Personally, I hate it when people won’t publish their rates. It makes me think of the old adage, “If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.” And that is absolutely not true about editorial services. They are both affordable and a necessary part of the publishing process. However, it’s hard to list a set price because every project is different, and most require specific quotes. What I’ve listed below is a guideline (and what my quotes are based on). The only exception is the 15 Page Manuscript Critique price. That is a set amount comparable to what you would pay at a conference.
