Rates

For publishers and self-publishers of non-fiction  my rates start from £25 per hour. Prices are negotiable depending on your budget.

The suggested minimum rate listed on the website of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) is £28.65 per hour.

It depends …

For independent children’s authors I have three price packages:

1) Basic proofreading

2) Proof-editing

3) Proof-editing with consultation

 

See below what they involve.

Basic proofreading

Basic proofreading to check for typos and errors of grammar and inconsistency: £25 for stories of 1,000 words or fewer. For stories over 1,000 words, my price is £25 per hour.

Proof-editing

As well as basic proofreading to check grammar and inconsistency, I tweak the text and give suggestions for improvements, using my vast experience from primary teaching: £30 for stories of 1,000 words or fewer. For stories over 1,000 words, my price is £30 per hour.

Consultation with proof-editing

I provide self-publishing advice for independent authors. I will answer your questions as you go along the self-publishing process. The package includes the initial proof-edit in Microsoft Word, then a second proofread of the final book just before your book is published. It will be formatted, designed with illustrations, saved in PDF format, with a separate book cover file (front, back and spine).

Please note: If you want a speedy turnaround (within 24 hours) or need my services over a weekend, you will be offered my ‘rush’ rate.
