary by length of the project, expected deadline, and depth of the edit. A quote will be given based on word count rather than hours, and should you decide to proceed with the edits, a non-refundable booking fee of thirty percent (30%) of the total amount will be due upon reservation. A final invoice (minus the booking fee) will be sent at the end of the project with payment due via a week of receipt.




How much time should I expect this to take?


Again, this will vary by length of the project and depth of the edit. The quote will include estimated time as well as cost. A cold read of a 50,000 word manuscript may take only a few days, but a copyedit of that same manuscript would likely take at least a couple weeks. The Northwest Editors Guild provide an excellent overview of the process here.
