I charge for services depending upon the length of the manuscript and whether the book requires standard editing services or development edits. Standard services include markups, line edits and margin notes. But, development edits require more time and energy and several consultations so are therefore cost more. Talk to me if this is something you want for your book. If you’re serious about booking a project, I recommend having a Skype session where we’ll talk about the premise of your book and get to know each other and your project. For questions and bookings email firstname.lastname@example.org
Skype/Phone Consultation 30 minutes $50
$50 we talk for half an hour about your project. We’ll discuss the marketability, whether it sounds like other things in the landscape, tweaks for the pitch and more. This is highly recommended at the front end of development edits. Just click below and email me and we can arrange a time!
Face to Face 60 dollars+ 30 dollars per hour after the first hour
If you are in Portland, Oregon, I can sit with you and meet and talk to you at a bar or restaurant for an afternoon about your project and possible future consultations. We will hang out, talk and discuss what can happen next. If you live in town and you want development work done, this comes highly recommended.
