Good Writer rate for writing and storytelling that shows strong promise of reaching a publishable level is $15 per 1000 words. Multiply your word count times .015 to compute the fee. For example, the fee for a 90,000-word manuscript would be $1,350.
Comparisons: the CreateSpace rate for this level of editing would be $1980, Lulu.com would charge $2000-$5000.
Coaching rate: For writers who need more intensivecoaching and line editing, my rate is between $20 and $25 per 1000 words, depending on how much work I anticipate from the sample, if I decide to take you on.
