Choose the editing that’s right for you:
Proofreading checks the text for basic grammatical and spelling errors, minor word choice, POV, tense (past/present) and continuity. Rates are $0.0125 per word or $20 per hour which includes two readings/second reading at no charge.
Line Editing looks for opening "grabbers," loose ends, and makes sure the story flows properly ($0.05 per word or $25 per hour. For non-fiction, line editing checks for factual errors, defines chapters and paragraphs, and considers the transitions and continuity of the entire manuscript.
Substantive Editing involves rearranging, deleting, adding and rewording of entire pages and chapters.
Up to $0.75 per word or $50 per hour (Ghostwriting/Editing Blend).
