Editing and Proofreading Rates

After you’re written your book and your web content, you might be asking yourself, “What’s next?”

Proofreading book manuscripts and web contentFrom a seasoned published author and writing mentor, the honest answer is to have your document professionally edited and proofread. As a writer, you’re so close to what you’ve written, that it’s almost sure that you’ll have errors in your text that you just won’t see because you’ve written the words, edited the words, and maybe even given your text a final proofread, and you think you’re ready to publish it.

Did you know that even professional published authors have someone else edit their stories, books, and content? The reason is because a fresh set of eyes will uncover formatting errors, grammatical errors, and even typos that you totally missed.


I charge by the word to proofread your content. Proofreading is not editing. It’s making sure that the way your text appears is correct—no spelling errors, correct punctuation and formatting.

My proofreading and editing rates range from 2 cents to 5 cents per word. After you send me your manuscript, I will give you a firm quote that is good for the next 7 days. Most decisions are made within that time frame, and it guarantees you that I will be available to complete your editorial tasks in the most efficient amount of time.

When you ask someone to proofread your work, it should already have gone through a thorough and professional editing cycle. This is the last step before publishing your work.
